Nobu Hotel and Restaurant to Enter Chicago



The Nobu Hospitality Group will add the Nobu Hotel and Restaurant Chicago to its growing global Nobu Hotel collection.

Acclaimed lifestyle group Nobu Hospitality LLC is proud to announce plans for the development of the luxury boutique Nobu Hotel and Restaurant Chicago with a leading U.S. real estate development firm. The Nobu Hotel and Restaurant will be located in the vibrant area of the West Loop on the corner of Randolph and Preoria Streets and is planned to open early 2016.

Inspired by the world-renowned Japanese culinary genius Chef Nobu and championed by Academy award-winning actor Robert De Niro and Hollywood producer Meir Teper, the boutique Nobu Hotel will feature 155 luxury rooms, the Nobu Restaurant and a special indoor and outdoor bar. A lounge and venue on the rooftop will deliver a fusion of laid-back luxury, high-energy nightlife and exclusive guest room retreats.

The Nobu Hotel Chicago will join the rapidly expanding collection of Nobu Hotels which includes the highly successful Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace Las Vegas which was named as one of the Hottest New Hotels of 2013 by CNN. The Nobu Hotel collection includes other properties in development comprising the Nobu Hotel Eden Roc Miami Beach, the Nobu Hotel City of Dreams Manila, and the Nobu Hotel Riyadh amongst others in development. Nobu was recently named as the one of the world’s top 25 innovative luxury brands by Robb Report.

Shawn Sullivan, Partner and Studio Leader at the Rockwell Group, has been selected as the designer for the project to showcase a design reflecting the needs for all stakeholders and using the core DNA of the Nobu brand infused with an indigenous flair. The Rockwell Group has been the designer of many Nobu projects on a global scale over the last two decades.
