Pharrell Williams has announced a new lifestyle and design-forward project with Miami-based hospitality and nightlife entrepreneur David Grutman: Somewhere Else, a new resort that will be part of Atlantis Paradise Island, the world-famous Bahamas destination known for its coral-pink towers and marine attractions.

Slated to open in January of 2024, Somewhere Else will house approximately 400 rooms and suites, multiple restaurants and bars, and bungalows with recording studios — with an emphasis on indoor-outdoor flows with lush, freeform landscaping.

Williams, in a joint exclusive interview with Grutman, said that the concept of “tropical modernism” is being reimagined for this new space, hinting at a more contemporary feel. “Often, when talking about tropical aesthetics, there’s this harkening back to another time,” Williams said. “It’s like, ‘man, let’s let that time be.’ We’re going for the future here.”
