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.
