Lovely atmosphere, central and easy to get to, reasonably priced. However, take care to get there early as you have to pay for membership. Also once in, confusingly they have more than one event on at once. We saw Al Jarreau with a a great band... but the act we came for was upstairs! Only spotted the small sign on... More

This popular English Jazz/Funk/Pop band from the 80's & 90's put up a great show in front of a very enthusiastic older crowd that sang along as they apparently hadn't forgotten the lyrics. The place was sold out as the group of 7 incl. two additional brass members (trumpet & trombone) played most of their worldwide hits. Mark King (lead... More

Amazing concert venue. Quick bar, but the wardrobe solutions are quite poor. Had to stand in line for a long time to delivery, and for the pick up after the concert they had made some mistakes and some guests had to go inside themselves and find their jackets.

I've been to both Paradiso and Paradiso Noord at Tolhuistuin. Both have their unique appeal. It's always worth monitoring their agenda with the calibre of acts that visit! Worth the trip to Amsterdam alone

Amsterdam's version of London's Hammersmith Odeon...great for concert shows as its not too big and all seats are good, I saw Marillion, Golden Earring and Focus here back in the day...has aged somewhat, but still a good experience.

Great atmosphere, helpful staff, great Seasick Steve show. Slightly surprised, having bought the tickets online, to arrive and have to "join" the venue. (€3.50 each) Still not sure what that was for?

After 4 months of hard work I decided to meet my sister in amsterdam and party for a few days. The entire night was going well here, we paid the entry fee, there were lots of people and good music. We ordered our drinks at the bar and then moved to the hall outside. We saw smoke everywhere, and so... More

The place was just ok, I was expecting more from such a good reviews The music was also quite fine, it is all about people you are with, not about the club at all

That's what the people say about Paradiso. In the city centre, easy to get there by public transport. A cosy place for a concert, not too big and good sound. Beautiful building with some concert halls
