Pictures: The Paradox through the years

Starting in 1991, the Paradox became a mecca for dance music in Baltimore. Alongside Club Fantasy (shuttered in 1990) and Club Choices, it played a fundamental role in the evolution of B-more club music during the '90s, becoming a platform to many of the voices -- K-Swift, Rod Lee and later DJ Class -- that came to define the genre, as well as Baltimore-bred house divas like Ultra Nate. In January, it closed for five weeks for a renovation. Here, see the club's evolution from 1997 (our earliest archival photos) to the present day. - Erik Maza
