There has never been - and there never will be - another nightclub that can rival the glamour, energy and wild creativity of Studio 54. Now, in the first official book on the legendary club, co-owner Ian Schrager presents a spectacular volume packed with star photos and personal stories of the greatest party of all time.
From its opening in 1977, Studio 54 celebrated spectacle and promised an endless parade of anything and everything. Although it existed for only three years, it served as a catalyst that brought together some of the most famous and creative people in the world. It quickly became known for its celebrity guest list and its uniquely chic clientele. From its state-of-the-art lighting to its elaborate sets, it was the beginning of the nightclub as a performing art.
Now Studio 54 explores this cultural zeitgeist and gives us Schrager's personal first-hand account of what it was like to set up and run the most famous nightclub of our time. With hundreds of photographs, many never before seen, of the celebrities and beautiful people and captivating stories and quotes from such cultural luminaries as Liza Minelli, David Geffen, Brooke Shields, Pat Cleveland and Diane von Furstenberg, this exciting book captures the wild energy and glittering creativity of the era.
Ian Schrager is an entrepreneur, hotelier and real estate developer dedicated to creating boutique hotels. He gained fame as co-owner and co-founder, with Steve Rubell, of nightclub Studio 54 in 1977 and then the Palladium in 1985.
