A Glimpse Into the Glory Days of Studio 54 Through Photos
From the ’70s to the early ’80s, Studio 54 was the place to be — if you were deemed worthy at the door, that is. This exclusive New York nightclub attracted the wildest of parties from across the globe. Every night, the place throbbed with music and pulsed with roving lights. Some of the top names of the time congregated at Studio 54 to have a good time. Ever wonder what went down past those doors? Read on for a tour of Studio 54 and some of its well-known patrons.
1. The Auspicious Beginning
Studio 54 wasn’t always a bustling hub of music, fun, and celebrities. In fact, since its opening in 1927, the venue had several different identities. It first began as Gallo Opera House, but that lasted only a couple years.
In 1942, CBS took over the building and made it the home of its radio and television studios. Here, many popular shows were born. If you’ve ever enjoyed an episode of “Captain Kangaroo“ or the game show “Beat the Clock“, you can be thankful for this little building — then named Studio 52 — on 54th Street. It wasn’t until 1977 that two men named Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager got hold of it and transformed it into the exclusive nightclub known as Studio 54.
