If you like live concerts Palladium is the right place for you. You can jump here for the great shows of Polish and international artists (the line-up for 2013 include for example Hurts, Coma, Kamp! etc). In the last years Busta Rhymes and Richard Burton have played here.
Palladium is also one of the venues of the famous Warsaw jazz festival ‘Jazz Jamboree’. It was opened in 2005, but has already gained a reputation as one of Warsaw’s leading music venues. Palladium is usually a music club, but they also rent their space out for theater shows, galas and for private parties. I’ve never figured out who owns it, but it is somehow related to the University of Warsaw.
I was there recently for the concert of the young Polish singer Monika Brodka. The show itself was great and Palladium was really packed. Around 1500 people can get inside and it does happen that tickets are sold out (they do take care of our security).
Before the concert I always enjoy a drink in the spacious lobby of the club (they sell mostly beer and soft drinks. I always feel safe there and I feel like I’m among folks that share my music taste.
