Jay Z has opened one of his 40/40 clubs at an airport in the US.

One of the music mogul's clubs is now located inside Hartsfield-Jackson International in Atlanta, which is the world's busiest airport.

Spokeswoman Victoria Hong of Jay Z partner Delaware North Companies said the sports bar portion of the rapper's club has opened for ticketed passengers.

Airport concessions director Paul Brown said there are plans to create a VIP lounge area of the club, separate from the sports bar on another floor. The lounge is expected to open later this year.

Jay Z opened his original 40/40 club in Manhattan with business partner Juan Perez in 2003.

The rapper has other 40/40 venues including one at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn, New York.

The name is borrowed from a baseball term used for players who have achieved the rare feat of recording 40 home runs and 40 stolen bases in a season.
