The Nobu Hotel Warsaw to be “an integrated mix of luxurious hotel and energised living spaces.”
Nobu Hospitality, the global luxury lifestyle brand founded by Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro and Meir Teper, announced its continued global expansion into Warsaw, Poland. According to the company, Nobu Hotels is on track for 20 hotels globally by 2020.
Warsaw is the cultural heart of Poland, and one of the country’s most dynamic cities. With a booming business community, Warsaw has been ranked as the 7th greatest emerging market in the world.
The new Nobu Hotel Warsaw will be situated in the heart of the historic city. With 120-rooms, expansive meeting and event spaces, fitness centre and signature Nobu Restaurant, this new project takes Nobu’s hotel portfolio to 17 hotels underpinning the luxury hospitality brand’s strategy to carve out its own niche whilst staying true to the brand and loyal Nobu customer.
Nobu Hotels’ first Polish property will open in the first half of next year and occupy a new building located at Wilcza Street (a street in Warsaw’s city centre), designed by the Polish architectural firm, Medusa Group, and will also encompass the existing Hotel Rialto. The design refurbishment will be a collaborative effort between Medusa Group and Californian-based, Studio PCH. The new building will see a transformative architectural design for Warsaw, blending with the original Rialto building.
“Nobu is a global brand, recognizable 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.”
