Looking for serenity? You can find it in Shoreditch. The latest venture from culinary powerhouse Nobu opened this summer in the heart of London’s artistic quarter. Nobu Hotel Shoreditch is the first European hotel from the world’s most recognised Japanese restaurant brand, known for its innovative new style cuisine, hip crowd and celebrity following. It offers a dynamic blend of Nobu’s signature east-meets-west philosophy and Shoreditch’s creative and industrial energy.
WHAT IS IT?
In a nutshell; quirky design meets contemporary dining in the land of luxury. Nobu Hotel Shoreditch is also giving back to the area with a stunning pocket garden. The public space sits between the vibrant streets and the calmness of the hotel, delivering an oasis in the hectic heart of East London.
The distinctive design of Nobu Hotel Shoreditch marks it as one of East London’s most interesting sights. But it’s what’s inside that really counts. With 143 guest rooms and seven suites, the hotel offers a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of one of the city’s most culturally significant districts. The guest rooms exude refined, relaxed sophistication and each boast walk-in rain showers and all the amenities a modern-day traveller could possibly wish for.

Known around the world, Nobu cuisine is an innovative fusion of Japanese, Peruvian and other South American elements.
