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.

Was in Boston recently and, to my delight, discovered that one of my long-time favorite reggae bands, Steel Pulse, was playing here at the Paradise Rock Club.. I was lucky enough to score tickets to the sold-out show, and my experience there was just great.. In my 60s and slowed by a bad hip, I can no longer stand for... More

If you like excellent bands and willing to stand up for over 4 hours this is the place for you. We drove a long way to see the band Marillion only to find an old run down looking building with no tables or anyplace to sit or stand other than in front of the stage. We chose to stand in... More
