Pharrell Williams' Guide to Miami


Pharrell Williams shot by Jake Chessum
N*E*R*D frontman, and PAPER November issue cover boy, Pharrell Williams says his Art Basel Miami highlights have thus far have included checking out Marc Newson's Aquariva speedboat at the Standard and strolling through Design Miami. (We're assuming he'll be adding his performance with N*E*R*D tonight at FriendsWithYou's "Rainbow City" to the list, too). Williams is also a Miami native, and we asked him to share his favorite spots around town where Art Week attendees can soak up all of this week's fun, or take a quick Basel breather.

BEST MIAMI-BASED ARTIST:
I'll have to be a little biased and say FriendsWithYou.

BEST MIAMI GALLERIES:
I've been on tour all year, so I haven't seen any new ones. I'm always interested to see what Emmanuel Perrotin brings to the table, though.

BEST SPOT TO PEOPLE-WATCH:
In the streets of the design district

BEST SPLURGE FOR DINNER:
Michael's

BEST NEW MIAMI HOTSPOT:
Bardot Miami

BEST SHOPPING:
The Webster

BEST PLACE TO GET AWAY FROM THE MADNESS:
Beaches of Key Biscayne
