So who can pull off making a grand entrance into a packed nightclub atop a white horse dazzling spectators? Legendary Damon, that’s who (eat your heart out Bianca Jagger). Last Sunday, NYC belonged to “the King of New York nightlife” as he celebrated his birthday with all the grandiose fabulosity that he has become recognized for.
Known for his lavish birthday soirees, Damon didn’t disappoint this year as he paid homage to one of the most iconic clubs in Manhattan’s history – Studio 54. The Marquee, located at 289 10th Avenue, was decked out in silver, reminiscent of the famed hot spot, complete with various old school album covers on the tables of the VIP section and the smiling half moon (minus the spoon filled with snow). Cocktails were being knocked back courtesy of Remy Martin V, and may I add they were extremely scrumptious.
Like the legendary club created by Steve Rubell, the A-List, philistines and everyone in between mingled in harmony as DJs Jimmy the Gent, Charlie Brown, Goldfinger, Kiss and MOS spinned an array of classics and hip-hop bringing the club to a frenzy. Among the celebrities toasting with the famed stylist and promoter were Chef Roblé, Karen Gravano of the hit VH1 show “Mob Wives”, UK R&B diva Estelle and Roc Nation’s Bridget Kelly, both of whom serenaded Legendary Damon.
All and all it is a fete that won’t be forgotten soon. Swankier and more fierce than last year, Legendary Damon knows how to put the swagger back into NYC clubbing. The countdown is on until next year; I can’t wait to see what he will pull out of his fashionable chapeau.
FAMERS, take a gander at the video that preceded his entrance into the club.
