Caesars Entertainment Inc. and global lifestyle brand Nobu Hospitality recently announced they will extend their holdings, adding two new Nobu hotels and restaurants at Harrah’s New Orleans and Caesars Atlantic City, adding a Nobu restaurant at Paris Las Vegas, and renovating the first Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
In a joint statement, Nobu founders Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro and Meir Teper said, “We opened our first Nobu Hotel in 2013 at Caesars Palace, breaking the mold and doing something that had never been done before by placing a boutique experience inside one of the most iconic resorts on the Strip.
“We now have expanded the collection around the world, and we have a robust pipeline of destinations in development. We are excited to take this next step in our growing partnership with Caesars.”
Caesars Entertainment CEO Tom Reeg commented, “Our relationship with Nobu has been an unparalleled success in Las Vegas, and as we continue to invest there and in New Orleans and Atlantic City, we felt it was the perfect opportunity to deepen and expand that relationship. Nobu’s sophisticated elegance is the perfect complement to the multimillion-dollar renovation projects we are developing in all three cities, all of which are fast becoming the nation’s top modern sports, gaming and entertainment destinations.”
Nobu Hotels and restaurant concepts are described as a blend of modern, cool luxury and minimal Japanese tradition. The Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace offers 182 guest rooms and suites, including the lavish rooftop Nobu Villa and one of the world’s largest Nobu restaurants. A multimillion-dollar refresh will be completed by the end of this year.
A new Nobu restaurant and lounge will open at Paris Las Vegas in early 2022, the second Las Vegas restaurant developed by Nobu Hospitality and Caesars Entertainment.
Nobu Hotel Atlantic City is scheduled to open in summer 2022 within Caesars Atlantic City. The venue, which will include a Nobu restaurant, is part of Caesars’ $400 million renovation, to be completed by 2023. The project will include high-end remodeled rooms and suites, new interior design elements, gaming floor enhancements and many more additions.
Finally, in 2024, Nobu Hotel New Orleans and restaurant will open within the new Caesars New Orleans, following a multimillion-dollar makeover of Harrah’s New Orleans.
Matsuhisa’s famed fusion cuisine blends traditional Japanese dishes with Peruvian ingredients. He opened his first restaurant in Los Angeles in 1987. The first Nobu-branded restaurant debuted in 1994 in TriBeCa in New York City. The brand now includes 17 locations in the U.S. and 30 more worldwide.
