Nobu Hospitality LLC has announced plans for a new Nobu Hotel and Restaurant in Chicago. The new property will be in the west loop on the corner of Randolph and Preoria Streets, opening early 2016.
Inspired by Chef Nobu and championed by Robert De Niro and Hollywood producer Meir Teper, the Nobu Hotel will have 155 rooms, a Nobu Restaurant and a special indoor and outdoor bar, lounge and venue on the rooftop.
"Chicago's tourism industry continues to see record growth because renowned venues like Nobu are investing in expanding options for Chicagoans and tourists," said Mayor Rahm Emanuel. "This hotel and restaurant build on the city's great hospitality and culinary offerings to further cement Chicago's role as a world-class city."
“The City of Chicago is an extremely important destination for Nobu Hospitality and our shareholders Chef Nobu, Robert De Niro and Meir Teper. As one of the key global cities of the world, Chicago is already a magnate for business and leisure travellers offering unique venues for dining, entertainment and enjoyment, and we look forward to embracing the values, traditions and desires of the people of Chicago”, said Trevor Horwell, chief executive of Nobu Hospitality. “We also look forward to be working with the City of Chicago to deliver another unique and special destination for Chicago which reflects our overall growth strategy of expanding with other properties to 24-hour gateway cities, both in the U.S. and internationally.”
