view web site ›'s insider take:

Housed in a restored bateau-feu—a boat used to patrol waters after dark—tethered to the Left Bank of the Seine near the Bibliothèque Nationale, the Batofar is also a lighthouse for the electronica scene in Paris, with well-known international DJs regularly appearing on the monthly roster (expect to hear anything from indie-rock to funk, too), as well as live music. The groovy crowd clambers in year-round, as the boat's surprisingly commodious, with three bars and 1,000 square feet of dance space. When the fourth terrace bar opens in summer, the scene moves down to the quai, filling up the new (landlocked) "canteen." The perfect place to watch the sunrise is at one of the after-parties (held two Sundays a month; not regular, so check with venue).

Closed Mondays.
