A great venue for a gig, great for a typical night in Amsterdam. Take care if 2 things and arrive early: you need to pay for additional membership, which isn't difficult but is awkward. Secondly, there's more than one performance area within the same venue.

We sailed to Amsterdam from the UK for a Divine Comedy gig and so glad we did! The venue is really intimate and atmospheric, with outstanding acoustics. And of course it's in Amsterdam, one if Europe's most beautiful cities.

Saw Bonobo in this intimately sized venue. Sound was really good. Getting in was quick and painless. Wish they had more lockers. Overall it was a great experience and I'd see a show here again.

Iam unsure if it wheelchair friendly, there are stairs to get into the top of the building but I did not notice any wheelchair access. If you check the Paradiso website hopefully they will have more info for you!
