November 30, 2022

ATLANTA, Nov. 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Nobu Hospitality and Simon®  welcomed local dignitaries and community leaders today to celebrate the opening of Nobu Hotel & Restaurant Atlanta at Phipps Plaza. The property serves as Nobu's 15th location overall and first in Georgia, making its debut in the Buckhead community at the modern, reimagined, mixed-use Phipps Plaza.

Designed by Rockwell Group, the hotel features 152 stylish guest rooms and suites, including a striking rooftop pool with surrounding event space, corporate conference rooms and a state-of-the-art fitness center with Technogym equipment. Nobu Atlanta Restaurant, celebrated for its signature new style Japanese cuisine, will welcome diners to the new 10,000-square-foot space, serving iconic Nobu dishes alongside specialties featuring local, homegrown ingredients.

"It's an honor to launch the Nobu brand in Atlanta's vibrant Buckhead community at Phipps Plaza," said Nobu Hospitality Group CEO Trevor Horwell. "Our approach to hospitality – embracing sophisticated accommodations and outstanding cuisine – will offer guests the ultimate luxury lifestyle experience in the heart of Atlanta."  

Phipps Plaza is an unrivaled mixed-use development that redefines the way Buckhead lives, works, plays and shops. This iconic shopping and dining destination is now headlined by Nobu Hotel & Restaurant Atlanta and all its world-class amenities. In early December, Life Time and Life Time Work will open its 90,000-square-foot luxury athletic country club and 30,000-square-foot premium coworking destination. This comes in addition to the now open One Phipps Plaza, a 365,000-square-foot, LEED certified, 13-story, Class A office tower. Early next year, Citizens Culinary Market, a 24,000-square-foot upscale lifestyle food concept, is scheduled to open, injecting new culinary concepts into the destination's iconic footprint.

"We're excited to celebrate the opening of Nobu Hotel & Restaurant Atlanta as our vision of Phipps Plaza becomes a reality for guests to enjoy – from the Southeast and beyond," said Simon Property Group Senior Vice President, Development & Asset Intensification Patrick Peterman. "Nobu's unique allure and high-end reputation reinforces Phipps Plaza as a world-class destination for hospitality, shopping, dining, work and entertainment."
