Believe it or not, I am fascinated with the crazy parties that went on there! As far as history goes, Studio 54 was a notable disco in the 70s and early 80s. Few know that it originally was a New York City Broadway theater, then a CBS radio and television studio. But as soon as the 1970s came along, it became a busy discothèque (the place to be found: Manhattan). The club opened on April 26, 1977 and closed in March 1986. After the music went quite, the alcohol bottles thrown out...in 1998 it became a venue for the Roundabout Theatre Company. All the craziness that went down there, also had a huge influence on the fashion scene. This also because of the very popular crowd that used to party there. The VIP list is just incredible! I won't name anyone, except for a very popular character and party animal at Studio54: Andy Warhol! That's why, this is the way I'll end this post:
It's the place where my prediction from the sixties finally came true: "In the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes." I'm bored with that line. I never use it anymore. My new line is, "In fifteen minutes everybody will be famous."Now, go and party!!!
