Nobu reveals Warsaw plans

Nobu Hospitality has revealed the next step in its global expansion with the planned 2020 opening of Nobu Hotel Warsaw.

Situated at the heart of the city within a newbuild on Wilcza Street, the structure is being designed by Polish architectural firm Medusa Group whilst interiors are a collaborative effort with Californian-based Studio PCH. Encompassing the existing Hotel Rialto, the process will seek to both integrate and reimagine the property for what is billed as a transformative architectural design.

“As we enter 2019, this is our newest hotel in Europe and the start of an exciting future partnership,” comments Trevor Horwell, CEO of Nobu Hotels. “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.”

Comprising 120 guestrooms along with expansive meeting and event spaces, a fitness centre and a signature Nobu restaurant, the hotel will take the form of a combination of accomodation and activated living space. The announcement follows Warsaw’s promotion from emerging to developed market by FTSE Russell.

Karolina Kaim, President, Tacit Investment, adds: “In combination with Polish openness and energy, we will create an exciting and unique place that will win the hearts of visiting guests. We are especially pleased that we will be able to offer our clients the most famous dishes of the Nobu Matsuhisa, served in Nobu restaurants around the world and for years well known as the highest quality Asian cuisine.”
