Studio 54 Flashback

studio 54 ryan phillipeYou’re too young to remember the actual Studio 54 I’m sure, but you may have heard of it and wanted to know what was so special about it. Why does the name, no the legend, live on all these years later? What was Studio 54?

To understand it completely you have to travel back to April 16th 1977 and to put that into perspective: that was the year that first saw VISA on credit cards, rings were discovered around Uranus (I’m not joking), the first spacewalk took place and Sarah Michelle Gellar was only 12 days old. Meanwhile over on 254 W. 54th Street, New York, two friends, Steve Rubell and Ian Shrager opened their doors for the first time and thereby started the legend of Studio 54.

In simple terms it was a night club; but a glittering one. They had tried owning and running steakhouses in the city but soon decided that there was more money to be made in alcohol, hence the idea of a club. With Rubell’s drive he was always the loud and gregarious one, they bought and renovated the old TV studio, transformed it into the club, hung an illuminated man-in-the-moon over the dance floor and the rest, as they say is history.

Cher Books more Dress to Kill Tour Dates

10628375_828795377152875_8757655974866316733_nIt is a gay mans dream come true especially in a year that has been not that exciting on the concert front. You never know when Cher will decide it really is her final Farewell of her Farewell tour so you must see this live. Her outfits in the show you must see and you will cry in at least one part of the concert.

She has added Austin, Lubbock, Corpus Christi, Bossier, and Charleston to her tour with a TBA special guest. We can only hope for Cyndi Lauper. Maybe she could talk Robyn in to opening for her which would also be amazing!

New Year’s Eve Arson Attempt At Packed Gay Nightclub

neighboursclubdancersAccording to the Seattle Fire Department there is a suspect being sought in arson bar fire at Neighbours Nightclub a large gay club. On 1/1/2014, just shortly after midnight, an unknown suspect poured gasoline on a carpeted stairway leading to the second level of a bar and ignited it. The bar in the 1500 block of Broadway was occupied by over 750 patrons celebrating New Years Eve at the time. The fire was quickly discovered before it could spread beyond the stairway and was extinguished with a fire extinguisher. Someone pulled the fire alarm and caused the fire sprinkler system to activate. An orderly evacuation was accomplished and no one was injured. Arson Bomb Detectives (ABS) responded after being notified by SFD Fire Investigators. No suspect information available.

Another Fail for Las Vegas Gay Nightlife as “Freedom” Party ends at Marquee

MARQUEEIf you must call it “Freedom”. It was more like a jail cell during gay pride in Las Vegas this year when it was so packed into one confined dance level of the club. Maybe that is why the Freedom night has ended for one of the top money making clubs in the world. It was the only gay night but to open up a club of this size and not show us all of the goods? We are gay and size queens we do not wan to attend the hottest club in America and NOT see all that it has to offer. How dare they close off all the good rooms of the club. Not sad to see it go but it was something different to do on a Sunday night in Las Vegas. There is still Revolution Sundays which was just as good and the bartenders are just as bitchy with high priced drinks.

The closing of the Freedom party comes just after Krave Nightclub and Drink & Drag were denied their liquor licenses. Is Las Vegas nightlife for the gays disappearing or will their be another revolution? We need another Krave that was on the strip. Let’s hope someone buys that and does something amazing with it! Maybe Gypsy will re-open as a hot danceclub? Las Vegas used to be the worst gay city until Krave came along and change things but now that Murphy has screwed over the city of Las Vegas there will never be another Krave. Britney Spears may be doing a new show starting in December but Las Vegas (gay) nightlife is at an all time low.

Former Gipsy Nightclub Employees say Bar Rescue was a Sham!

gayoletimegipsyvegasBrandon Johnson the bartender who was fired and appeared bitchy on the Bar Rescue show on Gipsy nightclub’s redo in Las Vegas commented on Facebook that the show was a sham as you will see in the post image.

We have also found out that the Gay Ol Time signage was edited out of the final show of Bar Rescue. This was considered a slap in the face to the gay community with the unusually bright lighting behind the bar. It might be the same as posting “Black Ole Time” in a predominately african american nightclub.
