I don't ever do reviews anywhere but I specifically made a TripAdvisor account just so I could do a review on this venue because it was THAT brilliant! <3

We visited Africana Famous Club on 5th July, which was a Wednesday, it really was one of the best nights my friends and I had had in Europe. Upon arriving at the front doors, we were greeted by three friendly staff members who handed us a club card and explained that the card records our drink purchases and the bill accumulated on the cards would be paid for when we exit. They also informed us that we would incur a €100 bill if we were to lose the card.
We then went up an elevator and were lead in to the club. Once inside the club, we were in absolute awe at how beautiful the club was! It was everything that we had seen in pictures, in the weeks leading up to this visit and SO much more! The club is literally INSIDE a cave with the walls and roof of the club still kept as the inside of a cave. The place is dimly lit with multicoloured lighting which adds to the exciting, warm and welcoming ambiance. The white interior as well as the assortment of features on the walls, contribute to the overall stunning and polished look of the club. There is also a seating area away from the dance floor that overlooks the sea. The view is breathtaking and unlike other clubs, you don't need to be on a VIP list to sit in this quieter section, near the water.
The bartenders and other staff were very polite, and spoke good English. We jokingly told one of the workers that we were feeling a little hungry/peckish and instantly, he came back with two complimentary bowls of dry finger foods, we were so surprised and grateful for this kind service. The club cards given to us made it a very relaxed, easy-going fun and seamless night, as we didn't have to pull out cash and coins every time we ordered a drink. I found it made my experience more convenient. The drinks were reasonably priced.
Additionally, unlike other clubs, the owner of this club makes himself very available to cater for the needs of the patrons and is open to listening to any feed back, as well as answering any questions.
In the few hours I was at the club, I would have only sat down for a few minutes due to the excellent range of music that was played through out the night. The club was packed by 1:30 am and the atmosphere was one of great excitement! We had a seamless transition out of the club as we handed our cards in and settled our bills at the end of the night.
It was an unforgettable night and we made some excellent memories!
Although we only had a few nights left in Italy, we returned once again since we had such a great night the first time. We were pleased to visit the club again and experience a quieter night. The atmosphere was still great and we again had an amazing night, drinking, dancing, socialising (meeting people from across the globe, as well as some friendly locals) and enjoying the shisha service provided by the club, all inside a beautiful cave next to breathtaking sea side views.
My friends and I would definitely recommend this club and will surely revisit next year when we return to Italy. We took so many photos and videos at this venue, but we really didn't need to because none of us will forget what an amazing time we had.

Thank you for the memories, Africana Famous Club!

Love,
From Sydney, Australia x

If you are on holiday in Amalfi coast, you must go to africana famous club. It's a disco in a cave in front of the sea. Music is fine but location is wonderful!!!

This club is a beautiful venue. We visited on a Monday night in July and perhaps that was the problem. Even the staff told us that was their quietest night. They were incredibly attentive (although we were one of only two couples there). The cocktails were fantastic (although usual high club prices) and the music was good. We would definitely have went again if we had been staying in praiano longer.

My wife and I heard mixed reviews about your spot, but being the avid explorer's we are, we decided to ignore the bad ones and luckily we did :)

We had an absolutely wonderful experience at the Hed Kandi party last night, the music was awesome and the venue tip top.

We did however arrive a little too early at 11pm, but to our surprise your friendly staff didn't charge us an entrance fee and gave us a place to sit while the club filled up.

I would highly recommend this club to anyone visiting the Amalfi Coast

Warmest regards,
Ty
