Shimmy Beach Club to host Studio 54 themed party!

2015-06-08 17:00

Cape Town - Shimmy Beach Club, voted Cape Town’s hottest club by Zomato, will host a Studio 54 themed party in the venue’s club on 15 June 2015, brought to you by Windermere Traditional Crafted Cider.

Studio 54, frequented by film stars and celebrities in the 70s, is considered to be the most famous club of all time.

Michael Jackson, Rod Stewart, Andy Warhol, Mick Jagger, Liza Minnelli, Dolly Parton, Diana Rossand and so many more were often seen entering and leaving its famous doors.

Visit Shimmy on 15 June to relive one of the most legendary nightclubs in the world - Shimmy is Cape Town’s favourite club and Studio 54 used to be New York’s best club!

The wild success of the club is said to be Studio 54's rule for a good party: Invite guests more interesting than you. The dress code was "Glamour only" and heightened the club’s signature experience.

Opened in 1977 for just 33 months, it made $7m in its first year. Bianca Jagger rode a white horse through the club on her 30th birthday and owner Steve Rubell once gave Andy Warhol a bin full of money for his birthday.


Venue: The Club at Shimmy Beach Club.

Date: 15 June 2015.

Time: Boogie from 9pm till late.

Theme: Inspired by Studio 54, come dressed in 1970's club glamour. Think sequins, glitter, big hair, glam. Prizes for the best dressed.

Cover charge: Entrance is free
