Your Guide to Apartments in South Baltimore
The weekend is the best part of the week for most Baltimore apartment-ites, and is the only time that Paradox Entertainment is open. This club is definitely an after hours warehouse bar made for dancing, playing and people watching. The club is hyped up hip hop music with three different rooms with individual vibes in each. A diverse crowd is in attendance, but mostly younger types.
While Paradox is a non-alcohol serving club, it is BYOB. That means you may carry in your vodka or rum, and purchase the cups and mixers including sodas and juices to serve with it, and that's only if you're over 21 years old. The dancing can get pretty hot at the "'Dox," especially in the warmer months, so make sure you have some cash to buy some refreshment. All sorts of mixers are available to combine with your drink, and those alcoholic beverages are to be drunk by 2 am. And speaking of refreshment, there is just enough food available to tide you over for that 2 am munchies attack when you've been dancing all night. While merely a concession stand, Paradox offers nachos, pizza, and hot and cold sandwiches.
It's cool to be able to hear trains rumbling behind the building in the unique location of the 'Dox. It's just off MLK Boulevard under the Russell Street Bridge, across the street from the M&T Bank Stadium. The 13,000 square feet space includes an actual basketball hoop on half court for those athletes that aren't dancers, and gives them a chance to burn some energy. Once the game is finished, check out late night sports or videos on the club's nine screen video monitor wall. Hours for Paradox are late Friday night, 11 pm, until early Sunday morning, 6 am, with a break for cleaning and closing from 5 am Saturday morning until midnight Saturday night. For you insomniac Baltimore apartment-ites, this is the place for you. Be aware, if you arrive after 1 am, a cover is charged.
Kudos to Paradox comes from Details Magazine, who has named Paradox one of the Top 6 Clubs in Maryland in the past, and it was also called the Best Industrial Late-Night Spot by Baltimore Magazine.
