Hamburg / New York City, 24.02.2021 – A first for Hamburg: Nobu Hospitality, the global lifestyle brand founded by Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro and Meir Teper, will open its first hotel and restaurant in Germany at the Elbtower in Hamburg.

“We are delighted to be working with SIGNA on the development of Nobu Hotel in the great city of Hamburg,” said Robert De Niro and Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, founder of Nobu Hospitality. The opening is planned for 2025 after completion of the high-rise project.

Timo Herzberg, CEO SIGNA Real Estate Germany: “The partnership with Nobu Hospitality underlines our convincing project development in HafenCity. The location in the Elbtower fits perfectly into the Nobu collection and will be one of the most exclusive destinations in Hamburg.”

Trevor Horwell, CEO Nobu Hospitality, says: “We are delighted to be working with SIGNA on this unique project and are in the process of exploring further destinations with SIGNA. Hamburg, one of the most economically strong locations in Germany, is an attractive destination for travellers, whether for leisure or business, and is a perfect fit for our global client base. The Elbtower itself is a world-class project at the centre of which will be our Nobu Hotel and Restaurant.”

Exclusive lifestyle hotel with a private members club

Nobu Hotel Elbtower Hamburg will feature 191 generously designed rooms and suites, a 200-seat Nobu Restaurant, a stylish terrace bar and lounge overlooking the Elbe river. In addition to the restaurant, the hotel will also have high-quality function rooms for corporate and social events. Another highlight is the Nobu Private Members Club. Members will benefit from a private lounge, access to the hotel’s fitness and wellness area as well as exclusive events. Nobu is one of the world’s best-known luxury hospitality brands, renowned for its award-winning “new style” Japanese cuisine. Exceptional hotel offerings along with charming service can be found in the world’s most attractive locations.

The Elbtower – a high point of architectural and urban development

The 245m-high, 64-storey Elbtower was designed by the renowned architectural firm David Chipperfield Architects and will complete the city’s silhouette with its striking curved façade.

It forms a design counterpoint to the famous Elbphilharmonie concert hall. It is both the prelude and the conclusion for the new HafenCity district. With their innovative layouts, the publicly accessible lower floors offer a variety of shops, restaurants, co-working spaces and cultural uses. In this way, they form the hub of the Elbtower. Here, office users, hotel guests, tourists and Hamburg residents will find an elegant location that invites them to linger. The tower itself consists of the most modern, flexibly configurable office spaces in which the working world of tomorrow will find a home. A roof terrace at a height of 225m offers an incomparable view over the city.
