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 courtside seats at a championship game. The “Hall of Fame” connects the main floor with the upstairs VIP rooms and houses autographed jerseys donated by various sports celebrities. The jerseys hang museum style, as well as decorate points of the lounges along with other sports memorabilia, such as the autographed gloves from the 1974 “Fight of the Century”: Ali vs. Frazier and the WWF championship belt of Kurt Angle. A new second floor ‘catwalk’ allows guests to circumnavigate the ‘scene’, and relax at the semi private second floor mezzanine bar and seating area with a fully equipped luxurious bespoke lounge seating encircling a custom billiard table.
Guests will be enticed by the upscale traditional American sports bar cuisine, done with a twist. Current menu selections include traditional Buffalo wings, our famous 40/40 club sliders served with our own signature 40/40 sauce, mouth-watering sandwiches and salads, as well as a variety of entrée items and a mix of tasty mini desserts including house-made Bannoffe pie & our warm Pineapple Upside down cake.
