Paradise Club, located on the 7th floor at The Times Square EDITION, is the brainchild of Studio 54s Ian Schrager and is home to an immersive theater experience called The Devouring: A Marriage of Heaven and Hell by award-winning nightlife collective House of Yes. The Devouring is a love letter, an ode to the human experience, and a dazzling neo-burlesque extravaganza. It is a modern-day cabaret, a feast, and a celebration of being alive. Paradise Club is 21+ only.
Exceptional show! Bottles overpriced. Service mediocre.
Even though dinner was very good, the system of sharing everything between the parties makes it informal but prices and sophisticated environment do not go together with that sharing from the same plate.
In the restrooms everything seems wonderfull but wonder why when the dinner finished they picked everything up adn at the time you went to the bathroom you had no more amenities nor 5star cares. The restrooms are for men and women and it is strange to find yourself alone with someone you dont know man or woman ... you paid a 5 star service.
The same happended at the wardrobe. When dinner finishes the photo machine was away and it seemed you were delivered out.
What beautiful work by a very talented ensemble. You can tell the performers are treated well and have fun because they stayed after the performance to dance and party with the audience. I even asked if they were contractually required to hang out after the performance and they all said "No, We love hanging out with you because it's fun!"
Reminded me of a mix between Cirque du Soleil's "Zumanity," "Moulin Rouge," and "Black Swan." Drinks are super pricey and so are the tickets, but when you see how many people are involved in the event, the price tag makes sense. I would definitely go again!
Please be clearer about whether the bar seating is served food, snacks, etc. ..we were super confused and even the staff communicated things incorrectly when we spoke on the phone in advance of the event.
The show was great, but the food was terrible
The show was so good. Kat is a marvelous singer and entertainer. I loved how the performers invited people to the dance floor during the intermission. On the food front, the appetizers were so delicious and are great for this type of setting. However, the main course was very cold. The baked Alaska was addictive. Overall everything was great and I’d definitely recommend it for people who visit NYC and want to experience something different.
Food is horrible and way over priced! Show is entertaining but could be so much better.
Overall, it’s something different to do but extremely overpriced for what you get with both food and entertainment.
Great show and great food with a twist) Absolutely loved it, will be back for a different show anytime soon)5 out of 5 experience
Great Club at Times Square with a beautiful act and great performers!
Truly an experience you'll only have in NYC. The food was absolutely fantastic and the show blew me away! The talent of the singers, dancers, acrobats, and the whole theme of the show was absolutely incredible! It's definitely a pricey night out in New York, but 100% worth the experience.
Fabulous shoe and talented performers!! We loved the experience!!
The cost of the event is severely overpriced. It’s supposed to be a five-star dining experienca plus a show, but the dinner was subpar in all aspects including quality and quantity. The show was fantastic and talent top notch, which made it slightly easier to overlook the exorbitant bill, but it was still difficult to swallow. I would say a more appropriate value for this venue would be 40% or more less than it’s currently priced at, and that’s taking into consideration that I wouldn’t go out to eat what they served by choice, even if it was priced fairly.
Oh what a night..... where do I even begin?
The positives: The performance was OK, with a fair amount of talented performers. And that’s about where the positive review ends.
Now, onto the negatives. First, the second we walked in, we were taken back by the strong bathroom smell. Apparently, there is a plumbing/sewer issue. The staff were actually spraying air freshener to mask the smell 🤮. Luckily, we opted for bar seats and did not have dinner. Though I do feel bad for the people who did.
All this was minor. The big issue came when the waiter tried to run an $800+ charge for 3 people! He did not actually show us the bill, but only asked if he could run the card he had on hold. We had one round of tequila! The show is $95. This place charges $150 per shot! No, they do not have a price list. They surprise you with the charge at the end of the night. We obviously refused to pay, so they did us a “favor” and brought down the tequila shots to $65 per shot, with a message from the manager “I hope you ladies learned your lesson and will ask for the price next time!”
Stay away! Far, far away.
If you want a fun burlesque show, head over the Williamsburg for Company XIV show. A much better show and a much better overall experience.
Food was delicious but was more like hors d'oeuvres than dinner, so we were not very filled. Ambiance and service were topnotch. Performances were stunning and beautiful. Highly recommend for drinks, light food and a great show. If you're looking for a more filling dinner this may not be the right choice. Perfect for date night or a girls night out.
If you’re going for the food - really don’t bother. It’s shocking they can describe It as a 3 course Sharing dinner. The starter is A small bowl of nuts, popcorn and raw radish and carrot! Although there was more for the mains again it was so small and not the best standard. Desert was a pineapple filled with ice cream and meringue on top with 4 spoons. Seriously the food is embarrassing and the chef should hold his head in shame. BUT if you’re going for the show, to have good drinks and then dance for the rest of the night then it’s definitely a spot you should go to. The show is a cross between The Box in Soho with Lio in Ibiza. Very intimate setting. Liked the concept, loved the umbrella girl. Although could have done with 2 more strong acts between the main dancers and performers The juggler was awful - definitely replace that part. But honestly we had a great night and the music in the club afterwards was really good, go and enjoy but grab dinner somewhere else first!
Amazing performers. Amazing story/production/act/show/decor/vibe. Amazing service. Staff was all super attentive and on top of everything. Food was beautifully presented but unfortunately was subpar. But would recommend this experience for the show and service alone!
Beautiful ambiance and show, great mixology, staff service was excellent. Food however wasn’t great. Worth a pre show drink at the lobby bar, and staying for the club after if visiting from out of town as an easy nightlife option.
We returned all the food they offered as it was way below average. They offered pasta as an alternative for the mains, it came cold. The show is cringy and embarassingly amateur, with plenty of mistakes and unprofessionalism. The whole experience was a flop and a tourist trap.
The show was good. But the food is awful. Would suggest to eat before going
This place makes me miss queen of the night, was a way better value of food and entertainment/experience. I think this place was extremely over priced for the food and entertainment you get. The food did not taste fresh and the meat was cold. The dessert was good beside the chocolate wonder ball that no-one ate, a little lazy if you ask me. The service was amazing, Yuriy is great. The drinks were extremely expensive ($18-$25 for a basic cocktail). Entertainment was ok, nothing wow'd me. The bill came to about $1000 for three people without tip. I left wishing we went to a Company XIV show instead, its in bushwhick if anyone hasn't heard of it, much better show that only serves drinks. i wouldn't recommend it to any of my friends, not for that price. sorry.
Overwhelmed by this awesome night. Highly recommend!!
The show was amazing and i most do if you are in NYC
Absolutely fantastic- exceptional experience and attention to details.
The show is great! I love everything about the show. Loved the entertainment, the food was not so great, the drinks are not included so expect to spend a lot of money on drinks.
The food and show were both unique and terrific. I can’t rave enough about it.
Quite a unique and memorable experience for NYC. Worth the $ for dinner & immersive spectacle. The space was spotless and everyone was professional and welcoming. Service was a bit rushed for dinner. Drink prices were $$. Very accommodating for vegetarian and vegan options. Overall great experience and would go again.
The way the food is serve is very rush and unprofessional
Beside de show who is pretty good The rest is OVER PRICE
Splendid evening. Stimulating atmosphere, fun entertainment, delicious food and excellent service...really excellent service.
Yuri was a fantastic server. Attentive and helpful with a fun personality. We were well entertained throughout the night by all staff and performers and had an intimate date too. We’re looking forward to coming back again.
This is an experience that I highly recommend for everyone. I took someone special to me for there birthday and we all enjoyed the show. The food was so delicious. For what I payed for it was well worth it. I'm already planning my next visit.
I went to Devouring to celebrate my husband's birthday. I was really hoping to be blown away with the hefty price tag.
The staff is friendly, the decor is nice, the vibe is great, and it's very intimate with not a ton of tables- which I like.
The food was horrible! I was so disappointed. My drinks were half poured. They are better off serving a full dinner menu and just focus on the show as the seller.
The food was cold and unthoughtful. The show was rushed and the performers spilled my dates drink all over him and the waitstaff was no where to be found.
$195 per a person for a dinner can be found in any diner and a show that was rushed is not worth it.
Very nice place a bit pricey
The show was awesome but the food was honestly really bad.
The show was excellent, very nicely done and had an amazing story line. The food was ok but the show made up for it. I would definitely go back and highly recommend.
Amazing experience. Might be one of the coolest things in NYC. We went for Halloween and the ambiance, decor and food were amazing. Our server, Yury was extremely attentive and a lot of fun. Can’t wait to go back. 5+ stars!
We had a great time at the Paradise Club. Food is not that great but the show is amazing.
It was entertaining enough and the decoration of the space itself was super sexy. But to pay over $450 for two people to have mediocre food and decent enough entertainment, I certainly would not recommend this to anyone. The caviar nachos were beyond salty. The dessert was amazing but again, so overpriced for the entire thing. Would not go back.
Awesome experience, great food, show and service. very unique
I REALLY wanted to love this. As a lover of quirky, artsy, fun and avant-garde experiences, this seemed to be right up my alley. I read some negative reviews and thought surely those folks must not get it. They must be meat and potatoes people with no imagination, and too straight laced to enjoy creative entertainment. I was wrong.
The room is absolutely stunning, with very cool artwork on the walls, red lighting and a beautiful bar backdrop.
Service is extremely attentive. My water was refilled practically after every sip.
The food was creatively and adventurously displayed — which I loved — but, man, did it suck! Not sure how this is from a Michelin-stared chef. It was really, really terrible. I consider myself an adventurous foodie, so it’s not that it was too ambitious. Most of it simply tasted awful. And was greasy. And too salty. And the chicken pate dish was so bad I wanted to spit it out, but because I was in public, I washed it down with water.
The entertainment had so much potential. The performers were very talented and they were friendly and mingled with the audience, invited us to dance, made themselves available for selfies, etc. But parts of the script were really lame. So throughout the evening, the pendulum swung from very impressive (acrobatics, break dancing, umbrella foot juggling) to summer camp talent show and back and forth all evening.
It’s a shame because with a better script,tighter performances and choreography, this could be an edgy cirque du soleil. Alas, it wasn’t.
Because of the quality of the food and amateurish performances, I didn’t think the $195 was justified. $150 would feel more appropriate.
Still, it was a fun night out, I just dont think it lived up to the hype.
