Second Nobu hotel to open in London

The Nobu Hotel London Portman Square is set to open in early 2020 in the city’s West End, joining its sister hotel in Shoreditch (pictured).

Nobu Hospitality, the lifestyle brand founded by Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro and Meir Teper, has signed a hotel management agreement which will see it rebrand the Radisson Blu Portman Square, also formerly the Portman InterContinental.

The hotel will have 239 bedrooms and suites, reduced from its current 272, as well as a Nobu restaurant, ballroom and meeting facilities. David Collins Studio and Make Architects are overseeing the project.

The group operates the Shoreditch Nobu hotel, which opened in 2017, and two standalone Nobu restaurants, both in Mayfair: Nobu at the Como Metropolitan hotel in Old Park Lane, which opened in 1997, followed by a site on Berkeley Street eight years later.

Nobu Hotel London Portman Square is owned by London + Regional Hotels and is their third collaboration with Nobu Hospitality including Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay and Nobu Restaurant Monte Carlo.

London + Regional is also the owner of Iconic Luxury Hotels, which comprises Chewton Glen, Cliveden House and the Lygon Arms, as well as a wider collection of independent hotels and portfolio of 48 Holiday Inn Express properties.

Trevor Horwell, chief executive of Nobu Hospitality, said: “We are truly proud to announce the launch of Nobu Hotel London Portman Square, with our trusted partners, London + Regional Hotels. This will be our third Nobu destination together with London + Regional Hotels and sets another stage for creating memorable experiences around food and hospitality.”
