Amnesia is like 7,000 square feet of Cirque de Soleil without the clowns. The drinks are strong, the liquor is top-shelf, and svelte ladies in spandex swing about on swathes of sheer cloth just over your head. The DJ, mixing from the mezzanine, has shades of Girl Talk, and the crowd seems pulled off the streets of fashion week. At center, a raised dance floor will occasionally host live bands, but for the most part guest drummers pep up the DJ sets. The aerialists perform Thursdays through Saturdays, and special guest spinners (like ?uestlove, DJ Riz, DJ Vice, RaviDrums, and DJ Reach) are featured at least once a month.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
