Instead of velvet ropes keeping people out, the club seemed to do everything they could to pack patrons in, apparently by hosting very mainstream events and giveaways.

It looks like anyone and their guest who could pay the $8-$12 gained entry.

The club closed for good in 1991, long after its cache was over.

These party invites are part of the digital collection of the Museum of the City of New York.
