What does it consist in ? After filling a barrel with the well-known Japanese drink, in this case with special sake Nobu, the owners can be seen breaking the lid with wooden mallets. Then, the broth is served to all attendees and, as an official welcome, guests are invited to celebrate a toast as a sign of good luck.

Nobu’s goal – as stated by the company- has always been committed to creatively transform the hotel industry, “under the firm conviction that hotels and restaurants can be integrated perfectly”.


For this, Nobu opened several high-end restaurants capable of attracting a select clientele of trend creators, influencers and designers. Always true to the brand  known for its perfect mix of luxury and distinction, each hotel is different reflecting the local personality of its enclave while deeply committing itself to it.
