Studio 54

Reopens for One Night,

Old People Flock in Droves

10/19/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Everyone who was anyone hit Studio 54 in NYC last night for a special ONE NIGHT reopening of the club that defined the '70s ... athletes (retired), porn stars (retired), rockers (ok, still awesome).

With stars like Keith Richards, Susan Lucci and Clive Davis ... the only white stuff on the tables this time around was probably metamucil.

The event was sponsored by Sirius XM Radio -- and everyone who rolled in and out of the place told us the party kicked ass.

Check out the photos -- looked pretty fun.

Those "old people" could party you under the table. So why dont you snot nosed kids take your beer pong and special K and go jump off a pharmaceutical bridge.

There are very few times that one gets to relive their past, that is unless you are Shirley Maclaine. Let’s just say that last night was a reboot of my youth when I was one of the original club kids at Studio 54

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

What a time that must have been. Watch the "Behind the Music" do***entary (bots set up by the tmz idiots probably censored that) on Studio 54. Very cool. More of a communal feeling than now. And even disco sounds better than the obnoxious vaccuous 'house' crap that pukes out of the speakers of today's clubs.

Chase, you poor misguided child. "Old people" are having more fun than young people these days --- and have a hell of a lot more money!

Joke's on YOU.

Went there several times in the early 1980's. It was always a blast. Must have been a great night when it re-opened with a whole bunch of memories.

Disappointed in your coverage, TMZ. I know these pics don't represent patronage "back in the day". Lame.

Real funny sh*t on "old" people, tmz. But let me get this straight, Harvey is actually calling somebody else old? Really??? Now that is funny! By the way, Harv, those were the days when people actually had talent, unlike you and your bunch of slackers and the reality bunch you love.

Sick and tired    

Your metamucil joke and other pejorative references to older people are not funny; they're offensive, really.
