    February is the ideal month to sit with a drink in a beautiful bar after work and watch the sun go down over the river. It is cosy and relaxing during this winter month and also the perfect setting for a date. You are spoilt for choice if you are looking for the best bars in Paris with a view over the Seine. There are even some fun peniche bars that put you right on the water.

    Rosa Bonheur Sur Seine 

    Rosa Bonheur is a classic vessel that reopened as a Meditteranean themed bar in 2014. It continues to please locals night after night with its live entertainment, delicious wood-fired pizzas and the views all the way around the boat.

    Les Maquereaux 

    Les Maqueraux is a little more contemporary in its style and seamlessly blends in with the area like an extension of the riverbank. Again, there are great views thanks to the glass fronts and roof. Diners here can enjoy the finest season and fish dishes with a refreshing glass of wine.

    La Dame de Canton 

    La Dame de Canton is a more rustic vessel that has a lot of charm for its regular patrons. The restaurant onboard has a great atmosphere and menu and is enhanced by the regular live entertainment. During the summer, diners can head up to the terrace for a great view of the river and the boat.

    La Péniche Marcounet 

    The Seine has a different character depending on your location and it can be fun to head out to the quieter banks where the barges are the star attraction. Le Marcounet was transformed into a bar that you can rent out for events and parties. There is also a rustic terrace for a relaxing drink with friends.
