Bateau El Alamein information
Strung with terracotta pots of flowers, this deep-purple boat is a lovely spot on the Seine to sit amid tulips and enjoy live bands (flyers are stuck on the lamppost out front). Less hectic than Paris’ other floating clubs moored here, hence the older crowd, it plays sounds spanning jazz, world and Piaf-style chansons . Hours vary.
