Jay Z Opens New 40/40 Club at Atlanta’s Busiest Airport
Jay Z recently opened a new 40/40 Club at Atlanta’s busiest airport. The sports bar is located at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in Concourse D and is opened to ticketed passengers.
“We want to have the same type of feel as the regular 40/40 Club,” said Victoria Hong, a rep for Delaware North Companies, which co-owns the establishment with Jay Z. “It’s the airport version of the 40/40 Club.”
A VIP-only “scaled down” version of the 40/40 Club is also in the works. The 1,500 square-foot lounge will be on a different floor and is expected to open in the fall.
According to the Associated Press, this is the third 40/40 Club that Jay Z has opened along with two other New York locations in Manhattan and at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The rap mogul had clubs in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, N.J., but both closed.
40/40 was named after the rare feat among baseball players of hitting 40 home runs and stealing 40 bases in one season.
The 40/40 Club Atlanta will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu includes such delectable dishes as the 40/40 Signature Wings, Sliders, Empanadas, 40/40 Nachos and Red Velvet Cake.
