The big red lighthouse boat is still going strong, with live DJs and bands from all over Europe playing electro, rock, reggae, folk, punk…if it’s good, they’ll be here. The terrace bar (free entry) on the quay opens evenings from May through September, with DJ accompaniment, a BBQ shack, chaise lounges and a view of the passing river boats. Laid-back atmosphere. Open nightly from 7pm, until dawn on weekends.
