Nobu has become an international restaurant with exotic cruise. The brand was worth $500 million in 2015 but that amount has doubled over the past few years.
The high-end chain was started in 2009 and the first Nobu, a boutique hotel inside Caesar’s Palace Las Vegas was opened in 2013.
Recently, the hotel has opened a 10,000 square-foot Nobu Hotel, Chicago, the Nobu Hotel Marbella, a 23-story skyscraper with 134 guestrooms and suites, Nobu Hotel Riyadh in Saudi Arabia, Nobu Hotel Los Cabos and Nobu Hotel Barcelona.
