Halloween at Studio 54 Was Insane From the Late 1970s and 1980s

Halloween revelers at New York's Studio 54 dance the night away in costumes ranging from burlesque to stellar.

The original Studio 54 nightclub, which opened on this date in 1977, was open for less than three years before owners Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager were prosecuted for tax evasion. But 33 months was more than enough time for a dazzling array of hedonistic shenanigans. The club opened again under new management in 1981, and while the new owners also had wild events that attracted a plethora of A-list celebrities, the vibe just wasn’t the same.
