With 2018 behind us, now’s the time to reflect on the amazing venues we’ve visited, and to keep our clients well informed of the best places to party. We recently had the pleasure of visiting Nobu Hotel Shoreditch, and they sure knew how to deliver a fine experience. Situated near the buzzing Old Street station, Nobu Shoreditch boasts stylishly elegant accommodation, business spaces, spa facilities and delightful dining and drinking options, making it the perfect spot for professional functions or relaxing pleasure.
Passing through the majestic entry doors, we descended to Nobu Bar and Restaurant at basement level. Natural light from the outdoor courtyard floods the lounge bar area, with a magnificently tall display of tastefully selected exotic spirits. The dining room brings a modern twist to traditionally Japanese décor, marrying sleek wooden form with contemporary upholstery. We opted for a booth, but the restaurant also offers open plan seating and a selection of private dining spaces to suit a variety of occasions. We checked out their Kaijo space, an ultra-private room with Nobu stylings. With space to accommodate up to 200 guests, this could be utilised as a lavish wedding space or matched with meeting rooms for conference and business use.
Nobu has a global reputation for high quality gastronomy and we enjoyed some fantastic dishes. We studied the menu while chefs busied around the open kitchen, expertly slicing huge tranches of sashimi grade tuna with precision. We ordered the classic bento box along with a few extras, which gave us a rounded and satisfying experience of the menu. This option presented us with a warming miso soup opener, along with some of the freshest, most beautifully prepared assorted sushi and sashimi we’ve tasted. A generous chunk of flaking black cod demonstrated the talents of the kitchen, and when paired with expertly seasoned vegetable donburi delivered a taste sensation. We couldn’t resist ordering the mushrooms with yuzu truffle dressing. This nest of exotic eastern fungi came dressed in a rich sticky glaze and heaped with decadent freshly shaven truffle. A heavenly and memorable meal.
Nobu Hotel Shoreditch is the full package: Fantastic location, tasteful bedrooms, incredible food and the space to cater to a variety of private and corporate events. Visitors will be wowed by the superior hospitality and staff professionalism.
