Jay Z’s Bellwether 40/40 Club Location Closes After 20 Years

Shawn Carter’s unblemished 40/40 Club location has closed its doors after twenty years of operation.

According to 40/40 Spokesperson Andrea Thomas, the club ceased its run at the end of July but has plans to reopen at a new location in 2024.

The club was established in 2003. 40/40’s flagship outlet was located in Manhattan’s Flatiron District and reigned as one of NYC’s hottest clubs at its peak. The success of the sports bar, lounge, and restaurant resulted in the opening of other 40/40 clubs across the country, including ones in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Atlanta, and Brooklyn at the Barclays Center.

In 2011, the New York location shut down for a $10 million renovation and reopened the following year. Before the most recent closing of the Manhattan address, the Las Vegas 40/40 sports lounge ended operations in 2008, with its Atlantic City venue following suit in 2013.

The 40/40 Club has been the ground of several high-profile occasions and gatherings over the years, with some of the hottest stars in showbiz and sports having stepped through its doors. In 2013, JAY-Z held a festive bash in celebration of the club’s 10th anniversary, with guests including Beyoncé, Fabolous, Maxwell, T.I., and more.

In 2015, JAY-Z declared openly the launch of 40/40 Live, which was hosted by WNBA star and Roc Nation client Skylar Diggins. In 2017, the magnate opened up the 40/40 Club’s Manhattan location for Disaster Relief For Puerto Rico, an invite-only fundraiser that raised money and garnered supplies for victims of Hurricane Maria.
