Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club In Atlantic City Officially Shuts Down
After seven years in business, the Atlantic City location of Jay-Z’s ever-popular 40/40 club has officially closed its doors. A spokesperson for the club recently confirmed the closing, stating that while the venue has had a good run, it has not been operational since October 2012 when the club was massively damaged during hurricane Sandy.
The 40/40 Club, an upscale sports bar, nightclub and restaurant in Atlantic City, has waved-in its last celebrity.
The $4 million, two-level facility co-owned by hip-hop superstar Jay-Z closed in October, said Cristin Bentz, assistant general manager for Tanger Outlets The Walk.
“Our leasing team is actively and diligently working to bring a great new tenant into the space. Stay tuned,” Bentz said.
Ron Berkowitz of Berk Communications in New York, the 40/40’s spokesman, said the club’s lease ended in October, the same month that Hurricane Sandy hit, causing tremendous water damage inside the club. The club has not been operational since then.
“There was a big hole in the roof as well,” Berkowitz said Wednesday. “With the end of the lease and with Sandy, we decided we had a great run, and it was time to move on.”
Between Hubby Hov and his blonde-haired boo-thang signing million-dollar deals every other month in addition to the opening of another 40/40 club at the Barclays Center last year, we somehow doubt he’ll miss this money,
