In 1933 it became the Casino de Paris, a nightclub run by Billy Rose. WPA took over in 1937. CBS acquired the space in 1942, used it as a studio, and sold it in 1972. The new owners opened a disco, Studio 54, making headlines for the celebrities in attendance as well as the embezzlement scandal that forced them to sell it in 1980.
