This week, the first-ever Nobu Hotel opened at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, the end result of the partnership of Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro, Meir Teper, Trevor Horwell and architect David Rockwell. And we have to say: We're pretty impressed. Here are a few photos of the hotel and of the opening festivities.
The hotel's 181 rooms and suites are made up of 117 King rooms, 46 Double Queen rooms and 18 suites that can be as large as 1,800 square feet. Bonus: All rooms have minibars filled by Chef Nobu himself. Guest amenities include VIP access to Nobu Caesars Palace restaurant (more on that in a minute), VIP access to Pure Nightclub, Nobu’s signature hot tea served complimentary in-room upon arrival, and tech touches like iPad registration, an iPad docking station and an exclusive Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace app.
Naturally, a hotel designed and named by a chef will have some pretty spectacular dining options. The Tai Dry Miso looks delicious...
...as does the Pork Belly Tonkatsu sandwich.
At the opening festivities, the whole creative team was on hand to show off their hard work. Here is Chef Nobu with Executive Chef Thomas Buckley...
