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..

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

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...More
