Part of Groot Hospitality

Groot Hospitality is a Miami Beach, Florida-based collective of top restaurants, bars, cafés, nightlife ventures and hotels. Officially formed in 2018 by the entrepreneur David Grutman, the company is renowned for creating entirely unique atmospheres of upscale dining, luxe decor, marquee entertainment and highly shareable, unforgettable moments.

Current Groot Hospitality properties include: The Goodtime Hotel, the nightclub LIV, the restaurants Gekkō, Komodo, Komodo Dallas, The Key Club, Papi Steak, Strawberry Moon and Swan. At both the Goodtime Hotel and Swan, Grutman is partners with the multi-hyphenate musician and producer Pharrell Williams – the pair will also open their first resort, Somewhere Else on Atlantis Paradise Island, in 2025. Grutman is also partners with the recording artist and actor Bad Bunny on Gekkō.

Multiple other projects are in the pipeline, including an expansion plan bringing Groot Hospitality worldwide. As of 2023, Groot Hospitality broadened its reach beyond South Florida with the opening of Komodo Dallas, located in the Texan city’s Deep Ellum neighborhood. Additional ventures include Las Vegas-based outposts of LIV, Komodo and Papi Steak, which will open in late 2023. At home in Miami, the restaurant Casadonna–created in collaboration with Tao Group Hospitality–will open in Fall 2023, as well.

Ultimately, Groot Hospitality delivers one-of-a-kind outings across its locations and activations. By further programming the company’s physical spaces with an immersive,360-degree approach — including a focus on headline performances and social media vignettes — we consistently provide our patrons with an experience that is high-energy,high-impact, and highly memorable.
