    It holds a place in history as the first venue that U2 ever performed in the USA and has hosted some of rock's elite.

    U2's first ever show in the US was at the Paradise Rock Club! – Team Live Nation

    Make sure you go to the Paradise bar before the show. Great people, atmosphere, and their TVs stream the concert so you won’t miss a second. – Scott P.

    the renovations that were made over the summer are a definite improvement. the poles are less obstructive and there's more standing room. one of my favorite venues in boston!

    Legendary bands like AC/DC and Mission of Burma have been rocking your face off for decades at the Paradise Rock Club. Brought to you by THE EXPENDABLES opening August 13!

    When exiting the club either use the back door or in the main halfway stay to the left side. Right side is for merchandise and coat check.

    On the floor, there is a pole. If you get stuck behind it, you won't be able to see the second half of the stage.

    TAKE A SHOWER BEFORE YOU COME HERE. I find most of you to be smelly. Thanks!

    Best bands in the Bean! Xoxo

  • Becky A.

    U2 played their first show here. Not all that smelly for a venue. Upstairs there are seats. They have a no moshing/crowd surfing policy, as most clubs should, since it's no longer 1994.

    Becky Anderson · October 22, 2010
  • Elizabeth H.

    See a good band! Most recently, I saw Mew.

    Elizabeth H · December 11, 2009

    Hang out in the bar next door after you get your wristband and hand stamped for the show. Better beer and some seats. Good for between sets, too.

    Jenny Mackintosh · April 18, 2012
  • Sarah G.

    Avoid the middle stall in the upstairs ladies room. The door is on backward ;-)

    Sarah Guevin · June 23, 2011
  • Joseph S.

    The main bar inside the venue by the stage has the best selection. The upstairs bars do not stock all the items. This would be especially true of Stella Artois!

    Bad bartenders badder beer. Avoid.

    Tessa Lazarus · April 9, 2010

    Post show, Hang out in the coat check line. Girls hate carrying coats. And there's free bacon sandwiches

    One great club with great Music

    Try not to get stuck behind the poles, once you're behind one, it's a hassle to get out.

    Evan Petto · October 4, 2011

    Remove the fucking poles.

    Regardless of what band you’re there to see, the Paradise offers a proximity to the musicians that many clubs don’t. Get your tickets cheaper right at the box office. Read more

    BU Today · September 13, 2012

    great venue close to BU's campus, awesome shows all the time.

  • James L.

    A nice venue for midsize bands. Beer selection at the bar is a bit drab.

    James Lau · March 22, 2012
  • Carolina C.

    great venue for concerts, close and cozy with the bands

    Carolina Chacin · March 12, 2012

    If you don't feel like being in the mosh of people in front of the stage (or if you're short like me) watch from the balcony! great view:)

  • The Feast

    Buy tickets well ahead of time for big-buzz bands. Some acts sell out far too swiftly, especially indie rock royalty.

    Venue is amazing. Last time I was there was Junior Prom and it has changed in a great way. Great bands. Thumbs up!

    Sonig Varadian · May 19, 2011
  • Graham S.

    Even better after the rennovations. Kill time in the lounge if the openers suck

    Graham Spector · April 16, 2011
  • Sarah G.

    Drink beer and dance. Enjoy the fact that shows here always rock.

    Sarah Guevin · November 6, 2010

    The lines exiting by coat check suck. It's been 30min and I've moved 50 feet. Get your coats and merchandise early here.

    By far one of my favorite venues around Boston. They just need to get rid of those poles so there's more visibility upstairs...
