Saw Suede there. Easy to get to by tram as it's right by the Leidseplein tram stop served by numerous routes. Well run bars. options for standing or seating. only 1500 capacity so great intimate venue. The coatroom is situated near the exit/entrance and so the queue snaked across the doors as you were trying to vacate making it a... More

Went here a lot of times! Very often nice artists and every night (especially weekends) very nice party's! There is a lot of room for dancing but also places to relax a little bit!

My first visit to Paradiso. Our choir ,pop4shore, performed last saturday during the choir weekend 2016. It`s a deconsecrated church transformed in a concerthal, plenty of floorspace an upper balconies. Easy to get by tram from central station.

Great venue, got to see amazing shows here. However, it depends who you come to see, the public varies accordingly. Not fun when people throw their drinks on the floor..seems to be part of the local culture though. The smaller dance floor is perfect!

The club is huge (with an expected waiting line of 10-15 minutes) and naturally also packed, with a floor that is super sticky due to the fact that everyone litters and throws their plastic cups into the dance floor (no joke) or just drops them onto the dance floor so don't wear fancy shoes!!! The music is great and the... More

We flew in to Amsterdam to catch the Bloc Party gig recently. It was a great weekend and the Paradiso definitely played its part. The gig was excellent, made even more memorable by the venue. An old church, the Paradiso is somehow spacious yet intimate at the same time. There are plenty of small bars too so lining up for... More

A famous rock temple where everyone from the Stones to Prince love to play...Amsterdam has the coolest music venues - check out the Bimhuis and Splendor, too!

Known this venue since 1968 when it was part of the hippie culture in Amsterdam. Regularly visited it to get a blow. Now I was here to see one af my favourite Dutch pop groups De Dijk. Large crowd and standing for a couple of hours makes it for me now a days hard to stand out, but I did.... More
