This is a � guinguette �, a charming French phrase that means � a place where we eat, drink and dance. � Its first location, in the Buttes Chaumont, became an instant hit when it opened a few years back and is already considered a classic. Mostly locals and Parisians flock to it for its laid-back, scruffy, indoor-outdoor appeal. And now, all that is available right on the Seine, in the shadows of Invalides and Pont Alexandre III. This location just opened in April on a barge that's anchored along the banks of the Seine. From morning to midnight Wednesday to Sunday you can chill out on one of the chaise longues that have been set up quai-side, while gazing at the Grand Palais. Don't expect fancy here – plain hotdogs, sodas, beers and table wine. But do expect fun and that sense of relaxed comeraderie that built Rosa Bonheur's reputation.
Port des Invalides
- Nightlife near Parc des Princes: "Chilling out along the Seine is always a scenic option. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays, this is a barge parked along the Seine that houses a bar. In the summer time it's packed but even in the cooler months it offers an unusual kind of Parisian place to grab a beer."
- Best for Nightlife near Parc des Princes Because: Since opening early summer 2014, this place has not stopped packing in the young crowds.
