The latest Eastern European capital of culture is now home to Poland’s first Nobu hotel. Set in the heart of Warsaw’s creative district, this globally recognized address fuses Art Deco with ultramodern design.
Surrounded by independent designer boutiques, art galleries and the trendy Hala Koszyki food hall, enter what feels like an upscale nightclub when floating through the doors of the hotel into Nobu Restaurant. Helmed by Executive Chef Yannick Lohou, the signature menu is composed of Nobu classics including ‘Toro Tartare with Caviar’ and ‘Beef Yoban Yaki’. The chef’s Nobu Now menu playfully crafts locally-sourced Polish-inspired dishes.
Where better to seek respite following a multi-course Nobu feast than elevated in one of the 117 sleek rooms? Minimally outfitted in local materials including Polish wood, steel, concrete and stone, each Japanese-styled space – the result of a collaboration between Polish architectural firm, Medusa Group, and California-based Studio PCH – evokes a deep sense of zen. The curated selection of books takes you on a global journey.
Eight organic designs by artist Anna Bimer decorate the rooms depending on the furniture and amount of light. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the contemporary new wing open onto thrilling skyline views. When curtains are not drawn, privacy is heightened via external living green screens.
Several smaller rooms and two event spaces on Nobu Hotel Warsaw’s first floor, namely the Sakura room at 266 m2 and Hikari room at 171 m2, set a more corporate scene for conferences and meetings.
Along with green elements in the form of plants, the geometrically carpeted corridors invite in natural light. The hotel’s public spaces highlight Polish masterpieces from the Jankilevitsch Collection. Included is the work of recognized contemporary Polish artist Piotr Uklański who references both 1960s art and Polish aesthetic traditions.
Nobu Hotels’ philosophy of ‘luxury through simplicity is perfectly represented throughout their latest property blending industrial elements with nature. The dynamic city of Warsaw welcomes this new aesthetic.
