Somewhere Nowhere Rooftop (Day)
A new rooftop lounge, nightclub and rooftop pool opening July 1 promises to deliver a full-sensory experience that'll transport you to a fairytale-like garden. Somewhere Nowhere is nestled on the 38th and 39th floors at the top of Chelsea's Renaissance Hotel and has a lush arched entry that leads guests through a dreamlike passageway where they are met with custom art pieces of gnomes and fireflies, neon signs and lantern sconces from another time. The gnomes are part of Sam Tufnell's collection he crafted from translucent resin and tinted with brightly colored pigment, humorously creating a glorified lawn ornament. Each one, which is unique, is installed on a lighted platform to glow in the darkness. Somewhere Nowhere will continue to work with artists to display their works throughout the space. The new club, which claims to be the tallest hotel rooftop with a pool in New York City offering an immersive escape, aims to "tantalize all five senses" using vibrant lights that will dim over time to signal day turning to night, whimsical decor by Let It Be Made 8, a state-of-the-art sound system by DNA Illuminations (the first club to use KV2 Audio Speakers in NYC), and even the scent of a magical forest. Guests can get a 360-degree view of Manhattan on the 39th-floor penthouse's outdoor lounge and open-air rooftop pool, where they'll be able to dance to music by international and local DJs. Somewhere Nowhere will bring the club to life with daily programming from pool parties with world-renowned DJs to captivating live music, or an immersive dinner experience with a magic show.
