Studio 54 founder: “I never saw Donald Trump dance… He was a serious guy.”

As Studio 54 was a major hotspot during the late 70s and 80s in
NYC, it’s common knowledge that many celebrities would frequent
the venue for a night out. Now the Studio 54 founder Ian
Schrager has revealed more about what it was like during the
club’s heyday and addressed some of its patrons, including the
current US President Donald Trump.

Last year news spread that Donald Trump attended parties at Studio 54
on numerous occasions, but apparently “he was never on the
dancefloor.” Schrager recently spoke to the Guardian to provide even more
insight, stating that he was definitely not at the venue to
dance like the other celebrities:

“Over the next few years, every celebrity or big shot came to
Studio 54. But nobody pestered anyone for an autograph, so they
could be themselves. Andy Warhol was shy and just liked to
watch. Mick Jagger was the same as he was on stage and Diana
Ross was an amazing dancer. I never saw Donald Trump dance,
though. He was a serious guy.”

Schrager also goes into more detail about the legendary venue,
mentioning the “controversial” door policy and dumping four
tons of glitter on the dancefloor. Plus club manager Michael
Overington also revealed more to the Guardian. Read
