    Downstairs, the further from the stage you are, the better the acoustics are. So, be prepared to choose between being close to the band, or actually being able to tell what you're listening to.

    Try not to get annoyed by a bunch of 18 year olds!

    If you are here for an upstairs show, don't stop in the doorway to watch the band as soon as you enter. Keep moving.

    When we come back here, be careful if you're in the front row. Uliana might kick a can of beer at you lol

    Don't pay for parking. Park at a meter at the church up the street. It's free at night

    Get here early. And make sure you don't have will call. That line takes forever!

    One if the best venues for live music in New England. From the building itself, to the staff this place is amazing. MCL

    Favorite venue and staff in MA! Good sound, good drinks. Just gets freezing in the winter!

    Terrible sound, tons of teeny boppers, no heat, overpriced drinks and shitty security. It's like every other venue in the country. That being said not a bad seat in the house.

    The downstairs is for more mainstream bands. The upstairs is usually for local bands.

    For some of your favorite bands come to the Worchester Paladium!

    I liked it. Parking across from the venue was okay even though we got there late.

    There are great concerts here for not a lot of money. However if you come to one that's listed as upstairs, be prepared to be surrounded by people! Read more

    The bathrooms are a disgusting war zone.

    It was like trying to enter a demilitarized zone. I'll not return to this venue again.

    Crazy long wait even for us VIPs. NO heat indoors. Stay up near the lounge if u dont wanna get trampled in the mosh pit. Small venue so u can still see fine from the lounge...

    Get here early for a seat and crap before the bathrooms become less sanitary then eating out of the toilet.

  • Jessicka D.

    One of the best places in Mass for metal bands. There is plenty of standing room, and a big space for a pit. There are booths too, but you should probably get there early if you want one.
