Fun place to chill or dance if you like. – Just an update for all the possible visitors to the bar. It is not a law in Cabridge that coats have to be checked. It is the bars policy to help ensure the safety of the patrons, and their belongings. The bar is 21 + every day. There is a cover on Saturday nights only ( for now) and it is currently $5.00. We have DJ Billy B on Thursday & Friday nights, and Jonny C on Saturday nights. I look forward to seeing all of you there. I hope you stop by and check it out. The crowd is a mixture of all ages and ethnicities. Come on in and enjoy yourself. Remember to drink responsibly and respect all and you should be ok. If you have a problem please see the security staff and we'll go from there. :-)
No Attitude the Men Actually Speak If you're into Cloned out Drugged Out This is NOT the place – Great mixture of men of all ages. Isn't it great to be somewhere where the average age is NOT 21!! And everyone is having fun, not like the stand and stare bars.
A little too mellow for me... – not from cambridge. went to see a band which was good. had no idea it was a gay bar. i guess i should have had a clue there lots of men hanging around. i would go back but only for a few drinks. great for the kicked back mellow type but not for me.
One of the area's most popular gay bars, located just off the M.I.T. campus. – In Short
While it appears nondescript from the outside, the Paradise Café houses two levels of lively action for the alternative set. Live male dancers perform nightly and adult films play after 10pm. Wednesdays are hip-hop nights, while Thursdays go retro with tunes from the past three decades. Certain nights are 19-plus.
Certainly not Paradise.... – We began our tour at Paradise Cambridge in late April 2005. In all honesty, I almost wish we hadn't. The purpose of this tour is to promote GLBT tourism in New England, however after only 5 minutes at the Paradise Cambridge we were asked to leave if we would not remove our sweatshirts. (And told to "guzzle" our cocktails.) Since we only had undershirts (white tank tops) on underneath we declined and politely left. We were told it was a Cambridge law that you could not wear jackets or sweatshirts in a bar and they must be checked. Upon further investigation we found this was not true and after 3 e-mails to the manager of the club we have had no response. (There are no photos obviously for this review as we didn't get a chance to snap even one.)
Nice to be yourself – easy going No Atitude. Friendly place. I love this place.
GO IF YOUR INTO FUN! – Great Fun ... all kinds of men ... REAL DIVERSITY... if you are looking for 100% Uber trendy shirtless party bois go elsewhere ... if you enjoy all kinds of men having all kinds of fun GO ENJOY! A great place for video watching, dancers, and dancing. If you like a place for the amount of fun you have and not for the amount of prestige you gain for being there GO!
Not Really Paradise – Went there last night after Manray. Unlike most 'gay' clubs in Boston, this one actually has gay men in it. The music wasn't too bad - the crowd is older (the average age is probably about 40). People seemed to be having a good time (I wasn't). The strippers were sketchy - kind of your typical anycity somewhat lame, but at least gay bar.
