Batofar – Come dancing on a boat

Parisians love to party and to use the spaces they’ve got at their disposal to do so… It is why you have a few barges used as restaurant, bars and/or dance floor. Like the Batofar. Located pretty far from the center of Paris, but just near the François Mitterand Library, the boat is a restaurant and a bar. During weekends and/or weekends Batofar hosts DJs and concerts. 

The bar is pretty cool with a nice terrace, widely opened on the Seine, which has a pretty cool view at night, a very good spot with the nicer days. The barman is nice and the cocktails are just what you may need in order to go dancing on the small dance floor.

The restaurant, which is on the ground floor of the boat, will serve burgers and ham and cheese plates. They are nice enough to bring you the food you ordered upstairs, for you to be able to enjoy the music and the terrace while eating. Just know that you may find a better burger at a food truck located just near the MK2 movie theater. Let’s just say that if you don’t want to leave the spot you’ve got on the boat and you are hungry it is an option, just not a great one.
