A discreet hotel in the city of excess, difficult to imagine but not something to scoff at. Here, at the heart of the local bedlam, reigns an oasis of calm and Zen. Nobu Matsuhisa and Robert de Niro, his perpetual accomplice, have joined forces for an attempt at their very first hotel. A master stroke? Not far off.
You just need to follow the beautiful backlit onyx sign at Caesars Palace to leave the clicking of its slot machines and the shouts of the craps players behind and enter into the peaceful world of the Nobu. At a small reception, a personable young man or a woman will greet you, check you in on his or her iPad and then off you go to the upper floors in an upholstered lift, with Japanese fabrics of course. A quick history lesson for those that haven't heard of Nobu. He is one of the most famous restaurant owners in the world. Curiously not in France though, where the cash flow for the Nobu restaurant in Paris was exhausted by its partners, including a famous television presenter, forcing it to close very quickly. Elsewhere (London, Dubai, Hong Kong, New York etc.), Nobu has been a roaring success with his recipes inspired from a blend of Japanese cuisine and American fusion food. Delicious, healthy and original. Nobu's partner is Robert de Niro himself. He is also the co-founder of their first hotel, which is designed to offer all the refinement and originality of Nobu's lifestyle. To do so, they have 'Japanified' one of the towers of Caesars Palace.
