Housed in a former 19th-century church in the heart of Amsterdam, Paradiso is an enormous, multilevel music venue and dance club with an international reputation for delivering intimate performances by big-name musicians – a feature that continues to lure both bands and fans.

An impressive balcony wraps around the dance floor and stage in the main room, where masses of people get groovy to an eclectic mix of music. Giant stained glass windows accentuate the vibrant setting and serve as a backdrop for some of the biggest bands in the music biz.

When the live performances end, the venue transforms into a club with DJs spinning disco, jazz, and funk all night long.

A smaller room on the top level hosts either a different live gig or a DJ pumping out more alternative beats, while a second-floor smoking room and a basement café offer quieter places to take a quick breather.

The beautiful setting, outgoing social vibe, and stellar performances attract a diverse clientele that changes according to who’s on the schedule – though club nights do tend to draw a harder party crowd of students.

Paradiso’s incredibly diverse line-ups, however, promise a great night for almost all tastes, evident in the fact that everyone from The Rolling Stones to Nick Cave to Willie Nelson to Jamiroquai are a just a few of its past headliners.

Paradiso Pops OFF!!!
N'neka H. Aug 19, 2013
If you're visiting Amsterdam and love venues like The House Of Blues (HOB) in America, the Paradiso is the only spot in town that can give you that raw, uncut, rock and roll experience. With a fantastic venue, concert-goers and party animals can enjoy a mosh-type experience, or take a birds eye view of the party from up top. The music pumps and the base vibrates leaving you with the feeling that you still haven't gotten enough. When you arrive, be prepared for a super long line. It seems like when theres a Paradiso party, every young head in town is trying to be in perfect attendance. The crowd is a full on mix of ethnicities and cultures. When we stopped over in Amsterdam on my first visit here, we popped in at the Paradiso when MC Fit was rocking the party. I have to say, from London, to Paris, this was the best night we had out. Stiff drinks, amazing music, super hype sound system. The Paradiso has it all. I suggest you go there and let your hair down. Meet some people, and have an great time.
Amazing venue
Selin S. Jul 17, 2013
Been there only once and had the best night outs in my life. People were really friendly, music was amazing and the venue was absolutely incredible. The location is also very good. But keep in mind that there might be a huge line before entrance, so try to arrive early if there is a specific show you want to see. Drinks and the entrance are not that cheap but make sure to check it out if you ever stop by in Amsterdam and are into alternative places.
Paradise City
Rūta G. Jun 9, 2013
PARADISO - literally the synonim for Guns'n'Roses good old Paradise City - though the grass is not always green, but the girls still pretty. The place is built on the foundation of live music, with rather stretchy walls - fits up to 250 people. Here you'll find old, but tasty interior and staff that knows how to pour a decent beer without stopping the conversation. With the crowd diverse and colourful as the city itself : from students to grannies, from rockers to hiphopers. Get your best dancing moves and blend in!
A night to remember
Jameel E. Mar 26, 2013
The old 19th century church that sits gloomily a few feet from the Leidseplein hides a bright interior where an overwhelming variety of music is played, heart-thumping live acts and equally good pre-recorded sets. Paradiso is a globally famous venue, internationally recognized for providing quality performances by some of the biggest names in the business. Paradiso boasts three rooms in which DJ's can work their magic: the main room with its overlooking balconies, the cosy little room or 'kleine zaal' which doubles as a relaxing living room when the monthly Voltt parties are organised, and finally the basement where assorted snacks and drinks can be purchased. As one of the most famous clubs in Amsterdam and indeed the whole of the Netherlands, Paradiso has had the honour of hosting some of the biggest names of the past decade including; Joe Jackson, Paul van Dyk, Kayak, Amy Winehouse, Smoosh, Deftones, Joy Division, John Dahlback, Arcade Machine and many many more. The atmosphere created by these impressive surroundings is cool and laid back with nights regularly lasting until 05:00 and the general feeling is that a night spent at Paradiso is a night well spent indeed.
Pop Temple.
Rose O. Mar 6, 2013
Paradiso is the Pop-temple of the Netherlands, name a punk-, pop- or rock- band and they played there when they were still undiscovered. You always have a friend that claims that they've seen John Legend when he still played in the little hall in Paradiso. Paradiso is a legend among artists too - in a documentary about Paradiso, Patrick Watson calls it the best place he ever played a gig in. That is not because the acoustics are amazing, cause they're not - but the fact that Paradiso is an old church, gives every gig a mystic feeling. Music is my religion. This is certainly the most legendary concert hall in Amsterdam, a must see. Be sure to go to Noodlanding on thursdays instead of Melkweg's Cable.
Old but the most robust & the hottest
Yu S. Feb 9, 2013
When I visited Paradiso, they held a party called "Asian Night" on that day. Since so many people were wating in line, it took a quite long time to come into Paradiso. It was annoying, but I realized that it deserved to enjoy a fantastic atmosphere at Paradiso. There are three different halls at each story, which are disparate. So, you can enjoy different kind of atmosphere in Paradiso. FYI, it was quite cool that I could look down the ground floor at the balcony on the first floor. This is nice place to have a talk with your girlfriend or boyfriend. If you make a new friend in Paradiso, take your friend there. You will be able to have a great time. However,IMO, staffs in Paradiso have to be vigilant. there were some hassles between visitors during the night. However, only few staffs intervened this trouble. Finally, those fights were stopped by a police's arrival. Anyway, Paradiso is very nice place to enjoy a music and make a friend for anyone. if you have a chance to visit AMS, don't miss it!
Legend
Mokum G. Dec 10, 2012
MokumGroupie's got endless stories at Paradiso, that's why it's such a legendary place. From EODM chugging bourbon backstage to witnessing Courtney Love climb up walls. From Buena Vista handing out free cuba libres, to The Flaming Lips basically throwing one huge party. The spot is incredible. And everyone knows it. Even the small room is solid. Although last time we waited almost two hours for Frightened Rabbit to take stage. All good tho boys, Amsterdam can cause chaos. For specs, you can fit about 1000 here. The balconies aren't always open. It depends on how busy ticket sales are. Be ready to check your coat. Don't forget the bar downstairs. There's a hidden piano behind the fenced metal wall there. Sometimes bands will jam there and no one will know it.
Live music in an old church... NICE!
Arjan v. Dec 9, 2012
Paradiso has a bit more atmosphere than the other concert venue, Melkweg. This is because it's housed in an old church. Behind the stage you have beautiful windows. And the balconies are also very nice. All in all this concert hall feels really intimate. I have seen quite a few great bands there. Usually this place has a bit more mainstream bands than Melkweg. If you are in Amsterdam for a weekend and really want an experience to remember, go to a show in Paradiso. You won't regret it! ENJOY :).
Best venue... in the world?!
Amster M. Dec 9, 2012
My favorite place to see a band play in the whole world. Paradiso can chew me up and spit me out and I still come running back to them. Bands that play in Amsterdam always want a spot on this stage. It's a dream for many. And the big guys will sacrifice larger venues like Heineken Music Hall just so they can play a few nights in a row at Paradiso. I've seen so many bands there it's silly. I won't tell you the best spot, but try to get as close as you can to the stage. Or get in the middle of the balconies. I've been there for club nights as well, also fun when you're with a group.
