Weteringschans 6-8 (626 45 21). map
In the sixties Paradiso was the hub of all things flower power; nowadays it's the number one venue for big acts. The former neo-gothic church has an impressive interior, with a towering ceiling and a high balcony overlooking the stage and dancefloor. There's also a upstairs bar with a smaller stage that is sometimes used for performances after the main event. The Paradiso public has in the past enjoyed some really big names, kicking off their European tour or just enjoying the intimacy of the venue. Over the past decade or so the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, the Artist Formerly Known As Prince and Lenny Kravitz all played Paradiso, which at its best houses all of 1200. Though Paradiso is home to all kinds of musical styles, municipal funding has been cut back, so there's a tendency towards programming crowd pullers.
Times & admission varies, compulsory membership 3 per month.
