Based on our previous work on the Degasperis-Procesi equation (Feng et al J. Phys. A: Math. Theor. 46 045205) and the integrable semi-discrete analogue of its short wave limit (Feng et al J. Phys. A: Math. Theor. 48 135203), we derive an integrable semi-discrete Degasperis-Procesi equation by Hirota's bilinear method. Furthermore, N-soliton solution to the semi-discrete Degasperis-Procesi equation is constructed. It is shown that both the proposed semi-discrete Degasperis-Procesi equation, and its N-soliton solution converge to ones of the original Degasperis-Procesi equation in the continuum limit.
