Jay-Z will bring his swank 40/40 Club to his hometown of Brooklyn, with a new location set to open inside of the Barclays Center in September.
The 9,000 square-foot bar and restaurant will be located on the Barclays Brownstone Suite Level, and will include the same custom illuminated amber resin bar top as it’s flagship location in Manhattan.
“There is no better home for another 40/40 Club location than the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn,” said Jay-Z, in a statement. “The 40/40 Club has revolutionized restaurants in a way I anticipate Barclays Center to transform the arena watching experience.”
The 40/40 Club in the Barclays Center will feature 36 televisions and views of the basketball court, say arena officials.
“The 40/40 Club at Barclays Center will provide a dynamic environment to complement the experience of attending Brooklyn Nets games and other select events,” said Barclays Center and Brooklyn Nets CEO Brett Yormark. “The 40/40 Club will deliver the best in service and cuisine, while creating a vibe fitting for such a spectacularly designed venue.”
