For all the curious foodies, new details are available on the eagerly anticipated Nobu Hotel. Famed Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro and designer David Rockwell were on hand at the original Nobu in New York City
this week to provide guests with sneak peek at the first Nobu Hotel, set to open in Las Vegas late 2012. Guest bookings are set to begin October 1.
Nobu’s first hotel project is part of Caesar's Palace but David Rockwell and his firm Rockwell Group have designed the space so that there is a clear transition to the Nobu Hotel, which has a minimalist Japanese style. The calming and tranquil space will feature wood tiles that extend through the elevator foyer and into the cabins. Hallways will feature patterned carpets meant to reflect elements of cherry blossoms and Japanese Zen gardens along with pleated wall coverings and custom fixtures inspired by origami.
