    Studio 54 was perhaps the most famous disco of the ere. Did any of you ever actually get in? What was your experience?

    With a few friends I stood in line but was not allowed inside. We were told to try Icecapades where we had an incredible time.

    It was the best nightclub of its day and I've been to many in major cities in Europe. Best attraction was the floating bridge which rolled upstage and downstage over the dance floor. You could throw confetti over the side onto the dance floor. Music and light show was incredible. Vertical light fixtures would descend on occasion and open up like flowers, spinning and revolving around. I still have their matchbooks and heart-shaped sponges from one of their valentine's parties they gave out that you could also throw from the bridge. I remember dressing up as a punk rocker one Halloween and having to get patted down by security. Phenomenal hustle dancers and everyone was friendly. I was so young at the time but back then the drinking age was 18 and you had a no photo license. I would go very early with older cousins and be first few on line. We would always get in. Many, many fond memories... icon_cool.gif

    Yeah... I was too young to experience the club...

    But I can say that as a horny 18 year old, watching Ryan Phillipe in the "54" movie, all shirtless and sexy... my right hand was kept very VERY busy.

    Of course I was too young for that. Besides it was a "mixed" club which is something I had little interest in. I have been to "mixed" clubs in the past and it is too confusing. I have been to "Saint at Large" parties a couple of times. Not to change the subject but anyone been to the original Saint? That was suppose to be the big gay club of the era.

    I went to both Studio 54 in New York and its predecessor in Boston, 15 Lansdowne in the 1970s while they were run by Steve Robelle and company. 15 Landsdowne was exclusively gay. In both places, there were lots of interesting guests and everyone was accessible, except the music was so loud not much conversation ever took place. The music, lighting, special effects and shirtless men present were a dazzling spectacle.

    Not long ago, I jumped in a time machine and went back. It was awesome to relive the days of 54.....young, hung and 19 on the floor with super short babe blue gym shorts that shimmered with delight.

    I got more!

    Never went, but my s.o. did - many times back in the day. He and his friends knew somebody at the door (or somebody who ran the place) and they always got in. I think he said there were certain nights they went that were better than others. I didn't know him then and I missed the whole scene, but we had some great places in San Francisco that were comparable. I have a ton of good memories of those times.
