Mark Fleischman with Denise Chatman and Mimi Fleischman at Marina City Club

Marina City Club | 4333 Admiralty Way | Marina Del Rey, CA 90292

Inside Studio 54 is a tour by the former owner from behind the scenes of the infamous club, through the crowd to a place where celebrities, friends, and the beautiful people sip champagne and share lines of cocaine using rolled up $100 bills. 

In the early '80s, Mark Fleischman reopened Studio 54, the world’s most famous and notorious nightclub, after it was closed down by the State of New York. 10,000 people showed up that night, ready to re-start the party that abruptly ended after the raid in 1978, landing the former owners in jail. Inside Studio 54 takes you to the happening scenes of the 1960s, '70s, and '80s, the post-Pill, pre-AIDS era of free love, consequence-free sex, and a seemingly endless party.

Mark Fleischman bought Studio 54 when its original owners went to prison for tax evasion. He successfully ran the club until late 1984. He and his wife Mimi are the owners of four Bar Method Exercise Studios in Los Angeles.
