Good electronic music, but batofar is quite small. Worth a visit if you want to have a trouble-free experience. I personally prefer Concrete which is not too far away.

Spent the best night of our Europe trip at Batofar! Music and People were amazing!!!! But we've lost a lot of money there.. prices are really tough. But wouldn't say that you can get a better party for less money in Paris..

Yes, nice location but in my opinion far too expansive considering drinks and cocktails quality and choice. Been there for the first time yesteday: arrived at 22h, at 22h30 still impossible to order anything; finally at 22h45 a waitress come to us to pick up our orders BUT...they just finished all the burgers (the only choice at a reasonable price)....

Amazing place. As a Canadian going to Paris on a regular basis, I was surprised how this place has this special atmosphere that everyone enjoy wherever they come from.The people running this know what partying in Paris should be! I'll go again it has become a legend of the Parisian night!

We wanted to do something different one night in Paris so we asked around and had Batofar recommended to us. Different it was, it is on a Barge on the River Seine and doesn't look particularly attractive from the outside. If you get there early you can feel the gentle rocking of the barge as other boats go past, if... More

Grimey boat with cool quirky interior. Dance floor visuals and lights was awesome but the music was a bit boring. I don't mind minimal techno but some more energy wouldn't kill you. Ok prices at the bar and nice staff. The crowd was around 22-24 yrs on average. Nice outdoors seating but sadly no music outdoors. Definitely worth a visit!

I've been living in Paris for a while and the Batofar is really the place where I feel the most at home. Relaxed atmosphere, laid back dress code, friendly staff and, above all, quality music. The choice is quite eclectic so you better choose your night if you have a favorite style. Me, I've been to superb drum and bass... More

I went to the 80's new wave nights twice (it only happens the first friday of each month) and had a great time. The crowd is in their 30's and 40's, unpretentious and the people who work there are very nice. The dance floor is large and there are lots of cozy dark places to hide out in if you... More
