Nobu Hotel's Only in Vegas Allure

Leave it to hospitality hub Las Vegas to introduce the world’s first Nobu Hotel by acclaimed celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa. With a bevy of successful restaurants (Robert De Niro is a partner) across the globe, this marks Matsuhisa’s first foray into the hotel industry.

Opened in early February, Nobu Hotel and its accompanying Nobu restaurant (the largest in the world at 12,775 feet) were designed by David Rockwell. The 181-room, 18-suite boutique hotel is attached to Caesars Palace—but it has a style all its own. Guest rooms evoke a modern, luxurious Japan-meets-Vegas vibe, with calligraphy art adorning the walls, natural material accents, décor, and furniture, and neutral beige and dark wood colors with pops of purple.

Another highlight is the room service: guests of Nobu Hotel are part of an elite group with access to Nobu’s exclusive in-room dining menu, featuring dishes by the iconic chef 24 hours a day. Think green tea waffles, blueberry and yuzu soba pancakes, and mouthwatering bento boxes. (The High Roller bento box packs Wagyu steak, lobster wasabi, spicy garlic shrimp, and premium rolls.)

But as cuisine goes, Nobu restaurant and lounge, located on the hotel’s first level, is the crown jewel. In addition to a swanky bar centerpiece and Matsuhisa’s signature dishes, such as rock shrimp tempura and black cod with miso, diners can gather at Teppanyaki Tables not currently found at any other Nobu in the U.S. Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace, 3570 S. Las Vegas Blvd., 702-785-6677
