This past Saturday we hosted a Holiday Event for friends and family. Jameson supplied the whiskey and Blind Barber provided the haircuts. Needless to say, we had a great time and are happy to be surrounded with such talented people. However, despite drunken skateboarding and ball room dancing our parties are easily topped by the Holiday parties hosted at Studio 54, a popular New York nightclub who's reign lasted from 1977 to 1981.
Converted from a theater into a nightclub by Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager and designed by architect Scott Bromley, Studio 54 was the night spot of the famous in the late 70s. Their regulars list is something to behold, with names spanning from Salvador Dali to Andy Warhol, Mick Jagger to Michael Jackson, Calvin Klein to Tommy Hilfiger and John Travolta to Al Pacino.
At one of their legendary New Years parties, event planner Robert Isabell had four tons of glitter poured four inches thick over the floors of the nightclub. This was the place for outrageous and outlandish behavior. Tod Papageorge has compiled a book, named after the infamous nightspot, comprised of photographs captured at Studio 54. Some of the photographs are displayed above.
