beautiful venue

Flew over from UK to see a concert. Beautiful venue and great sound. Quite expensive for drinks, but it is a gig venue after all. Would not hesitate to go back.

Lovely atmosphere, central and easy to get to, reasonably priced. However, take care to get there early as you have to pay for membership. Also once in, confusingly they have more than one event on at once. We saw Al Jarreau with a a great band... but the act we came for was upstairs! Only spotted the small sign on... More

Amazing concert venue. Quick bar, but the wardrobe solutions are quite poor. Had to stand in line for a long time to delivery, and for the pick up after the concert they had made some mistakes and some guests had to go inside themselves and find their jackets.

I've been to both Paradiso and Paradiso Noord at Tolhuistuin. Both have their unique appeal. It's always worth monitoring their agenda with the calibre of acts that visit! Worth the trip to Amsterdam alone

Amsterdam's version of London's Hammersmith Odeon...great for concert shows as its not too big and all seats are good, I saw Marillion, Golden Earring and Focus here back in the day...has aged somewhat, but still a good experience.

Great atmosphere, helpful staff, great Seasick Steve show. Slightly surprised, having bought the tickets online, to arrive and have to "join" the venue. (€3.50 each) Still not sure what that was for?
