Originally founded in 1968 as a creative outlet, Paradiso is now a concert venue, club and cultural center. Paradiso caters to a diverse audience, hosting musical shows, such as country, pop, rock, and punk genres, as well as non-musical events, like poetry festivals and modern dance performances. Musicians such as Al Green, White Stripes and Lady Gaga performed in the main hall, while Franz Ferdinand made their start on Paradiso's small stage. Word of advice: buy your tickets in advance.
