Jay Z to open club at Atlanta airport

Jay Z's newest 40/40 Club opens in Atlanta on Wednesday, at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

We first starting reporting about this in 2011 -- check out this great photo of Jay discussing things with Mayor Kasim Reed! -- and the time has finally come.

Shawn Carter, as he is probably known on real estate documents, joins partner Juan Perez and the Delaware North Company for the "upscale sports bar" according to a release. It'll be located on Concourse D.

Some specs from 40/40:

"The 1,500 square foot space mirrors the design of the elite New York City 40/40 Club including big screen televisions throughout the restaurant and bar.  The menu includes many of the favorites from the NY club, including the 40/40 Signature Wings, Sliders, Empanadas, 40/40 Nachos and Red Velvet Cake. The 40/40 Club Atlanta will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Delaware North, a global hospitality company, and the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport will officially unveil the new 40/40 Club along with other new Concourse D concessions later this summer."

UPDATE: An aiport spokesman said the club is actually opening in phases. What's opening on Wednesday is an open, U-shaped bar area in the concourse. The full club, to be located upstairs with runway views, opens later this year. So, Jay Z probably won't be on hand this week, as no big grand-opening festivities are planned. If anything does come together for later in the year we're guessing his sister-in-law Solange Knowles might not be on the guest list.
