My boyfriend and I saw Placebo at this club and it was an awesome show! We were shocked to see the line was so long when we showed up 15 minutes early, but no matter how early you go, it's guaranteed someone will be there...More

We went and found the club a great place to see a show . Security was reasonable and the bar poured a great drink . This would be a tough venue for anyone with mobility issues, but other than that it was awesome.

I went here to see Better than Ezra last summer, as it had been 12 years since the last time I saw them, I was feeling nostalgic for one of my favorite 1990's bands. It was my first time to Paradise Rock Club. A classic...More

Fantastic night, great show. The general admission is a bit challenging as everyone seems to be a bit pushy, however that didn't take away from the show.

We didnt have any plans so we looked for some live music and found a show at the Paradise Rick Club. It was an album release party for Dalton and the Sheriffs. They did 3 sets and were great. We are new fans. The club...More

Rock and Roll at the Paradise is special. Small venue with plenty of places to view. We found a great spot on the balcony to watch the Pretty Reckless. It would be 5 stars but my wife complained about the acoustics --but that could have...More

Came here for Guster's 25th Anniversary four-night stand, and unfortunately that band has outgrown this compact venue. The club is small, with many sightlines obstructed by large support pillars on the main floor. And during these shows, a significant portion of floor space to one...More
