Nobu Hospitality, the lifestyle hotel and restaurant brand helmed by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro and Meir Teper, will open its fifth Spanish hotel and restaurant in the Cortes District of the country’s capital city, Madrid.
An existing office building located at 26 Calle Alcalá, between Plaza de Cibeles and Puerta del Sol, will be transformed into Nobu Hotel Madrid. The property will offer a tri-level Nobu restaurant and bar, an expansive rooftop bar, a lounge with views of the Madrid skyline, a state-of-the-art gym and spa.
The restaurant will be reimagined by California-based architectural/design group, Studio PCH, led by Severine Tatangelo. Studio PCH has designed multiple Nobu properties including Nobu Malibu and the Nobu Hotel San Sebastián, which is slated to open in 2023.
Nobu Hospitality is entering into a long-term agreement with Millenium Hospitality Real Estate SOCIMI (MHRE) to develop Nobu Hotel Madrid, their second project following the recent announcement of Nobu Hotel and Restaurant San Sebastián. MHRE has a collection of five-star hotels spread throughout Spain and Portugal.
“We are absolutely thrilled to finally launch in the magnificent city of Madrid,” said Trevor Horwell, CEO, Nobu Hospitality. “A bustling mecca of art, culture, and cuisine, the Spanish capital is an important destination for us. This will be our fifth hotel in Spain, and we look forward to further expanding our Spanish footprint to create a truly memorable hospitality experience for local residents as well as our international Nobu guests.”
Javier Illán Plaza, president of CEO of Millenium Hospitality Real Estate, commented: “I’m so pleased to be announcing our second project with Nobu Hospitality, and the launch of Nobu Hotel Madrid. We are so proud to continue our great relationship with such a successful luxury international brand and bring to the City of Madrid the Nobu experience and the exciting restaurant and rooftop bar which we’re sure will be well received by local residents and travelers alike.”
Nobu Hotel Madrid is the Nobu brand’s 11th hotel in Europe. It joins properties in London, Barcelona, Ibiza, Marbella, and Warsaw with Rome, San Sebastián, Santorini and Hamburg in development.
