New York's State Liquor Authority on Wednesday approved a liquor license for Barclays Center, permitting the arena to sell alcohol everywhere from an upper bowl hot dog stand to champagne bar within the venue's most exclusive confines, "the Vault."
During games, alcohol will be cut off in the arena after the third quarter but inside the exclusive clubs, it can be served for an hour after events finish, with a final cutoff of 1 a.m. The center, which features two Jay-Z' clubs, the 40/40 and the Armand de Brignac Champagne Bar, had been seeking permission to serve alcohol until as late as 2 a.m.
Meanwhile, word is that the Rolling Stones will play two shows at Barclays in November, along with two at London’s O2 Arena, to celebrate the band's 50th anniversary.
