According to Disco-Disco:
Even though Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager's Studio 54 empire only lasted for 33 months it was an orgy in music, money, glamour and drugs. There was endless number of unforgettable parties and all the "right" people was there. Drinking, dancing, drugs, disco and complete decadence.
