The Paradise celebrates its twenty-five year existence this year. Today it is one of the oldest rock venues still standing and in operation in Boston.

Originally the Paradise was also included in the same circuits as The Rat, and the Channel. The Paradise played a large part in helping the alternative rock scene catch on, on the East Coast. Featuring such bands as INXS, The Pixies, Rage Against the Machine, Tom Petty, REM and U2 to name a few.

U2 in particular has a special historical tie to this venue. The Paradise was the first club that U2 had played when they began to tour the United States.

Even though the club itself has a capacity of 650 people it still provides a great atmosphere and a unique sense of intimacy that is not felt in other venues of similar size and character.

Today the club still lives on playing local and national touring acts, helping keep the rock and roll dream alive. Definitely stop by to check out the latest in rock and roll as well as satisfy your hunger in the lounge if you get hungry.
