The History of Palm Island

Palm Island’s enduring claim to fame dates back to 1928 when notorious gangster Al Capone moved into the Palm Island mansion, which was built by Clarence Busch of Busch Beer fame in 1922. The Capone estate saw many extravagant, lively, and celebrity-rich parties in the midst of Prohibition. Gambling and bootlegging also livened up the Palm Island Club, which was the scene of many police raids in 1930. Capone’s criminal career ended in 1931 when he was convicted of income tax evasion and Prohibition law infractions. After serving more than seven years in prison, Capone headed to his Palm Island estate with his wife and lived there until he died in 1947. The Palm Island Club eventually closed.

The Latin Quarter on Palm Island Drive became world-famous as the hottest address in American nightlife from the 1940s to the 1960s. The nightclub, owned by Lou Walters, father of broadcasting and journalism legend Barbara Walters, attracted the top entertainers of the period, including Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Dean Martin, and Jerry Lewis. Taking its cue from the Moulin Rouge in Paris, the Latin Quarter featured the world’s best and most beautiful chorus girls performing several dazzling floor shows a night for winter visitors. Eventually, Walters’ productions and Miami Beach’s nightlife moved to the new hotels on Collins Avenue. The Latin Quarter closed, and Palm Island Park took its place when it burned down some years later.

The Ford family built a winter home on Palm Island in the 1930s to escape the Midwestern chill. Frank Sinatra occupied a house there while filming Guys and Dolls, and Nicaraguan dictator Somoza was forced to abandon his island estate after only five days. These days, Palm Island is more sedate.
