Studio 54, arguably the most famous club in the world, was located in New York City on, you guessed it, 54th street. It first opened its doors on April 16th, 1977 and stayed open for a short but eventful 33 months. In its first year alone, it managed to pull in approximately $7 million dollars!

Here, gazing adoringly at her husband here is Sasha Stallone. The Academy Award winner Sylvester 'Rocky' Stallone was enjoying a night out on the town with his wife when the couple decided to pay a visit to the nation's most popular disco club, Studio 54, on July 6, 1978. 

Just a year before this was taken, Stallone was nominated for two Academy Awards for Rocky, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Actor. This made him the third man in history to receive these two nominations for the same film, (after Charlie Chaplin and Orson Welles). Aside from his long-running role as Rocky Balboa, the actor/filmmaker is best known for his role as soldier John Rambo from the four Rambo films, released between 1982 and 2008.
