What can we say about Studio 54? Nothing really, because unfortunately we were not there to witness its glory, its glamorous people and its ecstatic atmosphere.

The most famous New York nightclub of the late 70s and early 80s is known for its party atmosphere. Celebrities, art people and Hollywood stars were its frequent regulars, with names like Andy Warhol, Mick Jagger, Grace Jones and Michael Jackson being among its fans.

Below we’ve gathered a collection of photos from a night at Studio 54, as found in vintag.
