Photos From The Jay-Z and Beyonce Fundraiser for President Obama at the 40/40 Club
Nix the flags and the podium. Cue the opulent 18-foot tower of gold-bottled French champagne.
When President Obama addressed an elite roster of hipsters and multimillionaires, including hosts Beyoncé and Jay-Z, in New York last night, he did so next to a custom-designed tower of $800-per-bottle champagne that dominates the main room at Jay-Z’s 40/40 nightclub.
The 350-bottle champagne tower — designed by Jeffrey Beers — is a monument to Jay-Z’s favorite bubbly, Armand de Brignac, which is known colloquially by rappers, clubgoers and connoisseurs as Ace of Spades because of its gold-spade label.
“It’s floor-to-ceiling gold bottles in the entire space. It’s beautiful — breathtaking,” a rep for the Flatiron District hot spot told The Post. “It’s the first thing you see when you walk in.”
