Philippe Starck nightclub, 1984

“The Starck club in Dallas was designed by Philippe Starck, owned by a group of investors led by Blake Woodall. (Stevie Nicks was an investor. She performed opening night, as did Grace Jones.) In 1985 became notorious for rampant Ecstasy use.”

Grace Jones

“Allen Ginsberg in the unisex bathroom”

“The infamous bathroom stalls at STARCK. Stalls came complete with your private SONY television monitor, that would shut off automatically when not in use. All push button toilets, as seen on this photo, and light sensory faucets were a first for a private club at the time.”
