Batofar
13th arrondissement

This lightship of the Parisian night sways every evening till the early hours to the beats of underground hip hop, rock, electro, dancehall, house, minimal, techno, drum’n’bass, jungle and dubstep, and there’s a fantastic view from its bridge. There’s an open kitchen looking over the dining room, where the chef serves up good quality regional dishes like hunk of lamb in a herb crust with a scoop of polenta and parmesan for €18. From June until September the bar even sets ups a temporary beach; come and admire the sunset while sprawling in a sun lounger on the pier amidst sand and greenery, with a cold beer and Aveyron charcuterie, brochettes or tapas.
