Sitting apart from just about everything else in East Baltimore, but a set of train tracks and other warehouses is Paradox, a one time storage place for a marble company. Transformed by former Odell's night club disc jockey and Fantasy [night] club owner Wayne Davis, Paradox, with its spacious dance floor and elaborate video wall system, is the largest livest spot for young adults to get free on their weekly dose of house and hip-hop music.

Since November, 1991, Paradox has attracted a diversified clientele of black and white, straight and gay...all to hear music! Paradox was conceived after the closing of a once popular Baltimore night club, Club Fantasy; and exists to fill the void of late night dinning, dancing and entertainment all under one roof.
The nationally distributed Details Magazine once named Paradox one of the Top 6 Clubs in Maryland and Baltimore Magazine has called Paradox, the Best Industrial Late-Night Spot.
Paradox has been instrumental in the musical careers of Baltimore's world renowned Basement Boys production team (Crystal Waters and Ultra Nat), legendary dance music artist Ultra Nat and super producer Dj Spen.
Paradox is located in a renovated 13,000 sq. ft. warehouse. The highlights of this late night establishment include:
A full service restaurant area, with eating for over 100 patrons (featuring hot & cold sandwiches, pizza, chicken, beverages and an assortment snacks)
2 dance floors, with independent sound systems
A 9 screen video monitor wall unit
A half court basketball court
Rhythm Park (courtyard), with outdoor seating
And intelligent lighting and much, much more.
