view web site ›'s insider take:

Arriving at Showcase is nine tenths of the pleasure. As its nickname—Sous le Pont Alexandre III—tidily notes, the club is under this 19th-century bridge. To enter, you make your way down a curving balustrade to the quai and join the queue at the velvet rope, lit by the watery glow of the Seine. Housed in a cavernous former boat hangar owned by the city and left unoccupied for decades, Showcase opened its 10,000-plus square feet to an exclusive public at the end of 2006. The size sounds (and is) overwhelming, though it also means—by some acoustic miracle—that different music can be played in the same space: say, a lesbian punk-croon band on one side of the dividing bar and funk on the other. The crowd splits by age—from well-mussed businessmen to go-go minettes—and by music preference.
