As we recently reported, Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club will unveil its new restaurant, $10 million renovations and technological upgrades on Jan. 18. Some of the renovations, implemented by designer Jeffrey Beers, include a new amber lit bar top, an illuminated bottle display tower, leather wall installations, huge LED TV’s, new VIP lounges, oak wood floors and a new Broadway Grand Entrance.
The original reopening was scheduled for November, but the Brooklyn born rapper and expectant father wanted to make sure everything is perfect before he re-opens the doors. The overall vision is to capture the “energy, grandeur, and opulence of NYC nightlife.”
Executive Chef Juan Jara created a menu that will entice both the sports fan and the casual diner. The concept is Latin-Soul lounge food with dishes like “Southern-fried chicken strips, 40/40 mini club burgers served with signature 40/40 sauce, mouth-watering skewers, and a variety of tasty mini desserts including fried twinkies and mini strawberry shortcake biscuits.”
Hang in there; just a few more weeks.
