After standing in front of the blinking ‘paradise’ sign for half an hour, we decided to get in. We heard stories about this club at the Rooseveltplaats and were too curious to let this chance pass by. We walked through the entry hall into a room which could be best described as an arab neon strip club, but without the strippers.
The club was nearly empty. There were some shady characters lurking on their shisha in the back and to our biggest surprise, there was a live band playing. Distorted arab synth lines were dominating the club and the singer was giving the performance of her lifetime. Berber wedding auto tune at its best! According to the waitress they were a famous Moroccan band on tour in Belgium and this night exclusively in Antwerpen.
