Jay-Z's 40/40 Club Closed For Food Safety Violations Shortly After Reopening

Hov's New York City, New York club was shuttered just a day after its grand reopening.

Shortly after the reopening of his 40/40 Club in New York City, New York, Jay-Z is now dealing with the closure of his swanky sports bar.

According to NY Post (via HHW), Hov’s Big Apple franchise has been shut down due to food safety violations. The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene issued the bar with 69 violation points, with critical violations including workers not using proper utensils to eliminate bare hand contact with food, insufficient or no refrigerated or hot holding equipment and more.

“If you have a walk-in place with food like this, you put a hell of a lot of people at risk,” an anonymous source said. “A night of dinner and dancing should not include the risk of contracting food-borne illness.”

The 40/40 Club reopened the previous evening (Jan. 18th), with celebrities including Warren Buffett, Swizz Beatz and DJ Khaled appearing to support the event.

Note the violations below.

    This design is spectacular! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
