Partying the 1980s away at The Saint

October 27, 2008

Opened in 1980 in the same building that previously housed vaulted rock club the Fillmore East on Second Avenue and Sixth Street, The Saint featured a 5,000 square foot dance floor and planetarium-like dome.

It must have been something, because it’s one of those legendary places that 80s-era clubgoers are still raving about, even though the party has been over since 1988.

This 1986 ad appeared in the now-defunct neighborhood monthly¬†East Village Eye. A bank branch exists at The Saint’s location today.
