Club Amnesia closes. Inset is the owner Dr. Innocent Nahabwe
Yesterday was the last day of operations at Club Amnesia as the proprietor, Dr. Innocent Nahabwe notes;
"We realise that in the nightclub business, 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.
"We are grateful to you, our customers, for keeping us in business for 8 Years. Ever since we opened, the number of similar businesses that have opened and closed are uncountable. We have remained open daily for 8 years, because of your support. We thank you!"
These were the Theme Nights at the only night club that hosted its customers to a farewell party.
The issue of bars and night spots closing shop is not new, it has been the order of the day. Kaos, Sax Pub, TLC were one of the most powerful back then, but closed and just recently, Laftaz, Liquid Silk in Bugolobi closed too.
In his book, 'Treating Small Businesses' that goes for 50k from any major bookstore around, Dr. Innocent Nahabwe who also owns Galaxy FM and Blue Cube an SMS company among others has a chapter on Club Amnesia.
He wrote about the problems at Club Amnesia in his book; Treating Small Businesses
'Cheers, Club Amnesia' is Chapter 8 from his book, he talks about how cleaners and bouncers made it rough and tough at the now closed bar.
"It was tough. Everyone was out to get something for themselves. The cleaners were stealing toilet paper and bouncers were making people pay entrance fees when they weren't supposed to. Failure to pay close attention to these and lots of other small things, and we would have folded sooner or later. It wasn't long before we found our way around and steadied the ship."
