The Nobu Hotel London Portman Square opened its doors to the public.
This opening marks the third collaboration between L+R Hotels and Nobu Hospitality, following the launches of the Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay and the Nobu Restaurant Monte Carlo, but also the 13th hotel of the brand, founded by Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro and Meir Teper.
Located on the corner of Marylebone's Portman Square, the hotel has a Nobu restaurant and bar, with a terrace open all year round, as well as a fitness center and wellness facilities. A ballroom for 600 people will also be opened in 2021.
The Nobu Hotel London Portman Square takes a contemporary approach, drawing inspiration from Japanese architecture and minimalist design, while using a color palette influenced by Japanese heritage color combinations.
The new opening sees the Nobu Berkeley Street restaurant move to its new home in Marylebone. Continuing a legacy of 15 years of culinary experience, the Nobu restaurant at the Nobu London Portman Square Hotel brings a homemade approach to a brand-new space.
David Collins studio is responsible for the hotel's public spaces, including the lobby, lounge, bar and Nobu restaurant, as well as the outdoor terrace, ballroom, and conference rooms.

Upon entering the lobby, a high ceiling is marked by a sculpture created by the British sculptor, Ivan Black. In addition, suspended above the reception is a pendant cloud sculpture created by the famous freehand glassblower Jeremy Maxwell Wintrebert.
The rooms and suites of Make Architects have a character influenced by Japanese minimalist aesthetics. Guests can book a range of rooms and suites in seven distinct categories, some of which have terraces overlooking Portman Square.
