Looks like Jay-Z won’t be holding any summertime bashes at his famed 40/40 Club in Manhattan. Instead, he’s opting for bigger and better things come fall. The hip-hop mogul, along with his partners in the nightclub Desiree and Juan Perez, announced a $10 million gut renovation of the 6 West 25th Street location, set to begin June 1. The club will remain closed through the renovation, and the owners hope to reopen sometime in September. As The Real Deal previously reported, Jay-Z and his partners moved the club’s offices out of the club and into a separate location at 255 West 36th Street — the renovation will transform the former office space into another private area for the club’s patrons, one of five planned exclusive lounge rooms. The 40/40 Club will also have an illuminated amber resin bar top, illuminated bottle display tower, enlarged marble stepped arena-style seating with plush lounge banquettes and a new second floor catwalk. This follows November’s announcement that 40/40 Club is partnering with Delaware North Companies to open locations in 20 U.S. airports, and speculation that new branded clubs could be opening internationally.
