Nobu Hotel London Portman Square was open for just under two weeks this month before being forced to close again until the new year.
According to the hotel’s Facebook page it eventually opened on December 4, but just a few days later it posted the following statement:
“Our lights will be dimmed, but only for now…
“Due to the decision to put London into Tier 3, we will have to close our doors at 11pm on Tuesday 15th December. Our teams will be in touch in the coming days with everyone who has reservations with us to move them to new dates, but in the meantime, we send all our support to all our wonderful neighbours still operating in Marylebone, London and beyond.
“Thank you for your support so far – we will see you on the other side – bigger, brighter and better!”
The hotel’s website now simply carries the message “reopening 2021”.
It is one of several new London properties to have seen their openings impacted by Covid-19.
The Londoner on Leicester Square had originally been set to be unveiled this summer, but currently has an opening date of April 2021, while Pan Pacific London has also seen its opening pushed back to next year.
