Jay Z’s 40/40 Club Closes in Atlantic City

It truly is last call for fans of Jay Z‘s 40/40 nightclub in Atlantic City.

After nearly 8 years the establishment, co-owned by the rap music mogul, has officially closed its doors.

There are reports from that the $4 million, two-level facility sustained damage following Hurricane Sandy. Those reports have since been denied by  Tanger Outlets. However, the club has remained closed since the storm.

Tanger Outlets The Walk’s Cristin Bentz assures Atlantic City nightlife fans that they are “working to bring a great new tenant into the space. Stay tuned.”

40/40 Club was a hub for celebrities visiting Atlantic City back when it opened in October of 2005.  Among the stars who helped christen the club were singer Beyonce, tennis player Serena Williams, actress Zoe Saldana, and former pro basketball player Magic Johnson. One-time Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver and reality star Terrell Owens held his 32nd birthday party there 3 months after the club opening, which was attended by about 20 of his fellow Eagles players.


Jeffrey Vasser, president of the Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority, was among the local officials who attended the grand opening:

“Back in those days, it did a lot for the Atlantic City brand in the sense that here you have Jay-Z opening what was just his second 40/40 Club outside of New York, and it just said a lot about what he thought and what his company thought about Atlantic City and its future, so it was a great message to other brands that this was the place to be,” Vasser said.


40/40 clubs in Manhattan and at the neighboring Barclay Center remain open.
