Nobu Hospitality plans new Nobu Hotel for London during Q1 2016

Nobu Hospitality announced plans to open a hotel in the London area of Shoreditch.

The hotel group, which is co-owned by celebrity chef and restaurateur Nobuyuki ‘Nobu’ Matsuhisa, actor Robert De Niro and film producer Meir Teper, announced the London hotel will be its entry into Europe and will open in the first quarter of 2016.

Construction has already started on the 156-room hotel, which is located at 10-50 Willow Street. Its design will be influenced by London but include Nobu’s signature ‘east meets west’ ethos, with Matsuhisa to develop its food and beverage concepts.

Facilities will include banqueting and meeting rooms and a fitness center.

Nobu Hospitality launched its first hotel in Las Vegas at Caesars Palace last year and has plans for more across the world.
