Nobu Hotel Las Vegas

The rumor mill has been swirling for a year, and now it’s official: Nobu will be landing in Chicago with a boutique hotel and restaurant on the corner of Randolph and Peoria streets. Slated to open in 2016, the Nobu Chicago will have a "special indoor and outdoor bar" and a rooftop lounge. A Nobu restaurant alone would be reason to check out the property, and the rooftop venue will no doubt lure the city’s in-crowd to a happening scene.

The Chicago hotel scene is on fire, with the 2013 arrival of the design-driven Langham Hotel, and the Soho House, Godfrey, and Virgin hotels planned for 2014. According to the press release issued by Nobu Hospitality LLC, the property will have 155 rooms, “set to deliver a fusion of laid-back luxury, high-energy nightlife and exclusive guest room retreats.”
