The area
Address
Neighborhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

Latin District @ Paradiso was an amazing experience on our first day in Amsterdam. Very experienced security which makes you feel safe. Lockers upstairs for when you’ve come straight from an entire day of exploring the city, like us. Good music! Very hot inside though, more fans on the ceiling would have been welcome 😂 toilets are free (voluntary contribution). Lots of spanish speaking tourists in the crowd which made it even more fun!

Took my daughter and her friend here tonight to see the vamps. She had a great time and atmosphere was very good. Got to have her photo taken with the band so a very happy young lady.

My only issue would be that there was no searching of anyone around them and non of the bags were searched. With everything that goes on nowadays I would of thought there might of been some searching. This issue was brought to my attention from my daughter and her friend so they must of had an issue as well. They mentioned that they would of preferred too of been searched and there bags for safety measures. Maybe would be an idea to do or if you do make sure it's done throughout the whole evening and everyone.

A wonderful night enjoyed by 2 massive vamps fans.

Thought we’d try a gig outside of the uk but with Paul Heaton & Jackie Abbott. We were not disappointed, the Paradiso has excellent acoustics and a professional atmosphere with sound and lighting. Loved every second of being in the Paradiso. Will come back.

I have visited this place a week ago. The search at the entrance was terrible. The security guys took everything out of your pockets and even socks. The problem was that I had a prescribed medication in my coat pocket, several pills, these guys took it out from my pockets and threw it away. Actually no questions were asked, I would prefer not to go to the club, but have it with me since they were required for my medical therapy. Will not ever go there again. If you go, make sure you don't have anything with your except money.

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 we decided to light a cigarette in the hall where everyone was already smoking joints. Without any warning or polite request, I was unceremoniously dragged out of the club and my sister who was actually holding the cigarette was never spoken to and left wondering alone, as to why they were throwing me out. She got very worried and followed after the guard who then asked her to not smoke cigarettes in the hall, they then took our drinks as well, which we had bought with our money and literally asked us to leave!
This is extremely impolite and ignorant in the part of the venue. We were tourists, no where did it say that it was OK to smoke weed here but not cigarettes. If we had been told politely, we could have simply stubbed the smoke. There was no need for them to drag us out and spoil our visit.
We were decently simply spending time with each other, the staff was rude and short tempered, and treated their tourists with disrespect, in a city which boasts about its party life, this left a sore memory in our minds.

We saw Michael Franti at the Paradiso which was an awesome concert in the heart of Amsterdam.

The venue is pretty cool and a lot of musicians have played here so a neat experience to see a concert if one is playing here while you are traveling through.

One thing to know ahead of time, they make you pay a membership fee which is not included in the cost of the ticket. It was an additional 7 euro at the door. The membership fee gets you nothing except in the door. It's good for 1 month (30 days). They should call it a service fee - not a membership since you get nothing but to go through the door. Or tell you it's the preserve a historical landmark - at least you feel like it's going to good rather than just more money out of your pocket. Kind of lame because the tickets were already a little pricey but at the end of the day - it is awesome to hear a good concert in an awesome city.

There was a long queue to get in so we had a few drinks in the pub first. the wait is about 2 hours as they search everyone going in so be on your guard. ITS WORTH THE WAIT Paradiso is by far one of the best nights I've ever had. lost my phone and was returned by the staff. The door staff and security you cannot fault. The cloakroom staff were not so great the male man was very unhelpful and was the only let down of the night. (very rude) other than that it was a fantastic night.

Was recommended to go here on a Wednesday by some locals in Lux. Was a great night! Some interesting song choices.. but everything's what you make of it. The crowd it attracted was friendly, no hostility, and everyone was up for a good night. Just don't take it too seriously. Bar staff were friendly too (hope you like Heineken!!). We were there til close (4am), think the entrance fee was €7 each which was a bit harsh, but it's open late and gets busy.

From my experience, a fun mid week venue.
