Known currently as the “temple of music”, Amnesia’s history begins with a young philosopher Antonio Eschotado who signed a lease for the venue in the mid 1970’s. He named the premises “El Taller de los Olvidadizo,” or the “The Workshop of Forgetfulness” in English. At his night club Escohotado aimed to create a space where people would be able to come to his disco to enjoy themselves leaving all their worries behind, and temporarily escaping from normal life. He later renamed it to the Greek word ‘Amnesia’ as he believed that this word captured everything he wanted and more from his idea – and so the club was born.
At Amnesia, located in the village of San Rafeal in Ibiza, guests can party at two massive rooms – the Club Room, a dark cavernous space, and the Terrace, an expansive arena with a glass roof that is flooded with light when the sun rises. Both rooms are guarded by the notorious Amnesia ice cannons that could strike at any time. Amnesia covers the best of techno, house, bass, Latin and even some live shows. Guests can dance on the club’s famous hallowed dance floors which can get extremely busy and are famed for incredible communal moments with every hand in the air. The upper levels of Amnesia are VIP, providing an amazing view of the revelry below. The type of experience that clubbers are offered at Amnesia is unparalleled with the club even winning multiple Best Global Club awards over the years.
