Retired rapper Jay-Z has decided to cash in the popularity of his 40/40 nightclub in New York, by doubling its size.

Bosses of the club are negotiating with the landlord, ADAMS + CO, to add 5,000 square feet to the main lounge and 3,000 for a second-floor VIP area.

Michael Jordan and Denzel Washington are among a host of celebrities who regularly visit the Manhattan hot-spot, which features white leather couches, chairs suspended from the ceiling and almost 30 televisions located around the entire club.

The club features a cigar room and two VIP rooms, which boast pool tables and PLAYSTATION 2 and XBOX games consoles.
