I wanted to express my huge disappointment in the behaviour of ‘Amika’ staff, particularly on the night of 21/01/12. I haven’t met not even on member of staff that would provide at least descent customer service, not even talking about exclusive, as the club states it’s really prestigious. When you read the company’s strategies, well-developed web page, you expect to have a good night and being treated special. However, it was not the case. I am going to spend my time in detail description of inappropriate staff behaviour so that people considering going to this club wouldn’t make the mistake me and my friends did.
First of all, the bouncers were really rude and the first impression just by trying to get in was really bad. We were invited to the private party and we were trying to call the guy that invited us just next to the club. The bouncers started screaming that we should move – we should either get in or out, taking into account that it was not busy after 12, and there were no people around and we were on nobody’s way.
Then, we encountered the cashier, who was normal but you would expect better service from her, as when you think entrance is 20 pounds. She clearly was interested only in taking the money as quickly as possible and getting rid of us.
Thirdly, we wanted to put our coats in the cloakroom. We decided to put on one hanger. When we realised the price was the same, we kindly asked to put on two hangers. To our surprise the guy was working there was very rude and arrogant. What we received was the accusations and unpleasant tone saying ‘Can’t you decide in the first place? You’re causing me trouble.’ And then he ignored us.. The question that arises here – ‘So this is your excellent customer service, Amika?’
At this stage the mood was already ruined and the night didn’t have any sparkle or excitement left. Anyway, we wanted to find our friends to so we could stay with them and have good time by forgetting all the unpleasant experience. There was no network in most parts of the club, but we found some connection next to the staircase leading to the exit. We started calling. And guess what happened, one of the rude bouncers approached us and shouted that we can’t stand there and can’t make any calls. Is it appropriate? I really have no idea what the staff thinks about themselves, but such disrespect is not forgivable nor accepted. He even wanted to kick us out just because of trying to make the call.
I have been travelling a lot and have been to best clubs around the globe ranging from Italy, Spain to Miami. But I was never treated like this. My night was never ruined like this by uneducated staff. Even the clubs which host A-list stars from Hollywood were incredibly polite, friendly and welcoming, trying to accommodate client’s needs.
What I have learnt from Amika in London, I will never going to go back there and I will make sure my friends, people who I know, my facebook contacts, people who will be reading reviews will never go there. Eventually, this type of service will lose all the clients and will remain as one of the emptiest clubs on High Street Kensington in London.
Amika staff, ‘what comes around, goes around’, I will bet your holidays or nights out will be ruined at some point in the future as you totally deserved it.
Unless you like girls who are more make-up and silicone than actual human being or boys with more fake tan than Katie Price DO NOT GO HERE! I’d never been to this club before and to be honest going there last Friday was an absolute waste of a Saturday night. The music was terrible, the club was too full to dance and everyone in there seemed more occupied with looking like a WAG or spotting a D-list celebrity than actually dancing and having a good time. Londoners, there are WAY better clubs that you could go to on a Saturday night –avoid this one like the plague!
Good night to be had here if you have Liberia's deficit in your sky rocket. Good vibe inside, the place is saturated in class from the moment you step in the door. Always someone in there you'd recognize.

I went to Amika last weekend and had a fab night! We booked a table and had excellent table service plus the music was awesome. The crowd were really friendly and there was a great atmosphere. The club is not that big but the decor and music more than make up for it.
I love Amika! The best night to go in Saturday night. Great atmosphere and music. I love the decor and the staff are really helpful. My friend went for her birthday and we got a table. We had a host to show us to our table and the waitress was lovely!
Beautiful club, black marble entrance so quite difficult to see where your walking especially if you’ve had a few to drink. Friendly doorstaff, we waited quite a while to get in so i’d recommend getting there early. Music was funky/electro house. Good crowd of people, mixture of ages and everyone seemed to just wanna have fun. Lots of dancing on sofas etc. I liked the decor of this place, very trendy! we bought some tequila shots at the bar which was £9.00 each, bit pricey but it was a big shot. Not that many cubilcles in the toilet so you may have to queue.
I really love Amika! Its a beautiful club with great music and a fun young crowd. The interior is stunning. You desend into a black marble entrance with crystal chandeliers. The main room follows this theme and has a large cage above the dancefloor which holds professional dancers later on in the evening. The second room is totally white and smaller with a different DJ spinning tunes. The Champagne room is small and inimate with luxe decor also. The music is pretty fun pop stuff but sometimes gets a bit heavier later on. Drinks are expensive as you would expect but wine is quite reasonable. The crowd is quite young and international and very attractive so make and effort to dress up! The door policy is rather erratic unfortunately so I would get there quite early to get in.
Friday nights at Amika is one th best nights out in London full stop. It’s as good as Aura on Friday nights a couple of year ago when that use to rock London. the decor is brilliant.. a real surprise seeing as the it use to be a dump of a bar called settle down. the music is second to none in London at the moment if you are into your house and dirty house. Only complaint is that the main room isn’t big enough and if you don’t have a table it may be a little cramped… but the music will make up for that without a shadow of a doubt.
To me, Amika is similar to a Jennifer Lopez club scene video. Rich, posh with a touch of super designer ghetto feel. What I liked about Amika was the eyecatching color combination and the effects in thesystem. Fun, loving people with an intention of having a good time hoping no fights will hold them back.
I think Amika is a place where people create fun memories with that extra touch that will keep your memory alive.
The club itself was a good club. It was nothing very special but it was a fun “get2gether” scenario.
Pro’s: Good music, fun crowd, reasonable entrance and bar prices.
Con’s: Not very interesting after the first visit.
