Nobu to add Japanese flavour to Australian Open 2018

The world’s most recognised Japanese restaurant Nobu is set to serve up its own premium flavour at Australian Open 2018 this summer.

The new, exciting partnership will see Nobu join Rockpool Dining Group, Laneway Club, 88 Melbourne and Glasshouse as one of the official restaurants of AO 2018.

Known for its innovative Japanese cuisine, the Nobu empire spans the globe and offers signature dishes including Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeño, Tiradito Nobu-style and Black Cod Miso.

“We are extremely excited to welcome Nobu to the Australian Open 2018 lineup,” Tennis Australia Head of Hospitality Enda Cunningham said.

“We pride ourselves on working with the very best restaurants in the world and Nobu’s reputation as a culinary leader is unequivocal.

“Our hospitality experiences continue to grow and evolve, providing unique opportunities to all fans.”

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with the Australian Open and Nobu in 2018 to showcase some of the best food that Melbourne has to offer,” Crown Melbourne’s Executive General Manager of Food & Beverage, Mark Holmes said.

“Nobu is one of the world’s most famous restaurant brands and is hugely popular with tennis players and fans alike during the Australian Open every year at Crown Melbourne – so it’s fantastic to extend this partnership to a new level and bring some of our famed dishes to life on-site.”

Australian Open hospitality is an enticing option for many fans, with a number of memorable experiences now available for AO 2018.

The highly popular On Court Seating will return for a second year, providing the chance of a lifetime to share centre court with world-class players.

On-site hospitality will also welcome a new entertainment hub called the AO Village, providing a fun, relaxed environment for tennis enthusiasts.

Tickets for the Australian Open are now on sale when purchased with any restaurant or hospitality offering. Visit for more information.
