Jay-Z Revamping the 40/40 Club

Jay-Z and his business partner Juan Perez are renovating the 40/40 Club.  The New York sports club, which closed its doors on the first day of June, plans to re-open to the public with an updated look and even more lavish atmosphere.  Along with eye-catching new décor, the club will revamp its menu as well.  Jay-Z appointed his own personal chef Mike Shand as new executive chef and Shand plans to add a few of Jay-Z’s personal favorite dishes to spice up the daily menu options.

“The 40/40 Club’s makeover will draw inspiration from the energy, grandeur and opulence of New York City nightlife,” the co-owners wrote in a letter to their clients.  “We are eager to re-open our doors in September and re-introduce a revolution in luxury sports watching and nightclub experience.”

The New York location is the first of eight 40/40 clubs to open around the world, so naturally it’s the first to get a facelift.
