Nobu Hotel Chicago Readies For An Early 2020 Opening


Following The Hoxton in April, Nobu Hotel Chicago is one of the most anticipated hotel debuts in the city, set to open its doors in early 2020. A partnership between Japanese chef Nobu Matsuhisa and actor Robert De Niro, the hotel features an exterior that fuses old-world Japanese art, new-world utilitarian architecture and accessible sophistication–a perfect match among the West Loop vintage buildings that surround it. With local Modif Architecture as the architect of record and Studio K Creative handling design, the guest rooms boast a mix of dark and light that plays off the shadows, resulting in artful patterns and geometry in each space. Of course, Nobu wouldn’t be complete without an eponymous restaurant; the property will also have a stunning rooftop space and a sushi bar.
