The Palm Bay Club was the destination for the fabulous glitterati of 1970s Miami. In 1965, Sports Illustrated called it ‘Connie’s Club for Homeless Glitterbugs,’ referencing its creator Connie Dinkler. I found an old article somewhere that said Vidal Sassoon himself came once and did everyone’s hair. The Palm Bay Club has mellowed since then but the main tower is still a prized address for Miamians that really know what they’re doing.
This unit, number 5W, is a two bedroom, four bath, 1,763 square foot spread in the tower, with curving walls, fabulous balconies, and hardly a straight line in the joint. The furniture and adornments make it a perfectly preserved time capsule for the Palm Bay’s more halcyon days. It’s on the market for $750,000.
