Jay-Z Reopens 40/40 Club

Two weeks ago, Jay-Z and Beyonce welcomed their daughter, Blue Ivy Carter into the world. This week? Jay-Z welcomes celebrities, super models, and billionaires into his new and improved club, 40/40.


This expansive, multi-level hot spot combines the relaxed atmosphere of a sports bar with the luxury of a Manhattan lounge. Guests can enjoy the latest Knicks game on any one of the 30 flat screen televisions. Or they can kick-back and admire the champagne tower in the center of the club, featuring $650 bottles of Ace of Spades champagne.


The guest list at 40/40’s grand reopening on January 19th included everyone from New York Knicks Mike Bibby and Tyson Chandler, super model Selita Ebanks, hip-hop artists Fabolous and Ashanti, Russell Simmons and (drumroll, please) Warren Buffet! Buffet, lusted billionaire and chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, was even seen throwing up the “Roc” (symbol for Jay-Z’s Roc-A-Fella Records).  If Jay-Z can get Wall Street to unwind, imagine how great the rest of the star-studded crowd was feeling? The pictures below can give us an idea:
