40/40 Closed Renovations, After months of renovation, Jay-Z’s 40/40 club in New York opened its doors for a private party on January 18th, 2012. The event attracted a swarm of media crews as it was the first public of appearance of Jay-Z since the birth of his and Beyonce’s daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.
Hov dropped $10 million into the renovations of the baseball-themed sports bar to outfit the club with state-of-the-art technology and a new restaurant. The club now features massive 165-inch Samsung flat screens which are visible throughout the bar and high-quality leather seating. A private room named after the rapper is loaded with sports memorabilia which is on loan from A-Rod and filled with bottles of Hov’s favorite Armand de Brignac champagne.
The interior has been redecorated in a predominately gold-colored theme complete with golden bats lining the walls. “I wanted to retain the feel of a clubhouse, a relaxed place to interact with friends,” Jay-Z told the New York Daily News.
Although Beyonce was originally scheduled to make an appearance, the new mother apparently stayed home to look after Blue. A host of celebrities did manage to make the opening including Spike Lee, Ashanti, Warren Buffet, Russell Simmons, and ?uestlove. The celebrity crowd mingled with a number Yankees players as well as Nets coach Avery Johnson. “I’m just coming to hang out with Jay-Z. It’s been a long time since I’ve been to 40/40,” Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia told the New York Daily News.
Jay-Z was congratulated by an adoring crowd as he arrived at the club and walked down the red carpet. Although the rapper had to tear himself away from his newborn daughter to make the opening, he apparently spent the evening showing off pictures of Blue which he had stored on his BlackBerry.
