The wild, true story of the Mutiny, the hotel and club
that embodied the decadence of Miami’s cocaine cowboys
heyday—and an inspiration for the blockbuster film,
In the seventies, coke hit Miami with the full force of
a hurricane, and no place attracted dealers and dopers like
Coconut Grove’s Mutiny at Sailboat Bay. Hollywood royalty,
rock stars, and models flocked to the hotel’s club to order
bottle after bottle of Dom and to snort lines alongside
narcos, hit men, and gunrunners, all while marathon orgies
burned upstairs in elaborate fantasy suites.
Amid the boatloads of powder and cash reigned the new kings
of Miami: three waves of Cuban immigrants vying to dominate
the trafficking of one of the most lucrative commodities
ever known to man. But as the kilos—and bodies—began to pile
up, the Mutiny became target number one for law enforcement.
Based on exclusive interviews and never-before-seen
documents, Hotel Scarface is a portrait of a city
high on excess and greed, an extraordinary work of
investigative journalism offering an unprecedented view of
the rise and fall of cocaine—and the Mutiny—in Miami.
