First Look: Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace
The highly anticipated Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace won't open until late 2012, but Nobu Hospitality partners including Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro, and Meir Teper, along with designer David Rockwell and principals from Caesars Palace, gave the public a sneak peek at the Las Vegas property last week during an event in New York City.
Rockwell Group designed the hotel space to convey an extension of the fun and energetic Nobu lifestyle, taking lots of influence from Japanese culture and the design of the original New York restaurant.
Surfaces will be comprised of wood tiles that extend through the elevator foyer and into the cabins. Hallways will feature patterned carpets designed to reflect elements of cherry blossoms and Japanese Zen gardens along with pleated wall coverings and custom fixtures inspired by origami.
In an announcement about the project, David Rockwell said, "We have created a distinctly Japanese experience in the heart of Las Vegas with the first Nobu Hotel, but with a playful interpretation of Nobu’s style and the Vegas bravado. Using the grand canvas of a hotel, we were able to elaborate on the use of hand-crafted, curated materials that create a luxurious effect and provide a world-class Nobu experience.”
The hotel will consist of 181 guestrooms including 18 suites. Designs will focus on natural materials and textures counter-balanced with outsized elements to reveal a touch of Vegas flair. Neutral tones will set the room while hints of purple and aqua are emitted from multiple accent pieces, decorative pillows, and artwork. Patterned beige-colored carpets will feature a strong, unconventional graphic designed to invoke sentiments of landforms, seascapes, and active movements. Rooms will also feature custom artwork by up-and-coming Japanese artists.
Bathrooms will feature teak fittings and stone tiles throughout. An oversized walk-in shower comprised of traditional black Umi tiles will offer multiple shower heads and a teak bathing stool, a commodity seen in traditional Japanese bathhouses. Toto toilets and sinks that showcase custom freestanding concrete bowls set on wood plinth are designed to evoke a garden fountain. Bath amenities will include a selection of products by Natura Bisse in a signature rosemary and white tea scent designed exclusively for Nobu Hotel.
And the Nobu Hotel, the first first celebrity-chef branded hotel, plans to one-up the food and beverage experience for guests. Don't expect to find average candy bars and snacks in guestroom minibars. Instead, the minibars will be stocked with unique selections including organic Wild Poppy blood orange chili juice crafted from orchards in California, chocolate-dipped Pocky pretzels, Japanese beer, and an assortment of Dean & Deluca snack items. Nobu’s signature brands of chilled sake and Genmai-Cha brown rice green tea will also be available.
The hotel will also offer an extensive in-room dining menu which will consist of a selection of bento boxes and other items such as green tea waffles served with braised short rib, egg and aged maple; bagel and lox featuring salmon sashimi served on an “everything bagel” made of crispy rice; the RLT with rock shrimp, butter lettuce and Maui onion tomato salsa in a creamy spicy sauce; and the tonkatsu sandwich with panko pork and prune katsu sauce on shokupan bread.
“For Nobu Hotel’s in-room dining menu I have crafted some of my signature selections paired with some new additions to cater to the Vegas market,” said Nobu. “My passion and creativity is communicated into every dish and I look forward to further raising the bar with my newest restaurant and hotel venture.”
The hotel will begin taking reservations beginning in October. Enjoy the sneak peek of the property and get a glimpse at the hotel's first ad campaign in the video below:
