Barclays Center won’t just be a sports arena; now it’ll have its own sports bar, as well.
Rapper, businessman and Barclays director Jay-Z will be bringing the 40/40 Club to the events center when it opens on September 28. The 9,000 square foot bar and restaurant will feature 36 TVs — including eight 80-inch screens hanging on the outside of the space — as well as views of the Brooklyn Nets basketball court and a custom illuminated amber resin bar top — one of several design details that will borrow from its flagship sister site in Manhattan.
“The 40/40 Club at Barclays Center will provide a dynamic environment to complement the experience of attending Brooklyn Nets games and other select events,” said Barclays Center and Brooklyn Nets CEO Brett Yormark. “The 40/40 Club will deliver the best in service and cuisine, while creating a vibe fitting for such a spectacularly designed venue.”
Brooklyn Nets All Access season ticket holders will be offered first access to reservations.
