A Little Slice of 'Paradiso'
Known as one of the oldest nightclubs in Amsterdam, Paradiso goes way back. In the seventies the wave of the ‘hippies’ took over this beautiful Church building. A few brilliant minds decided to create their own makeshift nightclub and planned a full scale party. Not long after, the police arrived to shut down their epic celebration. Later, the municipality of Amsterdam decided that this unique venue did actually make for a great club venue and since that day the legend of Paradiso was born.
Nightclub Paradiso amassed its popularity because of its location and distinctive architecture and fantastic music acts. This club brings something new to the table with several different floors and balconies for dancing, an open floor and epic DJ setups.
But how did it come to be? The building originally opened its doors in the late 60’s and doubled as a safe place for creative talent to come and openly express themselves. Because of this many young people and travelers from around the world were drawn to the location over the years. Today many comment on Paradiso’s church-like structure which can be seen on the inside-out. This is what helps create a unique party experience every single night for more than 1,000 party-people.
Music in this club is everything. Without it, Paradiso would cease to exist. This amazing location has even drawn in well-known artists in like The Rolling Stones, David Bowie and Nirvana, to name just a few. The acoustics here are impeccable and highly praised by the regular club-goers, including returning tourists as well.
"A Magical Place"
Standing still here is just no option. Paradiso boasts 3 different floors, sometimes playing a different music genre in each. The main hall is where the DJs regularly spin a great mix of old school hits, club anthems and top chart hits. This venue is the perfect place for music lovers with a knack for adventure and new experiences.
Paradiso is a well-known venue for both locals and tourists alike. People come from all over the world to attend legendary performances, solid DJs and new performance artists. This venue is popular among students studying in and around Amsterdam. Celebrate ‘Noodlanding!’ one of Paradiso’s organized parties. The literal translation of the name is ‘Emergency Landing!’ and has existed for more than 20 years strong.
