Famed Japanese chef, Nobu Matsuhisa, is set to open his first European hotel and restaurant in London.
Nobu Hotel Shoreditch in London is currently under construction and is projected to open in the first quarter of 2016.
The property is under a long-term management agreement between Nobu Hospitality and owner Willow Corp Sarl.
The hotel’s five storeys are fractured into angular, concrete balconies. A landscaped garden at the site’s eastern edge will lead to a restaurant and bar space.
Details of the restaurant and forthcoming fit-out plans were not given.
Nobu Hospitality CEO Trevor Horwell said: “The Nobu Hotel Shoreditch in London is our first European hotel joining our growing portfolio collection of hotels covering select locations in the Americas, Middle East and Asia.”
The 156-room hotel at 10-50 Willow Street in East London will offer exclusive menus developed by chef Nobu.
