Diverse programme featuring local bands and DJs, but also upcoming bands and DJs. Famous names perform here too. Clean environment and the toilets are manned and cleaned regularly. The official...

Came here with a Dutch friend on Thursday night which we were informed was student night. Couldn't believe it when we went inside- one of the best night club venues I have been to!!! Spacious and not too cramped, HUGE fan of the smoking area located on the second floor- not used to inside smoking in England. Great music too!... More

I went to RnB night at the Paradiso on a Thursday night.. I had a great time! Dancefloor area and Bar was smoke-free.. Upstairs had a designated smoking room interesting indeed! Old church setting which is always cool! 2 DJs mixing it up.. Great music! Funtimes!

Paradiso is a decent club. It was rather pricey, and the que took forever. But once inside it was great fun. I wasn't a big fan of many clubs in Amsterdam, I always preferred pubs and bars. But I would definitely recommend Paradiso!

Paradiso is a very nice venue, for mainstream but also alternative music. I already did several metal concerts here and the sound was always great.

On my annual trip to Amsterdam I try to include 2-3 new venue/adventures. On my recent trip, a show at the famous Paradiso was a top priority. This converted church is quite beautiful on the inside with large stained glass windows gracing the main floor. I arrived a little early and thus got to see the end of the main... More

Even if the concert is bad there's always the nice stained glass to look at. It can get crowded so come a bit early to have a good spot in front.

This must be the the 7th time I've seen Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes at this atmospheric Amsterdam venue. The band love playing here as the sound and atmosphere in this converted church is great. Very appreciative crowd. You can sit upstairs on the balcony or the long bench downstairs. Nice to stand downstairs however and dance the night... More
