Le Batofar

Top choice club in Montparnasse & Southern Paris

Closed for renovation when we visited, this much-loved, red-metal tugboat promises to be even more fabulous when it reopens. Its rooftop bar is a place to be seen in summer; it has a respected restaurant; and its club provides memorable underwater acoustics for edgy, experimental music and live performances (mostly electro-oriented but hip hop, new wave, rock, punk and jazz, too).
