    Concerts, beer, balcony

    One of Boston's historic concert venues. It's has a small, intimate environment with standing room on the floor and balcony. See your favorite bands up close and personal before they hit it big!

  • Lisa P.

    Love this place! Two bars!

    Lisa Porter · October 24, 2014
  • Chris S.

    Any music played here is good. Beers are cheap but there's not much room for dancing, if you're looking to do that.

    Chris Smith · September 26, 2014
  • Jeremy K.

    Great, intimate concert venue. There's a bar on each of the two levels. You can also go to the lounge if you need to kill some time.

    A church meets here on Sundays at 10:30am! Lunch provided every first Sunday of the month. Don't miss out!

  • Melissa D.

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

    Melissa Donovan · March 22, 2013
  • Music Drives Us

    Formerly known as the Paradise Theater, this venue opened Sept. 22, 1977 and has hosted performances by U2 (their first in USA), Billy Joel, Tom Petty, Rage Against the Machine and many more. Rock On!

    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

    Mayer Hawthorne and The Country were incredible ... as always. He is a "Must See" if you are in to R+B with a "younger" approach

    Eric V Fields · April 24, 2012
  • Jenny M.

    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

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

    WTBU RADIO · April 10, 2012
  • 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

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

  • Crystal F.

    Was pretty impressed with this venue, good sound and set up inside. Balcony has a good view if you can work around the poles

    Crystal Faunt · January 6, 2012

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

    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:)

  • Karen M.

    Stripped down in its new form, the sound is better. Try the balcony.

    Karen McPhillips · July 18, 2011
  • Sarah G.

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

    Sarah Guevin · June 23, 2011
  • The Feast

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

    All ages shows can be a little... strange...

    Remove the fucking poles.

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

    Since you're so close to the Soka Gakkai, stop by and check out their schedule for Buddhist meetings.

    Hit the less crowded upstairs back corner bar.

  • 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!
