Paradiso Tips (16)

Paradiso: A cultural icon

Paradiso is mainly known as a venue for live music but during the weekend it sometimes hosts club nights with local and international DJ's and occasional live acts. See the program on their website www.paradiso.nl

Paradiso is located in a former church, the interior has high ceilings and a balcony overlooking the stage area, with three large illuminated church windows above the stage.

Paradiso: A Live Band

Paradiso is a stellar nightclub, period.

It's walking distance from anywhere in the city. Don't ask me where it is exactly, but you can ask anyone once you're there and they'll give you directions, it's Amsterdam and the locals are always glad to help.

Three floors of dance spaces. Apparently it's a converted church. The main floor is the main stage as well. The backdrop of the stage is giant stain glass windows, which is brilliant.

I paid about 15 euros and got to see a live band, I can't remember what they were called but they were a latin, ska type deal. Wicked for dancing. Later I went upstairs and there was some classic house dj's and I danced my ass off up there as well.

After I left, I smoked a joint on a bench on the canal and headed back to the hostel. An unforgettable night.

This is one of the best clubs I've ever been to, bar none. A nice club space, obviously a great city, beautiful men and women, good music, the whole package. Most British, American and Canadian indie and semi-mainstream artists make a stop here on their tours so check ticketmaster for shows when you're planning your trip.

Paradiso: Paradiso

We saw two Irish bands, BelX1 and The Frames here at Paradiso. Tickets were 20E, but like all music venues in Nl it seems that you have to buy membership to them as well as purchasing your ticket. At Paradiso membership costs 3E for a month long ticket.

Dress Code Anything.. but even when dressed casually, Amsterdammers are quite trendily stylish, so dress according to the gig you are attending I guess.

Paradiso Amsterdam: Dancing in the chruch

One of the greatest places where one can go to a concert in Amsterdam is Paradiso. This remarkable place (it used to be a church!) has great accoustics and a wonderful set up. The stage is always close and only a few thousand people fit into the place. This means quite personal concerts from still great artists. On the other hand it also means being in time with ordering tickets.

It´s a old church turned into a disco and place for concerts. It´s very interesting to see the inside and for that worth a visit.However is often overcrowed specially by young people which makes the movements difficult.

Live Music: Paradiso

The Paradiso is an old church near the leidseplein that has been converted into a music venue. Mostly live music is played here but also at the weekends there are often DJ's playing. Its a nice spacious venue with a very high ceiling and a balcony. Definately worth checking out as its one of the best venues in the city.

Dress Code no special dress code i think

Paradiso: Where's the party at?

Amsterdam has so many options when the sun goes down. Still, Club Paradiso is one of those rare treats that will have you shaking until many days later. An old church, coverted to nightclub, concert venue, and cultural event space, Paradiso has got it all. Entrance fees can be a bit steep depending on the event, but they always throw a hell of a party.

Dress Code Depends on the event- clubwear always works though.

Dancing: Nightlive of Amsterdam

This city loves to party and has some great dance clubs. Amsterdam is the capital of house music, and you'll also find a good mix of reggae, Drum'n Base, Trance, Techno, Disco, and Hip-hop. Two great clubs, both near the Leidseplein, are the Paradiso, and the melkweg which also have often live music.

Live Music: Paradiso

In Amsterdam are in fact only two real platforms for popmusic. One of them is Paradiso, near Leidseplein (Leidse square). The building was once a church, but now it is used for a bright variety of (pop)music. One of the highlights of Paradiso was the concert of Rolling Stones in 1995.

Please note: There is no sale of tickets at Pradiso. Tickets must be bought in advance at AUB ticketshop, large Postoffices/VVV offices, GWK offices (located in the larger railway stations), on the internet http://www.ticketservice.nl or through Uitlijn tel.no.: +31-20-6211288. The newest possibility is to buy tickets through Paradiso website http://www.paradiso.nl/ (or evt. at the entrance on the performance evening if still some tickets available).

Dress Code There is no special dress requirement, but it goes without saying that weapons, knives and harddrugs are not allowed. There is body check.

If not mentioned otherwise membership is compulsory
€ 2,50 a month membership, € 17.50 a year membership (2004)

Paradiso: Heavenly music

Whether you want to dance the night away, or catch a live act, this is a great place to go.

Paradiso used to be a church and is now a great club.

This great venue has great dance nights but also features some great performers in a much smaller venue than I was accustomed to seeing them in Canada.

Outside of music, this venue also hosts a lot of different multimedia events.

The Paradiso! The oldest dance...

The Paradiso! The oldest dance and rock temple I know in Amsterdam. I was about 14 years young when I came here the first time and about 24 I was there the last time. Until now of course, although it was afternoon and it only went open at 7pm. However, the most famous bands have playing here in the past. Even the Rolling Stones played here. It was also the place where Holland renowned, but alas, now mourned singer 'Herman Brood' started his career. To know the future program (in Dutch), just click
here.
