A Thursday night out with good music!

Me and three friends didn't go to Paradiso for a concert. We went on a Thursday night (I think it was a student night too) We arrived around 00:30 and the queue wasn't too long and within 5 minutes we were in. Entry was around 7.50 euros and cloakroom was about 2. The venue looks very pretty, we were amused... More

Saw Marilyn Manson here on Monday. Brilliant venue, looks like an old church? I thought the sound was really good and stage a good level so band felt 'near'! There are two tiers, you don't need different tickets to go on the balconies (like in the UK) you can go up them and in the main standing area as you... More

Very cool venue for concerts but the membership fee slows down admission. Lines were far too long - even when we arrived 1 hour after the doors opening.

We came to Paradiso to see the Replacements. The venue has a main arena which is also overlooked by balconies on another two levels. I would have probably have preferred to stand in the balcony areas as it was difficult to see what was happening on stage but saying that - the acoustics were fantastic. The high ceiling means the...

Great venue for live music. Varies nightly. Old church interior is awesome just to behold and look at. Saw Black Eyed Peas amongst other excellent shows there. Do not miss this spot when you are in Amsterdam!

Don't get me wrong, this has the potential to be a great night club, but to make a great night club you need good DJ's. NEVER in my entire life have I seen such awful DJ's, NEVER in my life have seen 300+ late teens/early 20's so comatose on a dance floor. Imagine the village disco DJ taking requests and... More

Paradiso is a very popular concert hall located near the Leidseplein nightlife. The (rock) music venue opened in 1968 and is housed in a converted former church building constructed in 1879. Their daily programming is varied and offers no-frill standing room only for 1500 people including < 150 seats around the two small balconies. The Marcus Miller concert I attended... More
