Le Batofar: Best Electronic Venue in Town

Great place to listen to great electronic music ! Arrive early as it is on a real boat and capacity fills quickly ... then you have to wait for people to get out ! Intimate experience inside. Check who is spinning before going.

Dress Code Casual, Sneakers ok.

Le Batofar: Also have a drink at daylight ! Buvons de jour !

A splendid place on the shores of La Seine : a boat where you can eat, drink, dance (electronic music)... And during daytime, you may also have a drink just in front of the boat...

Un endroit superbe sur les quais de La Seine : un bateau ou l'on peut manger, boire, danser sur de la musique electro... Et pendant la journee, on peut aussi s'en verser un petit face a la peniche...

Dress Code None. The name means in english : "the lighthouse boat" : anyone may enter a lighthouse, no ?

Le Batofar: My Headquarters

My FAVOURITE place in Paris !

Although the team has changed, they really have a non commercial programmation, you can discover Djs and music that you won't hear anywhere alse. The concerts are reaaly cool and usually with VJ.

And although it is very famous now I think it's really an "off the beaten path" place.

It is a cozy and reallly original place.

In the winter I like going to the "Cantine" for drinks or dinner in the small room.
Then, of course, go downstairs for a concert, where you can dance on your own, no pressure, no sticky guys, and the best Rhum with Ginger !

It is a place where I would not mind going alone, there are mostly guys but its not a picking up place (or at least much less than in other discos !)

In the summer, it is more a "show off" place because you can stay on the terrasse on the boat or on the shore, get a nap on the transats and have a couple of beers in the sun, leastening to some good and cool electro, watch the Parisians pose... everyone is happy and nice... people come with their kids in the afternoons... its a big mix of different people, from young to old, unknown and show bizz... Yeah !

Dress Code Winter :
Dark, casual, no "evening dress" code.

In the summer :
From casual to Ibiza "look".
When they have the bar on the shore and the so called "Cake and Milk" afternoons I've often see people dancing in their beach costume and barefoot !
