The overall design of Nobu Chicago is inspired by the Japanese approach to design, from the contemporary lens of Studio K. Japanese influences are merged with the West Loop’s grit and topped with a layer of cosmopolitan sophistication. At its core, it’s a humble approach to design that emphasizes the luxury of experience through an immense attention to detail.

It’s a strikingly simple and tranquil space—anything unnecessary has been left out to keep it free from clutter. Instead, a heavy application of textures creates a warmth and intimacy rarely felt in large hotels.

Inspired by the weathered beauty of Japan’s oldest buildings, natural materials in varying patinas are left intentionally imperfect as if they’ve been stopped in the middle of the aging process. Finally, there’s a dramatic use of proportion throughout the space with unusually high ceilings offset by low furniture.

Reserved, weathered, and intimate, Nobu Chicago brings a new understanding of luxury to Chicago’s West Loop.
