Studio 54 hustle

Once again, the rumors have proven true. Studio 54, the longest lasting nightclub venue in Las Vegas will close on January 8th, 2012.

Keeping with its "grand renovation" MGM will be replacing the aging nightclub with.... another nightclub!

Oh no where will the 20 tourists from the midwest who tip some guy on the strip $20 for VIP admission to studio 54 go now?

The only thing missing from this scene is a Cruise ship... and Gavin Macleod.

Wow. The and only time I went here was on my 21st birthday. It was reallllly good people watching.

I don't think it's possible for the MGM Grand to ever have a "hip" night club, the overall crowd is too large & mass-market there; Sure, they have great restaurants & do great business catering to high-rollers at the mansion & Skylofts, but overall the place is still the epitome of everything else that makes Vegas not "hip"...

I just wrote a blog the other day about how this Studio 54 stayed open longer than the original 33-month run of the original 54. The irony kills me.

It seems hard to believe that this place was opened in 1997. I can't seem to find any facts on that, just recent article references. That seems very early for the time period I remember the club scene starting. Although it's likely I'm just getting old and can't believe that it was that long ago I was in Vegas thinking wow, there's no nightlife here from a club perspective. (94 or 95)

Jinx73, I remember when Studio 54 opened. Must have been right after they got rid of the Wizard of Oz stuff. Have you ever checked this site? Scroll down for Studio 54:
