Nobu Hospitality recently began development of the Nobu Hotel in Chicago at a groundbreaking ceremony with partners chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Academy award-winner Robert De Niro, Hollywood producer Meir Teper, and Australian businessman James Packer.

Also in attendance were mayor Rahm Emanuel and Alderman Walter Burnett Jr., who showed their support of the project and offered their hands in the official first dig.

The Nobu Hotel Chicago, slated to open in late 2017, is located in the city's west loop at 854 West Randolph Street. The property will comprise 103 rooms and suites, a 10,000 square foot Nobu restaurant situated on the ground level, an indoor and outdoor bar opening on to Randolph's Restaurant Row and a 3,000 square foot, multi-use suite available for private social functions and meetings. There will also be an indoor pool, fitness center, spa treatment rooms and a rooftop indoor and outdoor bar and lounge.
