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..

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...More
