Back in June 2016, then Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Alderman Walter Burnett, business tycoon James Pecker were on hand along with Nobu founders Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro and Meir Teper for the ground breaking of the Nobu Hotel Chicago location set for the buzzy West Loop and projected to open in 2017.
Lots of construction delays, setbacks and even lawsuit by Nobu Hotel Chicago developer RCD ventures against once Chicago-headquartered Centaur Construction co-founded by Spiro Tsaparas, Corri Mcfadden’s partner, and we are finally getting close to a first phase opening date, albeit during a pandemic.
The Nobu Hotel Chicago is now accepting reservations and will open its doors to guests on Wednesday July 1 though the signature Nobu restaurant and bar will open at a later date but the rooftop at the 11th floor will open for limited dining. Nobu Hotel Chicago is planning its ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, July 1st.
