Nocturnal Admissions takes a timely, non-conventional look at one of Pop Culture’s most outwardly glamorous, yet misunderstood industries, bringing the reader backstage to experience nightlife as few have seen it. Wearing the multiple hats of ringmaster, entrepreneur, guidance counselor, million-dollar deal maker and dance music pioneer, Steve reveals that the key to survival lies not with being the ruthless conqueror of this winner-take-all ‘World at Night’, but the ability to keep it all in perspective, apply lessons learned and never loose one’s sense of humor along the way.
“As a nocturnal power broker, Steve Adelman knows the ins and outs of classic NYC nightlife, and he also knows his way around the art of telling about it all. His book is like a comp bottle of champagne served in a VIP room.”
—Michael Musto, Village Voice
“Steve Adelman knows nightlife. His customers might not remember much, but Adelman does. In Nocturnal Admissions, he takes us on a youthful adventure into the depths of dancing and drugging and hooking up—without ever losing his sense of wonder.”
—Richard Johnson, New York Daily News
“For three decades Adelman has been a nightlife innovator at the highest level. Whether it be mega-clubs in NYC or dance clubs in Boston and Hollywood, he has set the trend for others to follow. Nocturnal Admissions goes behind the scenes into his world and feels like a funhouse where you can’t help but anticipate what’s around the corner.”
—Jodi Goodman, president, Live Nation Entertainment, Northern California
