I've been to Paradiso quite a few times and pretty much all of my experiences have been positive. I have to say that I've only been there for concerts, never on club/dance nights or whatever. First of all, it looks gorgeous, both on the inside and outside. It used to be a church building, but it appears that its true... More

We saw Michael Franti at the Paradiso which was an awesome concert in the heart of Amsterdam. The venue is pretty cool and a lot of musicians have played here so a neat experience to see a concert if one is playing here while you are traveling through. One thing to know ahead of time, they make you pay a... More

Amazing place for late light live music party animals. Not exactly my usual timeframe but we just had to go because the London Calling festival featured an Aussie rock band called The Delta Riggs. It was 2:40 am and to our surprise was fully packed with revellers. Individual and crowd behavior was surprisingly good and the atmosphere was lively but... More

Great venue, so much history and great bands (though they used to book better bands in my opinion). The only truly negative aspect of this venue is the staff mainly the security staff, they are often very rude. And it has been like this for years, that's very unfortunate. The prices are okay. And their website is very messy.

We booked tickets to see Jools Holland - who was amazing can I say. There were no seat numbers on the tickets so thought it would be tables and chairs and sit where you could. We got in at 19.15 - door opened at 1900 and found that there were no seats in the main hall, just benches round each... More
