Tommy Up and Sarah Brown of PYT and Emmanuelle have launched the Yachtsman (1444 Frankford Ave., 267-251-3234), a retro tiki bar in Fishtown.

Chris Thomas and Greg Charnock, who designed Pizza Brain, have enlisted artists including Pedro Ospina (who fashioned a Moai-like head out of the plastic bed of a truck) and Nick Bader. They based the place's look on a fictional yachtsman.

"It's a tiki interpretation of Pee-wee's Playhouse," Thomas said. The bar is made of thatched grass and reclaimed wood.

Signature drink is a Caribe Welcome Coconut, served in a fresh, cored-out coconut ($15). A snack menu will begin when - as Up puts it - he gets around to it.
