Jay Z put his businessman face on to attend the Grand reopening of his 40/40 sports bar in NYC last night. Celebs such as billionaire Warren Buffet (pictured with Jigga), Ashanti, rapper Wale, producer Rico Love and others attended. The bar was closed last year for renovations because business was so slow. Jay Z hopes the bar's new facelift will inject life into the place.

The dapper Jay Z turned heads when he pulled up to the club with a mystery LSLH woman. Beyonce's surrogate, perhaps?

Ashanti was overdressed like she was attending the Academy Awards rather than the reopening of a sports bar.

Reality TV personalities Erica Mena, left, and her manager Rich Dollaz looked like a couple of lovebirds.

C.C. Sabathia attended with his loyal wife Amber Sabathia, who sticks by her husband's side despite the rumors of infidelity.

D.C. rapper Wale looked unkempt and lost as usual
