Studio 54 Was Home to the Most Diverse Collection of Celebrities

Getting In

The entrance to Studio 54 was between 8th and Broadway, on (big surprise) 54th Street. The local was originally constructed as the Gallo Opera House, but the space functioned a casino for awhile, and then a theater house until 1942. That was when CBS took it over to make it a radio and television studio, naming it Studio 52. Then, in 1977 it became Studio 54. It would close for a year in 1980, but reopened in ’81 again as Studio 54 until 1986.
