SUSHI IN A WINK
The hip East London neighborhood of Shoreditch has its fair share of cool places to sleep, from the Ace Hotel to the Hoxton Hotel, but the newest and the trendiest is this stylish new outpost from Japanese chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa and actor Robert De Niro.
The architecture of the new building is as cutting edge as it gets, all striking steel and glass, and it simply screams luxury. As do the rooms. The bathroom sinks are gold – we’re not joking – as are the shower and taps. The beds are huge and forget about bathrobes – at Nobu hotels it’s all about the complimentary kimonos. Best of all this is the Nobu Shoreditch restaurant and bar downstairs, set to become London’s new Chiltern Firehouse when it comes to being the trendiest destination in town, and serving up Nobu’s trademark Japanese-fusion dishes. Yellowtail with jalapeño anyone?
