As the owner of legendary hotspots like Limelight, Tunnel, Palladium, and Club USA, Peter Gatien was the undisputed king of the 1990s New York City club scene.

Then years of legal battles and police pressure--spearheaded by Mayor Giuliani's determined crackdown on nightlife in the mid-'90s--led to Gatien's eventual deportation to Canada and to the shuttering of his glitzy kingdom.
