Last night, the 40/40 Club hosted a star-studded event to celebrate the 18-year anniversary of the club’s opening. The event saw talent from various sectors of music, entertainment and sports come together for a spectacular night of celebration, with a D’USSE tasting bar and specialty D’USSE cocktails.
In addition to Shawn “JAY-Z” Carter, attendees included the likes of Megan Thee Stallion, Meek Mill, Lil Uzi Vert, Van Jones, Swizz Beatz, Michael Rubin, J Balvin, Bobby Shmurda, Pusha-T, Fabolous, Busta Rhymes, Dave East, Belly, Benny The Butcher, Victor Cruz, Remy Ma, Shyne, Quincy, Dez Bryant, Kalan.FrFr, and Bobby Fishscale, among other leaders from the worlds of entertainment, sports and business.
Mr. Carter, Desiree Perez and Juan Perez originally co-founded and opened the 40/40 Club in New York City in 2003. The luxury sports bar and lounge’s 12,000 square space combine the lavish warmth of a New York City penthouse with the vivacity and glamour of court-side seats at a championship game.
The 40/40 Club recently reopened in early-August and the esteemed venue is in the process of filling 100 positions after hosting an open call for a combination of bartenders and food and beverage servers in late-July. Masks will be available for all attendees, upon request.
The 40/40 Club is named after one of baseball’s most prestigious achievements which recognizes players who hit 40 home runs and steal 40 bases in one season. Of all the Major League Baseball players in history, only Barry Bonds (1996), Alex Rodriguez (1998), Jose Canseco (1988), and Alfonso Soriano (2006) have accomplished the feat and the four jerseys of these athletes grace an area of the venue’s “Hall of Fame.”
