The Mutiny

What’s To Love About The Mutiny | Coconut Grove

The Mutiny is a condo-hotel located at 2951 South Bayshore Drive overlooking Sailboat Bay. The Mutiny has become a favorite for those who want to live just steps from the heart of Coconut Grove's village. You will find a combination of 1-4 bedroom units with bay and city views. The building has resort style amenities including concierge, pool, fitness center, valet parking, bar, restaurant and room service.

History Of The Mutiny

 

The Mutiny is one of the most iconic buildings in the Grove due its' colorful past. Built in 1969, the downstairs "members only" club was popular among celebrities, the international jet set and music industry icons. Some have said it was the Studio 54 of Miami. At its peak, it had 11,000 card carrying members and sold more Dom Perignon than any other venue in America.

But the true players at the Mutiny had nothing to do with Hollywood, they were Miami’s drug lords. Multi-million dollar drug deals happened right there on any given night. So much so, that it was the inspiration for the legendary Babylon Club in the movie Scarface. In fact, Oliver Stone, Al Pacino and the rest of the cast and crew checked in for “research” purposes prior to filming.

As grandiose as the clientele was, The Mutiny was uniquely equipped to cater to their needs. The club had its own private plane to retrieve high-rollers, and the hotel converted an entire suite into a walk-in cooler to house the incredible amount of alcohol it required.

As law enforcement began catching up to the dealers the hotel suffered and was eventually shut down. The owner, Burton Goldberg, sold the club in 1984 for $17 million. The new owners tried to convert it into a high-class, no crime establishment, but it didn’t catch on, and 2 years later the hotel was foreclosed on. For more than 10 years this building was shuttered and re-opened in 1999 as a completely renovated luxury condo-hotel that still operates today.

Condo-Hotel Program

The Mutiny is a condo-hotel which means that owners can place their unit in the hotel program and earn income when they aren't using it. This is very appealing to anyone who is a part-time resident. Despite it's status as a condo-hotel, the building still has a percentage of full-time residents who enjoy the hotel style amenities and walk-ability to the center of town.
