18 Celebrity and Special Moments From Studio 54!

 From the 16th of April, 1977, huge crowds of hopeful celebrators would flock to the new club opened on 54th street, New York City - Studio 54. This club was so famed (and infamous) for its great celebrations and celebrity magnet spot that it is still well remembered now, 40 years after it was opened. 

The height of Studio 54 was between 1977-1980 until its owners were prosecuted for tax evasion and sold it. Today it is mostly held as a nostalgic historical spot and a Mecca for celebrators who want to feel like the 70s are back.  The club was well known for the use of drugs and the promiscuity of its guests. We've managed to put our hands on 18 unforgettable photos from the club's heyday.
