A week after the club opened, co-owner Steve Rubell agreed to host a lavish party to celebrate the 32nd birthday of Bianca Jagger .She made her entrance on a white horse, generating scads of publicity and envy among celebrities. From then on, Studio 54 was the place to see and be seen.

No one was prouder of Studio 54's huge success than co-owner Steve Rubell (right), who, with his business partner Ian Schrager, had previously run a disco way out in un-hip Queens. But that pride may have been his downfall: In 1979, Rubell raised suspicions when he boasted in the media that only the Mafia pulled in more money than his new club. The police raided Studio 54 soon afterward, and, based on evidence pointing to a money-skimming scheme, Rubell and Schrager were convicted in 1980 on charges of tax evasion and obstruction of justice. They were sentenced to three and a half years in prison, but got those terms greatly reduced by giving up information about other cash-skimming club owners. As a result of all the problems, Studio 54 closed in February 1980, with a party called "The End of Modern-Day Gomorrah".
