Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods have taken the wraps off T-Squared Social, an “eatertainment” complex featuring food, big-screen TVs, golf simulators and more in Midtown Manhattan. The project, developed in partnership with Nexus Luxury Collection (New Providence, The Bahamas) and 8AM Golf (New York), is in the lobby of the Emigrant Savings Bank at 7 E. 42nd St.

Tiger Woods a Nexus co-founder along with Timberlake, said “The idea for T-Squared Social came to us during a round of golf at Albany, our development in The Bahamas. Justin and I thought it would be cool to create a place that combines our favorite things and brings people together to just have a great time. We always knew we wanted to do something together, and NEXUS gave us the platform to bring our idea to life.”

Adds Timberlake: “We knew a concept like T-Squared Social would thrive in New York. It’s a beautiful space that transcends the typical sports bar experience. You can go to be entertained without sacrificing quality or comfort. We’re excited to be partnering with 8AM Golf on this incredible opportunity right in the heart of one of the greatest cities in the world.”

T -Squared Social – its name is a reference to the “T’s” in Tiger and Timberlake) – “redefines the multi-dimensional dining experience, merging elevated cuisine and craft cocktails with state-of-the-art Full Swing simulators for golf and other interactive gameplay, duckpin bowling, darts, and premium sports-watching with over 35 televisions including New York City’s largest flat-screen 200-inch television,” the partners said in a news release.

T-Squared Social sits within the lobby of one of the United States’ oldest banks, Emigrant Savings Bank, owned by Howard Milstein, an investor and golf entrepreneur who also owns 8AM Golf. With 24-foot open ceilings, 22,000-square-foot space was imagined by the New York design studio of ForrestPerkins (Dallas).

Inspired by upscale New York cocktail bars, a 32-foot green-tiled and marble bar anchors the restaurant. Additional dining and viewing areas include multiple low- and high-top tables; a variety of plush lounge areas; and reservations-only luxury “Box Seats” featuring 11 four-top tables in front of a 200-inch, high-definition screen. As a nod to the building’s banking heritage, a 12-seat “Vault” room is available for private dining and events.


Those involved say there are likely to be more T-Squares developed in the future, but that specifics on such a rollout have not yet been determined.
