“one of the best clubs I've ever been in my life !”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Paradiso is a former Dutch historical church, which was converted into a concert hall. This music venue programs a wide variety of artists from Eryka Badu, Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Lenny Kravitz to Willie Nelson. The best seat in the house to me is on the balcony, where you can look down on the artist and get an amazing view over the whole floor level. Paradiso is more then just a place to see live performance. It's used for so many different functions when it comes to entertainment.
was asked to see the Erykah Badu in concert. I believe you know the answer to that question. Yes, of course she rocked the house! I had such a great time. Erykah Badu is always full of life when she graced the stage. She never seams to surprise me when she electrifies the stage with her free spirited and consistently evolving character. This multi-talented and neo-soul woman can sing and dance her heart out. I was highly impressed with her performance in Amsterdam.

“Best music venue in Amsterdam”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

If you like live music, the alternative club scene and a dramatic setting then this is the place to be. Anyone who is anyone in the music business has played here. It has a special atmosphere and acoustics being a converted church but has a really intimate feel because it is a smallish floor area. I love to see bands here because you can get right up close or just hang at the bar and still see a great gig. As it is a club there is a small membership fee but it is valid for a month. A good excuse to go again. Check the program well in advance as it tends to sell out quickly.

“A stroll down memory lane”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Loved it, hadn't been in this place for years. Still the same apart from now you can actually breathe in there. Saw a free concert during the Uitmarkt festival

“Best place to see a show in Amsterdam, hands down”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

I've seen several shows at the Paradiso, an old church turned music hall. I don't know what it is, but each of those shows has been magical in its own way. Maybe it's just the right size and the acoustics are excellent, but there's an ineffable vibe that makes a show there stand out. Hope your favorite artists are coming soon!
