Nobu Hotel Shoreditch, the first European hotel from the internationally-renowned Nobu Hotels brand, is slated to open in June.
The hotel’s 143 guest rooms and seven suites offer a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of one of the city’s most culturally significant districts, as well as an iconic dining experience at the brand new Nobu Shoreditch restaurant.
The expressive design for the new Nobu Hotel Shoreditch is the result of the collective efforts of Ron Arad Architects and Ben Adams Architects. The original scheme, by Ron Arad Architects, features overhanging floor slabs and cantilevered steel beams forming a frayed edge to the east, where a landscaped garden is terraced to provide natural light to the restaurant space.
Ron Arad Architects left the project in 2013 and Ben Adams Architects were appointed in December 2013 to develop the design and complete the project.
The interior of the hotel, meanwhile, was designed by local designers, Studio Mica, while the 240-seat restaurant was designed by Studio PCH. All parties worked in collaboration to create a seamless transition between the hotel and the restaurant.
Inspired by the iconic Nobu aesthetics, the 340 square metre restaurant space’s sleek wooden finish creates a cool and contemporary environment.
Perfect for open air dining, the terrace, which can entertain up to 80 people, is split into four level terraces and available for private functions. Guests can also take advantage of the semi-private dining space overlooking the custom-built, open kitchen.
Hosting up to 18 people, this is the perfect spot from which to experience the theatre of the Nobu kitchen. Behind the Nobu Shoreditch bar, an eclectic collection of vintage sakes, limited edition Japanese whiskies and rare champagnes are displayed for the discerning drinker.
The separate Lobby Bar on the ground floor is also available to both guests and the public, offering an easy-going atmosphere radiating comfort and warmth. Alongside a range of delicate Nobu dishes and award-winning cocktails from Nobu hotels around the world, the Lobby Bar provides a sophisticated retreat in which to socialise, relax or watch the world go by.
Balance and mindfulness is the focus of the Nobu Hotel Shoreditch spa and wellness area, offering a range of relaxation, wellness and beauty services that rejuvenate, revitalise and reenergise. The 24-hour fitness centre offers state of the art facilities for guests, including a personal trainer on request, complimentary water and towels, a stretching area and weights.
