The Culture Trip
The Best Bars Along The Canal From Villette To Bastille
This cosy venue is an exciting place to spend an evening, not least of which because it's on a boat! The Péniche Antipode puts on various concerts, dance, film, theater, and comedy nights (some for children), and it also offers a bar and restaurant space on its top deck, charmingly illuminated by bold crayon-colored lights haphazardly strung from the frame of the roof. Local tip: their planche marine is of particularly good value, in an "are-we-still-in-Paris?" kind of way! The Péniche is relatively cozy, so it's recommended to book ahead for events.
