Nobu Hotel Shoreditch set to open this weekend

You could be forgiven for mistaking the 150-room Nobu Hotel in Shoreditch for an art gallery. The exterior is a design masterpiece, with frayed steel, glass and timber edges extending out onto thumpingly cool Great Eastern Street. Shoreditch, a district of London made famous by artists like Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin, now overflows with jazzy restaurants and tech start-ups.

The 100-seater Lobby Bar melds Shoreditch chic with Japanese aesthetic: cozy textiles like denim and twill are set in relief by slate bricks. Dark hues are accented by flashes of gold, and textured walls are a riff on the brand’s Eastern roots. Breakfast is definitely the most important meal of the day at the whopping 240-seater Nobu restaurant—the largest of three in London.

You’ll be flying out of bed in the morning to get your green tea and white chocolate croissants and signature Matsuhisa eggs benedict with shisho mayo. There’s even a matcha and smoked maple ponzu spin on the traditional fried chicken and waffles. Classics on the main menu often fuse Japanese and South American flavours. Try the tuna jalapeño mini taco for a taste of Chef Matsuhisa’s signature style–it’s a little shot of crunchy happiness. And the seemingly innocuous baby spinach salad with dry miso is high up there on the list of Nobu’s greatest umami hits.
