There has never been and will never be another nightclub to rival the sheer glamour, energy, and wild creativity that was Studio 54. Now, in the first official book on the legendary club, co-owner Ian Schrager presents a spectacular volume brimming with star-studded photographs and personal stories from the greatest party of all time. From the moment it opened in 1977, Studio 54 celebrated spectacle and promised a never-ending parade of anything goes. 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 uniquely chic clientele. From the cutting-edge lighting displays to its elaborate sets, it was the beginning of nightclub as performance art. Now, 'Studio 54' explores this cultural zeitgeist and gives us Schrager's personal firsthand account of what it was like to create and run the most famous nightclub of our age. With hundreds of photographs, many of which have never been seen before, of the celebrities and beautiful people and engaging stories and quotes from such cultural luminaries as Liza Minnelli, David Geffen, Brooke Shields, Pat Cleveland, and Diane von Furstenberg, this exciting volume depicts the wild energy and glittering creativity of the era. One of the most important cultural landmarks of the twentieth century, Studio 54 continues to inspire with its legendary glamour. This exhilarating volume is a must-have for style and fashion aficionados today.

A fun photographic look at the legendary club where disco and decadence ruled the New York City scene in the late 1970s. All kinds of photos and scrapbook pages help to capture a bit of what it must have been like to have been a part of this crazy scene, where whoever was anyone in pop culture at the moment seemed to find their way into the glittering glamour that was the world of Studio 54, and nobodies never made it past the iron curtain of the velvet rope. This book also serves as a nostalgic look at the celebrities of the day, your Mick Jaggers and Liza Minnellis, Kennedys, Brooke Shieldses and Michael Jacksons, and raises the question of how and why Bianca Jagger ever became famous for being famous. I am knocking off one star from my otherwise stellar rating because the book is so darn heavy it makes it hard to hold.
