Well here it is my take on the 54 and I quote Blonde Buddyï¿½ a great blend of everything New Yorkï¿½ï¿½.. NOT !!! It was 1:00 AM when I arrived, the door men were very nice and cute, they let me right in and comped me when I mentioned Blondebuddy and I didnï¿½t have to stand in the line of 6 waiting to get in. If I had to pay u wouldnï¿½t be reading this right now because I would have thrown myself in front of a train
The place was pretty crowded and I was not impressed with the interior design, which I found boring and put together without much thought. The music, well everyone was having a good time on the dance floor, but I thought there was too much Rap going on here.
The crowd, well if this isnï¿½t B & T then I donï¿½t like heels and makeup, I didnï¿½t see anyone who even resembles anyone who might of lived or hung out below 14th St. As far as gay clientele they must have been hidden in a closet and I was the only tranny gurl there. As far as a mix of models is concerned, I didnï¿½t see any nor did I see any decent wanna beï¿½s. However if there were any models there they must have not graduated from Barbizon as of yet, therefore still unidentifiable. I didnï¿½t feel uncomfortable though, however I was getting a lot of strange looks from the women which I thought was rather strange, usually itï¿½s the homophobic guys, but this was not the case.
Motherluvers will be bored sick with this place, I wonï¿½t be going back, Blonde Buddy should of read Bobby Millers book and hired him as a consultant, changed the name and found a decent promoter, then he might have had something.
To Blonde buddy here is my advice, first Thank you for the comp, keep on catering to the crowd I saw their u will do well. However, this club does not resemble the Studio 54 I knew except for the street name. You should change the name and leave Studio 54 to rest in peace. There was only one Studio 54 and thatï¿½s all their will ever be, everything else is just a cheap imitation.
