Jupiter restaurant part-owned by Michael Jordan to have private club

A $2,500 annual fee will get you into a private club on the top floor of 1000 North — the new Jupiter waterfront restaurant that is partly owned by NBA star Michael Jordan.

“Members who want to go upstairs to smoke cigars or have a drink after or before dinner can go out on the terrace. It’s going to be the best place for food and service in Palm Beach County,” said said Ira Fenton, a managing partner in the restaurant on the Loxahatchee River.

The 1,500-square-foot second floor for members and their guests only also will have a 450-square-foot outdoor patio for food and beverages. There will be occasional celebrity chefs. Valet boat docking for members will be available.

The first floor of the 340-seat restaurant, which also will have an indoor and outdoor bar, will be open to the public. A public dock is planned.

Other restaurants in the area that have private memberships are located in Jonathan’s Landing, the Loxahatchee Club and Lost Tree Village.

Demolition is complete of the former Charley’s Crab restaurant and construction of the new building could begin as soon as next week.

Opening of 1000 North is planned for the end of 2017, said Fenton, who added that the membership of the private club will be limited to about 250.

Jordan, a part-time Jupiter resident who has a home in the Bear’s Club off Donald Ross Road, is one of the 15 investors. Others include former New York Giants running back Tucker Frederickson, sportscaster Ahmad Rashad, local businessman Bjarne Borg and professional golfers Ernie Els, Dustin Johnson, Luke Donald and Rickie Fowler.

The new restaurant is to have about 8,700 square feet of indoor seating and about 2,900 square feet of outdoor seating.

Jordan joins Tiger Woods as the latest sports megastar with an eatery in Jupiter. The Woods, a restaurant in Harbourside Place, opened in the summer of 2015.

Indoor food and beverage sales at 1000 North will be required to close at 2 a.m. Outdoor food and alcohol sales would end at midnight. Outdoor live music would require a special-event permit from the town.

Plans include a connection with Riverwalk, the town’s 2.4-mile pedestrian/bicycle waterfront lane from Ocean Way to the Jupiter Inlet that goes through Harbourside Place and along the Intracoastal Waterway and Jupiter Inlet.

Currently, there are Michael Jordan Steak Houses in Chicago and New York.
