Jones Speaks Out Against STUDIO 54′s ‘Reputation’.

By on 12 July, 2010

Singer Grace Jones has spoken in defense of the infamous New York City nightclub STUDIO 54, insisting “moderation” was always practised by its patrons.

The eccentric former Bond girl was a regular fixture of the 1970s hotspot, which became known for sexual activity and rampant drug use that occurred after hours. But Jones maintains the discotheque was a far more civilised place than its notorious reputation suggests.

Speaking to Alan Carr on his talkshow, she said:

“It wasn’t as bad as they say – it was cool. It was cool in the sense (that) there was moderation, believe it or not. That way you could have conversation. You know, you didn’t go home with your dress kind of torn off of you like I’ve done a few times (elsewhere). Mick Jagger, everybody was there, Liz Taylor, everybody. Every night they had a different theme.”

For her more wilder nights out, Jones headed over to the Paradise Garage (a gay bar in the Big Apple) – because venue bosses allegedly provided partygoers with drugs instead of serving liquor.

She adds:

“At the Garage, there was a big bowl of whatever concoction they had there. The Garage was the club that opened at four, with a blend of juices or something and they used to spike it with acid and stuff. Because actually they didn’t have a liquor licence so you know, hey let’s put acid inside!”

Grace, you’ll always be my favourite!
