Studio 54 was the epicenter of 1970s extravagance and pleasure – a place that not only redefined the nightclub, but also came to symbolize an entire era. Co-owners Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell, two friends from Brooklyn, came seemingly out of nowhere to suddenly preside over a new kind of New York society, one that became a high-end sanctuary for flamboyance and self-expression. Now, 39 years after the velvet rope was first slung across the club’s hallowed threshold, Studio 54 tells the real story behind one of the most infamous clubs of all time.
