Returned to a gig at the Paradiso after 33 years. Loved it at 21, still love the venue at 54! Interesting architecturally, brilliant acoustics, and a fun crowd of all ages. Its good to find a venue like this still going strong.

Absolutely great club , but it gets very hot and crowded. Watched there Bombay bicycle club and must say the sound was really really good. Bars in good location, indoor smoking area just not enough toilets. Very lively and friendly atmosphere.

Amazing place for late light live music party animals. Not exactly my usual timeframe but we just had to go because the London Calling festival featured an Aussie rock band called The Delta Riggs. It was 2:40 am and to our surprise was fully packed...More

Great venue, so much history and great bands (though they used to book better bands in my opinion). The only truly negative aspect of this venue is the staff mainly the security staff, they are often very rude. And it has been like this for...More

Is it easy to get a taxi home from Paradiso? Want to catch a 00:00 show when we're visiting and we won't have a data plan for the phones to call one to get home.

Iam unsure if it wheelchair friendly, there are stairs to get into the top of the building but I did not notice any wheelchair access. If you check the Paradiso website hopefully they will have more info for you!
