The Door Policy Was at the Heart of Studio 54’s Appeal: Exclusivity Is Only Half the Story
Apr 05, 2020 48 secs
If your name didn’t carry enough recognition, you had to be offering something worthwhile: what were you offering the club in return for your entry?  You had to dress the part and be the part. .

Yet, Studio 54 was not the only club that used exclusivity to boost its appeal, as such is a trick as old as time.

While Andy Warhol described the door as a dictatorship, one half of his quote remains: Studio 54 was a “democracy on the dancefloor.” In short, the group controlled the flow, and nothing — and no one — was off-limits.

Everyone was given the freedom to express, with the unspoken knowledge that the club was a sanctuary — a loud, bopping, drug-ridden, dance-crazed “safe space,” before those two words came to mean what they do today.  

The exclusivity at the door was largely in place to guarantee the inclusivity behind the gate —which was the energy that kept the club popping…until its very last day
