Nobu Heads to West End
David Collins Studio, Make Architects to design
Nobu Hospitality, the lifestyle brand founded by Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro and Meir Teper, will launch a London West End hotel in 2020. The 239-room London Portman Square, Nobu restaurant, ballroom and meeting facilities, are being conceptualized by London-based architecture and interior design firm David Collins Studio in partnership with Make Architects.
The hotel is owned by London + Regional Hotels, and it’s the third collaboration with Nobu Hospitality after Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay and Nobu Restaurant Monte Carlo. The property will be set in Portman Square W1, near Mayfair’s restaurants, independent boutiques and theatres in the heart of London’s West End.
“We are truly proud to announce the launch of Nobu Hotel London Portman Square, with our trusted partners, London + Regional Hotels. 2019 is an exciting year of Nobu Hotel openings - from Barcelona, Los Cabos, to Chicago,” says Trevor Horwell, ceo of Nobu Hospitality.
The first Nobu Hotel opened in 2013 as a boutique hotel within Caesars Palace Las Vegas; Nobu Hotel City of Dreams Manila opened in 2014; Nobu Hotel Miami Beach in 2016; Nobu Ryokan Malibu, Nobu Hotel London Shoreditch, Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay and Nobu Hotel Palo Alto opened in 2017; Nobu Hotel Marbella opened in 2018; and Nobu Hotel Los Cabos recently opened in 2019.
