Shoreditch was a smart choice for Nobu’s first European hotel—the area’s getting cooler by the minute and the hotel’s funky, spiky, ultra-modern architecture brings an edgy vibe to the neighborhood. Shoreditch still feels like you have to be “in the know,” though the cool crowd has definitely discovered it, and they’ve discovered Nobu as wel—not just the swank restaurant that anchors the property but the open-air bar in the back, too. Rooms here are unfussy and play up the Asian influence with wooden slats to cover the windows, furniture that’s low to the ground, and Japanese tea sets. It all feels very urban and new, down to the bathrooms which are tricked out with gold sinks. The restaurant is scene-y, of course, but what can you do? It’s Nobu.
In the Area
Shoreditch is heating up at a rapid rate, and Nobu isn’t the only chic hotel that’s set up shop here. There’s a growing number of cool bars and restaurants to check out, too, starting with Trapeze Bar, a circus-themed bi-level party palace where a snake charmer might wander past on you the dance floor at any moment. Tramshed, a former tram-generator building, now houses a chic chicken-and-steak restaurant from Mark Hix. The art on display here is always on point—keep an eye out for Damien Hirst’s “Cock ‘n’ Bull” installation. You can stop in at any time of day at The Book Club, a former warehouse turned café, restaurant, and exhibition space that the cool kids call home, especially at night when they host “Thinking and Drinking” events. If you decide to leave Shoreditch, the nearest tube station is a five-minute walk from the hotel.
How to Get There
Francesco's service was amazing.
He suggested always the best drinks for me and my friend without knowing our tasties , and he was very friendly and professional with us for all the service , we left the place very happy and we will come back for sure .
An architectural and culinary gem - a discreet oasis. A touch of Japan in the East End. We were lucky enough to stay one night in the Nobu suite, a very special, spacious and well-designed 'apartment', with with TWO balconies. My parents stayed four nights and had a superb time. The staff were wonderful from start to finish. They couldn't have been more helpful and made every effort to make our stay perfect. Lorena Tosso, Reservations Manager, was exemplary in her organisational and communication skills. Her attention to detail made our stay very special indeed and we are grateful to her. Michael at the front desk was also very helpful. Shoreditch is a vibrant, youthful and artistic area, very different to the West End - my parents, who are in their eighties, were treated with great respect and were made to feel very comfortable so they soaked up the Shoreditch vibe and enjoyed this alternative venue. Our tasting dinner in the restaurant was spectacular. The head sushi chef, Hideaki Mizushima, created wonders for our special evening meal. Each course was sublime and beautifully presented. Breakfast is a wonderful experience too, with a buffet and a la carte options too. One member of our party was Japanese and they very much appreciated the high standard of cuisine. We couldn't recommend Nobu Shoreditch more highly. We will definitely return.
One of the best nights since I’m in London. As soon as i came at the bar, Davide was on top on everything. He recommended me his cocktail, asian monkey i believe it was called, and it was so so so so so tasty.
I will come back for sure!
