Prolific DJ Bob Sinclar is re-opening Amnesia this fall in the historic Collins Avenue location that it previously occupied in the early 1990s, and the new incarnation of the club is quite awesome to say the least.
The first Amnesia closed in the 1990s and the location went on to host Cafe Tabac, Opium Garden and Privé before it was again closed due to noise problem with its neighbors. The club as been completely re-done and includes a new roof which the owners hope will curtail its previous noise problems.
Amnesia aspires to a friendlier experience than many other South Beach VIP clubs which are noted for their tight velvet rope policies and often snooty attitude. As an example, Amnesia has stadium-style seating surrounding the dance floor where patrons can lounge without ordering table service.

With DJ Bob Sinclar footing the bill, it’s no wonder Amnesia’s prime focus is on the music. The DJ booth is state and includes its own green room and artist entrance. A Funktion One sound system and a 3 segment LED panel behind the DJ booth will support the world class DJs that Amnesia brings in.
The club holds 2,000 people while the dance floor can comfortably accommodate up to 500. For those who remember the layout of Privé, this area has now been opened up and overlooks the dance floor giving the space a more open and airy feel.
