Don’t just spend any old night out on the town. Get out there and rub elbows with some of the worlds favorite stars. Here’s a list of some of the most popular celebrity owned nite spots in New York City.
40/40 Club owned by Jay-Z
6 W 25th St
Train: NR to 23rd St
Hours: Mon-Fri, 7pm-3am; Sat-Sun til 4am
The answer to the eternal question: where the ballers at? Jay-Z’s midtown sports club is the spot where players play… and watch big screens and pay for overpriced drinks. Oh, and they check out girls who roll though in their most scandalous gear, hoping for a glimpse of Marcy’s son. When she doesn’t find him, be sure to slip her your number. WARNING: There is a dress code. No sneakers, jerseys, Timberlands, or baseball caps. So break out your Roc-A-Wear button up and come chill at Hovi’s spot.
Jimmy’s Bronx Cafe City Island co-owned by Fat Joe
500 City Island Ave
Train: Take the 12 Bus to City Island
Hours: Sun-Wed, 11am-1am; Thurs-Sat, 11am-2am
This is by far the best Hispanic food you’ll ever have in New York City. This is not a yuppie place, so all y’all yuppie types go somewhere else. Rappers like Fat Joe and radio personality Angie Martinez hang out here all the time. The food is consistently good, and you will not be disappointed.
Michael Jordan’s Steak House
Grand Central Station, Upper Concourse, 23 Vanderbilt Ave
Train: 6 to Grand Central Station
Hours: Mon-Fri, 7am-10am, 12pm-2:45pm, 5pm-11pm; Sat 5pm-11pm; Sun 5pm-10pm
