Palm Island was created by the dredging operations that made the MacArthur Causeway. Purchased by the Biscayne Bay Islands Company, both Palm and Hibiscus Islands were started in 1919 and completed by the summer of 1921. When the islands were completed, the Palm Island Club was founded on the northern end next to the bridge that led to Hibiscus Island. For the next decade, the area was known for its illegal drinking and gambling until the end of Prohibition when legal nightclubs were established.
Several nightclubs dotted the area, including the Bouche’s Villa Venice which became the first to occupy Palm Island. Soon, the area became known as the Latin Quarter which famously showcased some of the most popular celebrities of the 20th century. Since then, Palm Island was transformed into a beautiful residential area that now attracts the rich and famous from around the world.
