The Allston Yacht Club is run by Charles Kelly and Bill DiDonna, you can always find one of them hanging around when you’re there. Allston is a neighborhood in Boston, just south of downtown. A place we once called home. The Yacht Club is a nostalgic, amused fantasy riffing off what was the nearby posh Harvard and dropping it into Allston’s working-class streets, populated by many yachts-full of college kids, bands, bums and artists. They were drawn by the cheap housing and they stayed for the one-of- a-kind community that grew up around them. Allston Yacht Club is an homage to the old neighborhood. Echo Park is in many ways reminiscent of what Allston was then. A creative place full of bustling commerce and, we hope, in need of a good, full service joint selling an eclectic food menu, good wine by the glass and cocktails. We didn’t have the yacht club back then, but we do now.
