Studio 54 will be revived for one night only right here in Santa Fe, as SITE Santa Fe pays homage to the historic disco-era New York nightclub with its New Year’s Eve dance party. The contemporary art center will transform itself with a disco ball, lounge, dancers and more. Music will be provided by local DJs Eldon and Melanie Moore. The evening also includes a Studio 54 costume contest. Guests are encouraged to wear their best disco attire or come dressed as a specific Studio 54 regular – Andy Warhol, or maybe Bianca Jagger? A full bar will be available until 1 a.m. and there will be catering from Opuntia Cafe. Admission is available for guests ages 21 and over.
Tickets are $55, or $45 for SITE Santa Fe or AMP Concerts members, at holdmyticket.com. Tickets can also be purchased by phone 505-886-1251. The party starts at 9 p.m. tomorrow at SITE, 1606 Paseo de Peralta.
