If you were planning for a night out today, Club Amnesia shouldn’t be anywhere close to your list of nightspots.
This after the club finally followed the footsteps of its former neighbours, Club Rouge and 9 Degrees that closed shop years back.
In an emotional statement, Innocent Nahabwe who has been one of the partners in the club said the painful decision to close the club was after coming to terms with the fact that current trends don’t favour closed bars.
“Business is just business. We should, as business owners, know the trends of our industry is taking and if possible anticipate the direction our consumer habits are taking,” reads Nahabwe’s statement in part.
According to Nahabwe, they have realised that everyone is drinking from near their homes – mostly in open spaces.
“Closed bars are phasing out. We have therefore, taken the step to close Club Amnesia w.e.f 2nd August 2019.”
The club had its last party Thursday night, which has always been its campus night.
By the time of closing, Amnesia had been in the business for 8 years.
Through these years, it will be remembered for various night themes, including being the host venue for several weekly performances for various musicians including Bebe Cool, Bobi Wine, Radio and Weasel.
Two weeks back, another popular hangout, Jazzville – Bugolobi also closed shop. Silk Liquid, another popular hangout joint in the same area also closed shop.
De Posh bar – Kabalagala and DNA lounge are the other famous nightspots that closed shop recently.
