Toronto is finally getting a Nobu hotel and the restaurant is going to be huge

Despite a series of construction-related delays due to COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions, Nobu is going ahead with its plans to bring the brand to Toronto’s downtown core.

Nobu currently has 47 properties around the world, including in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Caribbean.

Set to debut in 2023, Nobu Toronto is a dynamic project featuring Nobu’s first high-rise residences as well as Canada’s first-ever Nobu Hotel and Nobu Restaurant.

Founded by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro, and Meir Teper, the property will be located in the heart of the entertainment district, at 30 Mercer Street. Nobu Toronto will rise 45 storeys above the historic Pilkington Glass Factory with two dramatic residential towers, featuring 660 sold out residential units with enviable views of Toronto.

The exclusive Nobu Hotel Toronto will offer a collection of 36 exceptionally appointed guest suites located atop the west tower, with stunning panoramic views and featuring the best of everything – from distinctive service to energized public spaces.

Anchoring the residences will be Nobu Restaurant. It will house approximately 15,000 square feet of space and will be a two-level restaurant, complete with a signature bar lounge, outdoor seating and chic private dining rooms.
