There is a new landmark in Shoreditch that looks like it has landed there from another dimension. Sitting along Willow Street, just off the ever-busy Great Eastern Street and in the art of London’s artistic quarter, the brand new Nobu Hotel Shoreditch is the brainchild of a remarkable team including Academy Award winning actor, Robert De Niro, film producer, Meir Teper, Australian businessman, James Packer, and of course Chef Nobu Matsuhisa.
 
Conceived as a fun-luxury experience destination, this huge steel-and-concrete building
designed by Ron Arad Architects and Ben Adams Architects to marry the raw creative energy of the location with Nobu’s values of simplicity houses a 143-bedroom hotel, a beautiful spa and a 240-cover bar and restaurant.
 
Giving back to the local area, Nobu Hotel Shoreditch will be opening its stunning pocket garden, creating a public space between the vibrant streets and the calmness of the hotel, offering an oasis in the heart of East London.
 
The rooms
Each of the guest rooms has been meticulously designed to embrace the property’s distinctive architecture with Japanese aesthetic subtleties. The suites overlooking the courtyard and pocket garden from their own private balconies are particularly luxurious. The largest suite is the exclusive Nobu Suite, featuring two private balconies with views across London’s iconic skyline, a dining area, a lounge, and a bathtub.
 
The restaurant
Known around the world, Nobu cuisine is an innovative interpretation of Japanese, Peruvian and other South American elements pioneered by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa and influenced by his years of studying Japanese cuisine in Tokyo and his extensive travels. The Nobu Shoreditch menu features many of Nobu’s timeless dishes, such as Black Cod Miso and Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeno, as well as plates inspired by the creativity and vibrancy of the local area. Reached via a grand staircase, the 240-seat restaurant is bathed in natural light from the five-metre tall glass doors leading out to the charming Nobu Terrace.
 
The spa
Focusing on the ideas of balance and mindfulness, the spa offers a range of relaxation, fitness, wellness and beauty services including Yoga classes, facials, massages and body treatments. Amenities include ‘his’ and ‘hers’ steam room facilities and private single or double treatment rooms.
