A word from 40/40 Club
The 40/40 CLUB, an all-American sports bar and lounge owned by hip hop mogul Jay Z and business partners, opened its doors to the public on June 18, 2003. The club is 12,000 square feet of pure sports and entertainment in an opulent lounge setting that combines the lavish warmth of a New York City penthouse with the vivacity and glamour of court side seats at a championship game.

The recent $10 million dollar renovation and expansion of The 40/40 Club draws inspiration from the grandeur and opulence of New York City nightlife.


The 40/40 Club is open Monday through Sunday from 5pm-4am. Most major credit cards accepted.

    I came in on a Sunday night, during Sunday night football and to my surprise this place was totally empty. there were about 4 other tables with people and that it. So there was a bunch of staff just standing around. With all this time on their hands I thought they would be able to deliver great service...I soon found that was not the case. I ordered chicken nachos and 40/40 wings and a couple of drinks. There was one special request...just one. The person I was with asked for extra tomatoes. That is all..and he emphasized it, I really like tomatoes so go heavy on them, no problem if there is a charge just let me know. When she arrived with the tomatoes we had to search the plate to even find tomatoes. My friend asked about he request her exact response was "I requested them to the kitchen, Sorry" and she walked away. We thought maybe she was on her way to the kitchen but no she never returned. Wow! Her lack of concern was very obvious. She never returned to ask about our food, if everything was ok...nothing. We had to flag her down to get our check. Oh and did I mention the drinks were weak as heck! $15 dollar drinks that were extremely weak. So we get our check and my friend pays the tab with his credit card. I let her know that I planned to pay her tip in cash. It was funny because she wrote that the recommend 20% and 22% tips on the receipt. I gave her substantially less than that, and I left a note as to why and said Sorry (just as she did when we questioned her about not meeting our request) ...and then the craziest thing happened. She actually came back to the table to confront me about not giving her a 20% tip and preceded to tell me that at the 40/40 club they expect a 20% tip. I let her know that at the 40/40 or any where I spend my money to eat, I expect good service and she more than fell short. We continued to go back and forth...I thought I was being punked, NEVER AGAIN!

    We took a group of 16 year old boys to celebrate a b'day and the staff could not have been nicer and accommodating. They gave us a private room in the back and the boys played pool and had a great time. Had to be out by 11 though b/c it is a club and younger set not allowed after. Food perfect for everyone and good drink options.

    I booked a table for 15 expecting a good night out at a cool bar. We entered and mentioned only 8 of us were having dinner, the rest would arrive later but we needed a seating area for 15 as reserved. The manager seated us at a table for 6. She said she would reseat us when the rest of the party arrived. Never happened. We received a few more stools when everyone arrived in an area allocated for 6!! Food was salty and the waitress argued for a 20+% tip for the mediocre service. This place is a waste of time. We left shortly after to go to a more lively welcoming party.

    We had heard about the 40/40 Club so many times that it was time to pay a visit. It was relatively quiet as we only had time early on a weeknight. The ambiance is great. The food was delicious and had a nice variety of options. Service throughout the night was very attentive. Would recommend to a friend and will certainly return at a time when there is a decent sporting event going on to truly experience what the property can offer. Good times.

    Looking for some upscale resturants and sports bars, and the 40/40 Club kept showing up in the list, also checking out a place if suitable for first date and other meetings with a noise level moderate to hear your conversation. On a Monday evening at 6:00, this place fits the bill, though could tell it is a hot spot especially on the weekends. While the person that I was meeting could not make because they could not get off work, I still enjoyed the ambiance and food and the conversation with other patrons. If you come buy yourself, on a less busy night, you will get pull into a conversation and this makes the 40/40 Club a great social venue. This is from a reviewer who is not into bars or clubs. BTW had the Quesadillas and Southern Belle.

    Waitress didn't check on us until about 15 minutes after we sat down. Ordering was not very efficient as she could have stood to check back much more frequently. I don't know why the service was so poor as we had the entire restaurant practically to ourselves (maybe 15-20 other people in the place) and there were 3 or 4 waitresses just standing around. The crab/lobster cakes for an appetizer were delicious but besides that the food was fairly mediocre and way overpriced. Overall, we wouldn't go back. Bad service, poor atmosphere and overpriced food.

    Came in w/ a voucher they will overcharge you for tax and gratuity. Food wasn't that great under seasoned and dry wings, salmon. Drinks overpriced $15 you expect that in the city but the drinks were good and there was a large variety. So you're pretty much paying for the decor and ambiance of the place. Would not go there to eat ever again and with the other bars in the area I wouldn't go back for drinks either. The place itsself is nice but they are very rushed. I felt as soon as I put my spoon or napkin down someone was trying to take it away from me. If you are looking to watch a game it might be nice but I would never go back there. Shady management!

    Some of my younger coworkers and I wanted to take advantage of of our corporate perks that we get so we went on a Thursday night after work to watch baseball and football and have some beers/appetizers. There was a line at the door at 6:30 but we completely cut it because we had a reservation and were led past a crowded, busy, solid bar scene and up into a very comfortable and much more quiet back room with big screen TVs, a pool table and couches. We got a bucket of 12 beers and 6 appetizers and the waitress was great about recommending things to us. The food was solid and the bill came to $160 but with our corporate discount we only paid $18 each including tip. We had a good time - all of us said we'd do it again.

    Food and drinks were amazing, but it took hours to order and get! Not sure how to really rate the service since it was that poor. It would be one thing for the order to be placed wrong, or an item missing from the order but to have the waitress CONSTANTLY coming back to the table, asking us to refresh her memory on what we ordered got old fast.

    Would not seat my mother and I until the rest of my party arrived. I came from CA, I made reservations and still wasn't seated. After waiting and modifying my reservations we were seated. But no one came to serve us or bring us as much as a menu. I waved a waitress down. Finally after 3 servers come see if we've been helped, but never took our order, we get our food and drinks. I did enjoy my food. However I get back to California and I was charged twice for my meal. I called the the restaraunt to make them aware of my situation, they questioned me about my bill like I made a mistake. I know how much it was and I signed my receipt. They said some one would get back to me. I'm still waiting.

    This was my second time eating at 40/40. The first time was for lunch and we were the only ones in the restaurant/club. This time we went for dinner and it was very busy. Also, it was Thursday night football (football was back); so it was extremely crowded and busy. Before the game they played music while people mingled and ate at the bar and at the tables surrounding the club. The drinks were good as well as the appetizers that my party and I had.

    The hostess really seemed like she couldn't be bothered, and basically ignored me saying that I had a reservation (which is why it probably didn't register with Open Table. That aside, our experience was excellent. We decided to sit at the bar and our service from the bartender was EXCELLENT. He took his time in explaining our food choices and made great recommendations for us. The food was great! We loved the energetic "feel" and the music.

    I visited with my husband during a recent trip to New York. We were in a hurry to get in and out because we had a comedy show to make, so weren't able to really enjoy the sultry ambiance. It had a classy but modern vibe; a trendy place to watch sports on one of the many big screens then later party with friends. The food was decent, considering they serve bar-type food. We had chips with salsa & guacamole plus mac n' cheese to start. The hubby enjoyed the mac; the chips which were good. I ate a salad for dinner which was rather plain, and he ordered the short rib which was huge and beautiful! Unfortunately 3/4 of it was fat. He ate a few bites and that was it. Suggestion: go to watch a game & have special/unique drinks in a chic space.

    4 of us (consisting of 2 married couples, age 28-30) went to 40/40 on a Saturday night. The music was great from the moment we walked in, until the moment we walked out. We ordered a bunch of apps, a couple entrees and a couple salads; we enjoyed everything. The drinks, although on the pricey side ($15 per drink), do not disappoint; they are mixed to taste very good and they are not cheap with the alcohol. The ambiance is stylish, fun, sophisticated, yet laid back. I will definitely return everytime I visit New York.

    This place is amazing! The good was amazing , and the venue is very nice and high class! I love the stadium style seating towards the TVs and I love the co-ed bathrooms! The music was a little too loud at times where u can't keep a conversation but that's when you dine at night and it turns into a club! Got a great deal on groupon and saved 50% off my $143 Tab! Our waitress was so inviting and helpful. Besides the noise the only other downfall is u can't dine in certain areas unless you purchase a bottle :( but ambiance was great! I was lucky enough to find parking right in front and attire is semi casual! No jeans or sneakers.

    so wh en we first arrived at the 40 40 club who are seated in about 20 minutes later I was just came over to take her drink whatever no big deal and then when she came back she took our order for appetizer then approximately 45 minutes to an hour later you still have not receive our appetizer so we figured hey when we see the waitress we better put in order for entree due to the fact that we did not want to be there until 4 in the morning so when are we finally came to our table we ordered our entre and within 10 minutes for our entree came out. still no appetizer when it finally came out it was disgusting and very Fishy

    No dining tables so be prepared to eat off of cocktail tables and on your lap if not at bar. Great big screens with sports. We liked the hour when 80s music played. Food was great (Mac & cheese, collards, crab cakes, red velvet cake) EXCEPT for nacho chips. Drinks good but pricey.Server was very attentive. Nice and clean individual rest rooms.
