Tango beside the Seine

Paris is a swinging city (External link) all summer long, with dances taking place everywhere and especially at the water’s edge. A lovely spot to aim for is Rosa Bonheur sur Seine (External link) at Porte des Invalides – and on Friday evenings in summer from 7pm, the Guinguette de la Tour Eiffel at Port de Suffren invites the public to dance in the open air on its 650 m² terrace, with DJ sets, tapas, rosé wine and cocktails. Particular enthusiasts of tango gather at the mini amphitheatres along the Seine in the 5th arrondissement, dancing seductively until twilight. If you don’t fancy joining in, just sitting with a bottle of wine on the steps and watching these dancers is mesmerising and utterly romantic.
