In Studio 54 people weren’t just dancing, there was also a group of them participating in orgies, drinking, and doing drugs. The club closed its door for the first time in 1980 when the owners of the club were arrested for skimming $2.5 million. The nightclub closed with one final party called “The End of Modern-day Gomorrah,” on February 4, 1980. Diana Ross, Ryan O’Neal, Mariel Hemingway, Jocelyn Wildenstein, Richard Gere, Gia Carangi, Jack Nicholson, Reggie Jackson, and Sylvester Stallone were among the guests that night. In 2010, Studio 54 is now called The Roundabout Theatre Company, where you can enjoy musicals and some other special events. Check out the video below, I have uploaded an amazing documentary that reveals all about it.
If I were Doctor Who I would use the travel machine to go directly to Studio 54. I think there`ll never be another nightclub like it. Today things have changed a lot, there are too many laws and rules that limit individual freedom. Perhaps, in those times, wild parties were the fashion, and all the celebrities wanted to go there.
That’s why it became a popular place that made history internationally. Studio 54 opened its doors on April 26, 1977, it was located at 254 West 54th Street in Manhattan, New York City. At that time, not everyone could enter the club, Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager became widely known for hand-selecting guests. Only famous artists, celebrities, and common beautiful people were allowed to enter. The best thing about this place was, of course, D.I.S.C.O. music.
