About 40/40 Club
The 40/40 CLUB, an all-American sports bar and lounge owned by hip hop mogul Jay-Z and partner Juan Perez, opened its doors to the public on June 18, 2003. Created by the longtime friends, the club is 12,000 square feet of pure sports and entertainment in an opulent lounge setting that combines the lavish warmth of a New York City penthouse with the vivacity and glamour of court-side seats at a championship game.
The decor is a mix of memorabilia from this country’s greatest games coupled with Manhattan sophistication. The “Hall of Fame” connects the main floor with the upstairs VIP rooms and houses autographed jerseys donated by various celebrities.
Space & Features
The multi-level space includes a custom 20’ x 20’ illuminated resin top bar encircling an 18-foot tall illuminated champagne tower. Supple leather upholstered wall paneling, custom walnut millwork with smoked bronze mirrors, and plush lounge banquets make the space feel luxurious. A large marble stepped arena style seating area can accommodate guests with a wonderful view of the 4 165in state-of-the-art video walls. A new second floor ‘catwalk’ allows guests to circumnavigate the ‘scene’, and relax at the semi private second floor mezzanine bar and seating area. The space also includes over 30 55in flat screen monitors and a one-of-a-kind jersey hall of fame featuring the 40/40 club members.
