The house where Amnesia now stands was built at the end of the XVIII century. Five generations of the Planells family lived within its thick whitewashed walls. They cultivated the land and built a mill out of stone.
In March 1970 the Planells family decided to end their long life in the countryside and moved to a flat in town. They sold their ‘finca’ (country house) to a widow from an aristocratic background. This was when the most recent history of our discotheque really began.
The island started to enjoy a freedom unheard of in the rest of Spain. The house that would be soon called Amnesia turned into a meeting point for idealists and counter-culturists. In the mid 70’s arrived Antonio to Ibiza, a young man from Madrid who was looking for a new beginning. One fine day in May 1976, Antonio made a deal with the landlady of the house and she rented it to him for 20.000 pesetas (120€) a month. Now all that was left was to christen the discotheque. Antonio thought hard about this until he came across the name, The Workshop of Forgetfulness. The implication was that people go out at night to forget their problems and indulge in an unknown world far away from ordinary routine. The next day he realized that just one word from Greek etymology explained it all. This of course was Amnesia and that is how the island’s most authentic discotheque was born.
After almost two decades of changes, at the beginning of the 1990’s, Amnesia lived a huge change coming from the hands of the new owner. This is the beginning of the latest and the most fruitful era in this temple of sound.
The Ibiza clubs kept gaining worldwide popularity and Amnesia’s expansion was unstoppable. From four bars it grew to sixteen, from thirty employees to more than two hundred in mid-summer. Amnesia started growing bigger and bigger.
- Amnesia’s current location is built in the 18th century.

- The club has been awarded the best global club in 2007.
