A Nobu Café is now open in the lobby lounge of the Nobu Hotel Shoreditch, which was featured in the January + February issue of Boutique Design magazine. The café’s design showcases a curated collection of timbers, dark-toned stone and heavily woven textiles in natural hues. Shades of ai-zom blue are juxtaposed against robust surfaces of patinated metal throughout.
Project participants say as the “lifestyle space” of the hotel, the cafe serves both guests and the public, seating 100 people. It features an eclectic café menu with a matcha bar, London’s only Kinto hand-brew Japanese filter-coffee and a Nobu-style afternoon tea.
The Nobu brand’s co-founders Robert De Niro, Nobu Matsuhisa and Meir Teper were honored as Boutique Design’s 2018 Up-and-Coming Hoteliers at Boutique Design West (BDwest) this past month in Los Angeles and were profiled in the April issue of the magazine.
