    Paradise: Rock Club & Lounge

    Paradise is a well-known venue in Boston for rock concerts by both famous & not-so-famous artists. It's a good place to hang-out for its lively and busy atmosphere. As long as you're with good company, a nice time can be had for a great night out even if you're not too familiar with the sounds & music of the visiting rock artist. Overall, the atmosphere, crowd and service were good, while light fare and drinks/cocktails were okay.

    Dress Code: Typical outfit for a night out in town

    The Paradise Rock Club: Up and Coming Bands at the Paradise Rock Club

    Paradise Rock Club - Boston

    I have a fond spot for the Paradise...as I played there back in '96 on the 4AD 'Shaving the Pavement' tour.

    The venue tends to host the coolest bands around at the time, leaning more towards the Alternative/Independent music scene and many who go on to fill even bigger venues later in their careers.

    There is a surrounding balcony from which you can usually grab a good spot and get a good view of the stage without being squashed to death by the masses.

    Next door you’ll find the Paradise Lounge, a bar, restaurant featuring a full menu and decorated with the artwork of local artists & the odd dj performance.

    I have been back since to see a few bands.
    I guess, at the end of the day, it's a normal kind of rock club in many ways, but as I say, I have fond memories.

    Dress Code: Smart casual dress.

    One of my best nights out...

    One of my best nights out ever, was in Boston. Try the area around Commonwealth Ave. I went to the Paradise club . The Ratskeller was highly recommended too.
    Superb ambience, cultured, unfussed , yet buzzing. Read the student guides. They know how to party.

    Dress Code: Smart and casual.
