Nobu Hotels to open Warsaw property in 2020
Nobu Hotels is set to open a property in Warsaw, Poland next year as part of its global expansion programme.
The hotel group – founded by Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro and Meir Teper – is currently on track to open 20 hotels by 2020 following the launch of its first property back in 2013.
Nobu Hotels Warsaw will be situated in the heart of the historic city, featuring 120 rooms, expansive meeting and event spaces, a fitness centre and, of course, a signature Nobu restaurant.
“As we enter 2019, this is our newest hotel in Europe and the start of an exciting future partnership,’ said Nobu Hotels’ CEO Trevor Horwell.
“We are truly proud to announce Nobu Hotel Warsaw to our growing Nobu Hotel and Restaurant family. This takes our hotel portfolio to 17 hotels underpinning our strategy to carve out our own niche whilst staying true to our brand and loyal Nobu customer.”
The upcoming opening marks Nobu Hotels’ first Polish property, slated to open its doors in the first half of 2020.
It will occupy a new building located in central Wilcza Street and is due to be designed collaboratively by Polish architectural firm Medusa Group and California-based Studio PCH. It will also encompass the existing Hotel Rialto.
“Nobu is a global brand, recognisable thanks to the passion of its founders, exceptional service and excellent cuisine. In combination with Polish openness and energy, we will create an exciting and unique place that will win the hearts of visiting guests,’ said Karolina Kaim, president of Tacit Investment.
“We are especially pleased that we will be able to offer our clients the most famous dishes of the Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, served in Nobu restaurants around the world and for years well known as the highest quality Asian cuisine.”
Nobu Hotels’ expansion programme also sees new openings in Barcelona, Los Cabos and Chicago scheduled for 2019, as well as the addition of 40 new rooms to its existing Marbella property.
