Paradise (also affectionately known as Parasite in my group of friends) can be a hit or miss adventure. It's a two floor club with the top floor being a bar area with a stage for male dancers, and the lower floor is where the dancing happens. The whole place is on the dark side, especially the dance floor which is... More

I arrived after 11 pm on Saturday. There was a five dollar cover charge. On the ground floor there were many people consuming drinks. I saw that Blue Moon beer was on tap so I asked the bartender for tap Blue Moon. He told me that Blue Moon was available only from the tap. A glass cost six dollars. I... More

Went there twice on vaca. It was great, cheap drinks, and amazing dancers. The only thing that was a lil disappointing was that Sal, the bartender, was super cute, funny and sweet, but he seems nearly impossible to cyberstalk lol haha. But great bar, people should check it out.

They should not be charging a cover for this place. They force you to check your jacket, hood, even pullovers whether you want to or not. Then you have to wait in line forever to pay to get your coat back (last night we got in line at 1:45 and we had to wait 40 mins-there was still over 100... More

Fun lil place for what it is ... no where near as bad as that Boston boy wrote ... you want attitiude or glitz then Boston is across the river ... you want 20something dancers - sometimes bused down from Campus in Montreal, chill locals, masculine guys, and fun dancing ... head to Paradise ... As of Dec 2006 ...... More

I find it difficult to describe the Paradise without use of profanity, but here goes: 1.) The facility is dirty and disgusting. I felt similarly about the staff and clientele, but that is a matter of opinion. That the place is filthy and smells like urine is a matter of fact. 2.) The staff is rude and there is a... More
