This is one of the most popular venues in Amsterdam. A converted church now serves a more eclectic congregation of ravers, jazz freaks, rock fans, performance artists and more. The main hall has a great dance floor and balcony. Other halls in the basement and top floor host djs and jam sessions into the morning hours. A monthly 5 guilder membership fee is added to tickets, which are usually very reasonably priced.
WARNING! As usual with venues in Amsterdam, there is little fresh air inside, so it can get hot, and the cigarette smoke gets VERY THICK. So if you can't handle the smoke, don't bother torturing yourself here! A friend recently passed out in this place due to lack of FRESH AIR! When will the management of these Amsterdam venues start caring about the welfare of those who attend their events?
You make TONS of money from these soldout events, but can't be bothered to supply adequate ventilation?!
ARE YOU TOO CHEAP? OR DON'T YOU CARE?
SHAME ON YOU PARADISO! SHAME ON YOU AMSTERDAM!
Remember the Paradiso can now be sued for any injuries or suffering customers experience due to negligence... Tort law is here to stay!
We've now lowered our rating on this venue, and may soon discountine ANY promotion of the Paradiso schedule on this site.

Is the smoke getting SO thick that you can't even see the ambiance, the atmosphere, all the people having fun?? I agree, most clubs (not only in Amsterdam, the Netherlands or Europe for that matter) are very well ventilated, so they get hot and cloudy...something to work on but please...when you write things like this on your website it gives people a very narrow view of a great venue like Paradiso!! It has a lot more to offer than smoke and rising temperatures!!

Posted by Anonymous on 2003-06-27 10:16:59 My Score: The club was very good, people pass out not due to the lack of fresh air but due to the fact that they are on every drug known to man. They just use lack of fresh air as an excuse. Pathetic.

Posted by Anonymous on 2002-08-26 05:01:20 My Score: Fantastic music and great venue, but the evening was spoiled as more and more people were crammed into the club. It became a huge crush, I saw a couple of girls pass out as it was very hot and there was no fresh air / air con. A real shame.
