A Short History of Palm Island & Hibiscus Island
Today's Palm Island and Hibiscus Island still bear historical evidence of a grand and illustrious history, visible immediately beyond the guard gates at the entrance to Palm Island. As one proceeds onto the island, the first thing you pass is a childrens playground full of swing sets, slides and see-saws. But half a century ago this location was an altogether different sort of playground, the island and this area was the site of the Famous Latin Quarter Nightclub.
The Latin Quarter Nightclub - owned by Lou Walters, father of The View’s Barbara Walters, the Latin Quarter was a mid-century mecca for big-named entertainers who performed for winter crowds of tourists and celebrities arriving in Miami Beach each December. Entertainers like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis, Jack Benny and Tony Bennett all intermingled with waves of high-kicking chorus girls to perform three shows a night at the Latin Quarter.
A bit earlier, beginning in the early 1930's, Palm Island became the winter home of such notables as Al Capone and many notable celebrities, who took to Miami Beach's beauty and warm weather. They built various incredible waterfront estates on Palm Island and Hibiscus Island. Many of these historic estates were restored to their full glory during the real estate boom of the late 1980's and early 1990's.
