Event description

Description

Studio 54 is a New York City Broadway theater and former discothèque. The disco opened on April 26, 1977 and closed in March 1986 and briefly reopened in 1994 after a multi-million dollar renovation.

Studio 54 was the epicenter of 70s hedonism--a place that not only redefined the nightclub, but also came to symbolize an entire era. Its co-owners, Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell, two friends from Brooklyn, seemed to come out of nowhere to suddenly preside over a new kind of New York society.

In 1977 STUDIO 54 has opened it's doors. It took only six weeks to transform the theater into a nightclub and cost $400,000. Rubell and Schrager hired Scott Bromley as architect, Ron Doud as interior designer and Brian Thompson as lighting designer. Jules Fisher and Paul Marantz, two well-known lighting designers, created the dance floor environment and created moveable theatrical sets and lights using the copious existing TV lighting circuits and fly system, which allowed for a dynamic, constantly-changing, environment. Where formerly all clubs had been very dark, at Studio 54 the crowd could be lit brightly.

The venue opened at the peak of the disco era and boomed in a time of decadence, glamour and hedonism.

Come join us in our new loft space for a night of DISCO fun - remembering the good times of Studio 54.
