Nice venue. Tickets are reasonable and it is easy to find street parking. Takes a bit to get inside with the line and took over an hour for the show to start, so would be nice if they explained that the doors opened at 8pm and shows starts after 9pm.

Walk Off the Earth killed it at the Paradise last month but the venue probably had very little to do with it. I did love how intimate it was, in the sense the we were very close to the stage, while being pretty close to the back at the same time, but it was pretty crowded. I don't take away... More

Don't go to Paradise Rock club if you're a lesbian and too happy! Last evening my girlfriend and I, after months of excitement, made our way to Paradise Rock Club for the first time to see Azealia Banks. After entering, even though there was a paper sign that clearly said "COAT CHECK $3" (that could have easily been taken down)... More

I've loved every concert I've seen there. The bar, security, and coat check service are all friendly and professional.

My boyfriend and I saw Placebo at this club and it was an awesome show! We were shocked to see the line was so long when we showed up 15 minutes early, but no matter how early you go, it's guaranteed someone will be there before you. Be prepared to wait in line: we showed up 15 minutes before they... More

I have seen a few concerts here... It is a great venue especially for smaller concerts. Toots and the Maytals was incredible live here...

I love going to the Paradise to see live bands. They get great acts and the venue is small enough that it feels quite intimate. You also have access to the balcony and can stand and watch from above. They also have some comfortable benches to sit on up there (for us older rockers, lol) The bartenders and staff are... More

We recently attended a show here and loved the intimate atmosphere, yet the room to move around. It was pretty packed, but there was still room to move and the plenty of air circulation. I would definitely see a show here again!

If you want to see a band up close this is the place to be. You can be 3 feet from the stage. The acoustics and sound was good. Loud enough but not ear-ache loud. The staff is friendly. There is a coat check. The only down side was that there was absolutely no place to sit, so if you... More

Love the club, it is a great place to see anyone, we saw Ian Hunter. The club is really clean including the bathrooms, which is a true pleasure! The staff is really friendly. Would go back again.
