The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

    Fabulous for the disabled
    I am an ambulant disabled person and was quite nervous as I couldn’t book seating at the venue, it is allocated on a first come first serve basis When we arrived there was a massive queue but our instructions were to go to the side entrance and ask to go up to the balcony .. it all seemed a bit vague But when we got there ( the side entrance is on the left side as you face the front of the venue) it was absolutely wonderful service We rang the bell to be let in and the staff where sooo lovely and friendly We had a key given to us so we could use the lift and separate loo. And the guy who explained everything was so kind .. really wonderful.. in the typical Amsterdam style 🤩 We got four seats together on the balcony with a brilliant view. There is a separate bar up there and it’s much cooler and more chilled than down in the pit! It was an excellent experience all round and just shows even an old dizzy like me can still go and enjoy some banging music.. Pixies on this occasion

    Good time here!
    My friend and I had a blast at the DJ night we attended. The online ticket purchase was hassle-free and the queue moved quickly. What's more, there were numerous rooms with different DJs playing, so we never got bored. The drinks were reasonably priced, and the lockers were easy to use, ensuring that we had a stress-free night. Overall, we had an amazing time and would definitely attend again.

    fantastic venue
    one of the best concert venues i've been to! everything was really organised, and the setting of being in an old church is really atmospheric and adds a lot to the experience. i had been looking forward to going to a show here for a while and it really blew me away!

Horrible sound, have never been to a venue with such bad accustics. Bad sound kills good music, very disappointed

Paradiso is a super nice concert venue. The ground floor has standing space for concerts and the second and third floor has balcony seating for people who don’t want to stand. The drink prices are reasonable for a concert venue 6€ beer and 8€ cocktails.

They have a locker QR code system, where you can book one online when entering the venue. Once you pay, you’re able to unlock a locker via a website from your phone. The lockers are 3-6€ depending on the size of locker. Even the large locker isn’t that big (so be conservative with sizing for what you have) and fits a backpack and a bit more.

Alternatively, they have a cloakroom for jackets and bag storage as well but the lines can get long compared to lockers which are self service.

great venue, we went to the second level of the balcony sitting above the band, great view, great sound, lockers were a bit complicated to access online and on the night in the future we we do this in advance. We arrived 30mins before the concert, we wish we had gone 1hr early to avoid the crowds, crowd control was good and we never felt nervous, venue was well supervised.

Went to see Afghan Whigs. Travelled from Berlin to this widely known location. The trip was worthwile. Location is nice and the sound was great. There are some elevated areas so that smaller people (like myself) can view. (Although of course the tall people are there too :-(
Bar staff friendly.
Paradiso membership fee (4 EUR) is peculiar for people from further away.

The rest would be about the show.

Went to see Clairo here and the venue was amazing. The most beautiful and aesthethic I have visited and the vibe matched the artist so well. The staff were super nice and everything worked as smoothly as it could. There were a lot of places near to go to eat after the gig! Great place.

Great venue, clean loos, great views cheap bar prices. Went for two Aurora shows. Used to be a church so a lot to look at. Was really impressed. Some good bars close by. Be nice to go back to in the future.
