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 enjoyed this establishment. The variety of drinks….out of this world. I had the nuts and bolts…excellent. Baseline drink is good too! The music was good. A lot Jay Z and Beyonce playing. Prices are steep but what you expect. I enjoyed the food also.

    Amazing interior. It's simple and luxury at the same time. Love it. Speakers is great. I'd like to go there on Friday or Saturday when it turns to night club. Friendly wait stuff gave us a tour on all club and shown us all VIP rooms and explained all booking rules. That was nice of him. Great experience.

    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.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 7/20/2014
    I went there using a Travel Zoo voucher for 2 appetizers and 4 glasses of wine. Granted we went early, but it is this gigantic place with nary a soul (okay, maybe 6) in it. The sound system is great, the decor is professionally done, the bar counter is of this marble/plexi combination. But the place lacks something! It lacks the vibe of a place branded by Jayz. This place could have been branded by Georgie Porgy how boring it is. Sorry folks, my opinion.

    Atmosphere and music were good! When we were seated for our reservation the tables were dirty and had crumbs. I had to ask for them to be wiped. Our server wasn't very pleasant and rushed us along to finish so he could use the seating for another reservation and the place WAS NOT packed at all. We had originally planned to spend more time inside the venue and even agreed to move, but he was so anxious for us to finish he started setting up for the next reservation while we were still eating dessert... bringing over balloons and glasses to the tables where we were seated. We decided to leave.

    We were so looking forward to going to the 40/40 Club. Cool looking place, really good food, but that's where it stops. You either sit really high at bar table in seats with no backs or "living room" style, either way making eating dinner not very comfy. Plus the tables are so small & the plates so big, that they are literally hanging off the table waiting to fall. Then there was our server. My party was a bunch of drinkers, but we only had 3 drinks, cause we had to find her, flag her down & wait about 15-20 mins (not kidding) for our drinks. It took her 15 minutes to get boxes for our food. We even skipped dessert (and it was 2 people's bdays) because the service was that horrible. However, she did stay & hover for the check. Never again!

    My husband and I had a great time, we found coupons on Groupon. My first encounter by phone was good. I established a reservation..I then called to change the reservation to a later time. The lady was very nice-- changed it with no problem. As my husband and I arrived, we were greeted by a friendly young lady-- she showed us to where we'd be seated. It was a couch/table setup, which was fine with us. She proceeded to inform us of what our Groupon purchase included and the choices we had. We were pleased with all that came with the purchase- including 4 drinks from bar, appetizer, two entrees and a dessert. The food not only looked great but tasted delicious! Nice size portions as well!

    I had a 6pm reservation, so there wasn't a crowd. I was pleasantly surprised by the renovations that were done, the space looked nice with the layered levels. I had the perfect spot to watch the TVs, unfortunately, only sports highlights were showing. But it's nice to know that it would be great venue for watching sports.The hostess and servers were all pleasant and attentive. I only did appetizers which were all delicious and the portions were bigger than expected, which was nice plus.

    Wow..40/40 use to be a great place to go after work. They might need to reconsider their approach and start to cater to the after work crowd. Maybe include Happy Hour specials. I went here and the place was DEAD...this is the second time within the last 3 months it was dead during a time(World Cup) where a so called SPORTS lounge should have been jumping. Just a sad vibe and feel. I had a Living Social coupon so that was the only reason I came back...will be the last time.

    This sports bar is a great place to watch events, however for reasonable views come early or pay a lot of money. There was little expectation of the food, and the pricey offerings were far worse than expected. As for service, one could imagine a kitchen in chaos during a packed event.

    Don't bother making a reservation. They are not honored on nights when there is a big game playing. Waited for 2 hours to finally get a bar stool and mini table. Although the hostess was very apologetic, they might as well not take reservations to begin with

    I made reservation for 4 people. We get there and 15 minutes later the server told us that each of us had to order two drinks a piece and two appetizer. We ordered but we did not want two appetizer each person. Why was I not told this information when I called to make the reservation. Two of us were from Tennessee and the other two guest were from Houston. Although, there was a NBA basketball game on the screen we were not there for the game only. Two of the guest did not like basketball at all. The waiter was very rude and came back five times and said give me your ID because I will have to charge your chard for two appetizer and two drinks. We left the club before we anticipated on leaving.

    I booked a table at the 40/40 Club as we were in NY from London on holiday and we wanted to see the Mayweather fight. We were not informed when I made the reservation that they were charging an additional $200.00 a head on the night and this was sprung on us when we arrived at the door. This removed any choice we may have had on whether to go elsewhere. To add insult to injury, the table they finally gave us was unsatisfactory and not condusive to a comfortable meal, the menue was reduced to overpriced fingure food and the drinks were so poor we left. I have to say I expected more and its a shame as it looked like a nice venue.

A huge bball fan and this was the best place to watch the NCAA tournaments. TV screens everywhere. We even got a tour of tge place offered by our server. I was so impressed I'm considering renting a room for my 60th bday celebration in December if it's affordable. I think it will be though. We fell in love with this place. It's for ppl of all ages and professions. Good job JayZ! You won us over. Going back next month. Lol

    Dined on 3/8/2014
    I noted "celebrating husband's birthday" in my Open Table reservation. Upon arrival, we gave the hostess our name who immediately shouted "Happy Birthday". It would be unfitting to call our "guy" (Matt), a server. Our "guy" Matt, told us about the club, gave us a little tour (since it was not so crowded at the time). Made sure our glasses were never empty. 90% of our 5-Star rating is because of his excellent service. We ordered a bottle of cognac (can't remember the name). We also ordered the blackened salmon, which came with a small dish of lobster sauce. Was pretty good, could have used a bit of salt. But yummy. We were there for the experience and got much more than we could have expected. Music & ambiance was incredible.
