Many people have been disappointed when the legendary Batofar closed. After months of work and a refloating and a new name – Bateau Phare – the famous concert venue is said to reopen this late 2019 with a more funk-world-music-disco program and a restaurant on the deck.
While waiting for it to reopen, don’t twiddle your thumbs and enjoy the beautiful terrace set on the quay, just across the new Bateau Phare.
At the origin of this project, Vincent Clouzeau, Cyril Muchel and Vlassia Ferrie who wanted to give to Bateau Phare and its 350-sqm terrace open every day from June to October 2019 a true exotic look.
And what a travel it promises! Thanks to the cocktails (€12) first, created with fresh ingredients and syrups made on the spot. For instance, we could name the Island Hopping (rum, grilled pineapple, Grand Marnier, cinnamon, pepper, sugar and lime), the Accapulco (tequila, jalapenos-infused suze, cucumber juice, elderflower cordial, tonka syrup, ginger ale), the Salome de Bahia (cachaça, litchi liquor, curaçao, Bahia spices, sugar, lime) or even the Tonki Tonka (cognac, peanut butter, pineapple, Tonka syrup, lime).
The food menu is also an invitation to travel. Here, dishes are exotic and spicy, from all over the world: Mexico, West Indies, Italy for starters, Japan and India for mains.
Go for the coconut and lemongrass chicken curry and black rice (€14), half-cooked swordfish, exotic virgin sauce and corn (€18), cod fritters and Creole sauce (€6) or the sirloin steak, Creole sauce and sweet potato fries (€22).
Or how to travel this summer 2019 without even leaving Paris!
