About this Place
The Yacht Club is Iowa City's main source for live music set in an environment where you truly are part of the music. We have entertainment 6 nights a week with friendly servers, a coat check, and serve tater tots! Trust us when we say this is not a financial endeavor - it really is about having a great time.
The Yacht Club is located in the basement of 13 S Linn St in a building built in 1918 in downtown Iowa City. The exterior of the building has remained basically unchanged since it was built and was restored in 2000. Our entryway has recently been remodeled in the hopes to improve upon your Yacht Club experience. Another great thing about our location is that there is free parking right across the street if you leave after midnight on weekdays and after 3am on weekends.
We are here for your fun - plain and simple. We are not some out of town corporation and we are not some small time bar owner trying to squeeze the life out of each penny. If at the end of the night we break even but the band was great and you had a ton of fun, then we consider that a win. This has been our mission since the day we first opened and we still consider this our goal in life to this day.
