Rare Celebrity Photos From Studio 54’s Legendary, Hedonistic Heyday

You might have heard the wild stories that came out of Studio 54 from your parents, colleagues, or commentators on 70s culture. It was only open for two and a half years, but in that short time, it became one of the most exclusive clubs in the 70s.
