    Nobu Hotel Barcelona has opened it’s doors, bringing with it a sky-high dining destination in the form of the city’s very first Nobu Restaurant on the hotel’s 23rd floor; Nobu Barcelona…

    Billed as the city’s hottest new hotel, Nobu Hotel Barcelona is now open. Think sexy, cool, fun and vibrant interiors, the hotel brings with it the city’s very first Nobu Restaurant, achingly sharp design together with breathtaking views of one of the world’s most exciting cities.

    The interiors of the new hotel have been designed by New-York based Rockwell Group to reflect a Japanese influence. Studio have introduced Kintsugi – a craft where cracked pottery is repaired with lacquer mixed with precious metals to create collages, textures and spaces throughout the hotel – all cleverly paired with incredible works of art inspired by Catalonia’s legendary maestro, Gaudi.

    Located in the Catalan neighbourhood of Eixample, visitors can discover the hidden spots of the city through the hotel’s savvy concierge team; from founders Robert De Niro’s favourite restaurant to the bar Chef Nobu Matsuhisa visits when he’s in town and Meir Teper’s recommendation of where to dance. Just a short stroll from the hotel is Plaza de España, Barcelona’s buzzy La Rambla and the main railway station for high speed links to Madrid, Paris, Lyon and Marseille.

    Following the official opening, the hotel will soon welcome a wellness centre complete with a gym and spa, a Kozara terrace for alfresco dining, auditorium and a Café, serving fresh barista-style coffee.
