The spirit of innovation that saw Nobu Matsuhisa bring Japanese-Peruvian cuisine to the world in the 90s extends to Christmas parties at Nobu Hotel Shoreditch. There'll be no turkey at the in-house restaurant; instead, groups can enjoy Nobu's umami-rich flavours in natty, Asian-inspired surrounds. The dedicated Kaiju event space divides into six smaller rooms for more intimate gatherings. Bigger parties can take over the restaurant and its three-tiered courtyard space. Interactive add-ons such as sake tasting and sushi making lift festive events even further from the norm.
