According to an official release from Press of Atlantic City, the doors of Jay Z 40/40 in Atlantic City have closed for good! The $4 million, two-level facility co-owned by hip-hop superstar Jay-Z closed in October, said Cristin Bentz, assistant general manager for Tanger Outlets The Walk.
“Our leasing team is actively and diligently working to bring a great new tenant into the space. Stay tuned,” Bentz said.
Davis, 36, of Atlantic City, said celebrities still showed up then. He saw Jay-Z, Beyonce, rapper Lil Wayne, and rapper and current “American Idol” judge Nicki Minaj during his one-year residency, but he said crowds decreased after a video was uploaded to YouTube showing several 40/40 security guards allegedly punching and kicking two patrons outside the club in 2009.
“When it first opened, it would be crowded every night. For the first four years, it was crowded every night,” Davis said. “They would do good parties on Friday and Saturday nights. Fridays might have been a little slow, but Saturdays always had a nice crowd in there.”
