#342 of 564 in Nightlife in Paris
LV Osprey entered service as a Light Vessel for the Commissioners of Irish Lights in 1955. On 9 May 1975 she was sold to the New Ross Harbour Commissioners for use as a floating oil berth, pilot station and harbour store. On March 1998 she was sold again and moored on the Seine.Le Batofar ignited the "night club on boat" trend in Paris. This lighthouse boat (in French bateau-phare) offers an original setting on the bank of the Seine in the 13th arrondissement. It is known for its progressive musical programming which champions cutting edge electro bands live, and its renowned DJ-driven afterhours dance parties. During the day, Batofar is also a community gathering that serves as a restaurant, café and a summertime "beach" hang-out (Paris-Beach).

  • By this beautiful sunny Sunday, we sat on the Lounger. 10 minutes later, the server challenges us in a very rude tone by telling us that it is not open. I told him it might be kinder. He has the audacity to tell us: 'aren't public benches. I would remind this charming gentleman that without customers, there is no work. Dear Sir, if you don't like your job, must be changed. A.

  • The environment is friendly, especially since we were almost alone during our visit. Very nice on this point. However, it remains on very expensive for a choice and limited... quality basic service rates

  • Went there in the evening only to find out that the boat had moved. I was unhappy as it had ruined a perfectly planned out evening having drinks with my girlfriend on our last night in Paris.
  • Went there on a Wednesday night in February, so we didn't exactly encounter the height of nightlife, but the drinks were crazy expensive and the music was pretty horrendous. Not great service either. Maybe it would've been a better time on a Friday night in June...
