Jay-Z is bringing his posh 40/40 Club to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, the new home of the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets.
The rap mogul and restaurateur, who also has an ownership stake in the team and is on the arena’s board of directors, announced Friday that the 9,000-square-foot, 350-seat third location of the trendy ultra sports bar will open with the rest of the arena on September 28th.
The newest 40/40 Club will be comparable to its pair of predecessors in amenities and will only be open when the arena is hosting events. It will not be accessible by the general public, though; only to those with tickets to the event being held in the arena, according to the New York Post. However, while the club will be located on the suite level, prospective patrons do not have to have tickets for one of Barclays’ more than 100 luxury suites. Ticketholders from any part of the 18,000-seat venue are welcomed.
It is unknown whether the new location will be equipped with the high-tech Powermat technology like the Manhattan flagship.
The Barclays Center 40/40 Club follows in the footsteps of the aforementioned 12,000-square-foot flagship location opened in 2003, and the 15,000-square-foot Atlantic City location opened in 2005. In 2010, Jay-Z and partners Juan and Desiree Perez reached a deal with Delaware North Companies Travel Hospitality Services to bring the club to as many as 20 airports throughout the U.S.
