Celebrities Had Way More Fun Than We Thought At Studio 54!

Steve and Ian ended up spending a little under a year in prison. Their sentence ran from February 4th, 1980 to January 30th, 1981. After their release, they opened another nightclub that they named Palladium. 

Ian Schrager received quite a surprise in January of 2017 when he was one of 64 people who were all granted pardons from President Obama.

When asked why he applied for a pardon, even though he has served his time and business is going great, he said, “I wanted it for closure. I wanted it for my family.” 

He went on to elaborate,“It’s hard to be a good example for your kids when you did something like what I did, and you try to teach your kids to live by the rules and be an upstanding person.”
