Dexter Filming Locations: The Red Coral Club

DEXTER Filming Locations - hundreds of actual places where the TV show Dexter was filmed.

The location: The Red Coral Club

Q. What is it supposed to be on the show?

    A. Red Coral, an exclusive, members-only club.

Q. Where is it supposed to be on the show?

    A. Somewhere in Miami.

Q. When did we see it on the show?

    A. In Episode 7, of Season 8, "Dress Code".

    After Dexter tracks down Hannah McKay and finds her aboard a rich man's yacht, he follows them to this exclusive club.

    But when he tries to enter, he is stopped at the door and told the club is members-only and has a strict dress code (Dex is dressed in his usual pink shirt).

    So Dexter phones Zach Hamilton, a rich young psychopath Dex is taking on as an apprentice, and (with Dex now wearing a jacket) Zach easily gets him into the club.

    Inside, Dex spots Hannah and the older man at the bar, and when the man leaves, Dexter goes over to talk to Hannah.

    He is shocked when she tells him that she's married to the rich stranger, whose name, she tells him, is Miles Castner.  She warns Dex to leave before Miles sees him.

    But he doesn't, even after Zach texts him that Miles is coming back.

    An tense scene ensues, and Dex is shocked once again to learn that Miles knows his name, and knows that he put Hannah in prison.

    Miles & Hannah leave the club, while Dexter fumes at the bar.

Q. What is it actually in real life?

    A. A night club.

Q. Where can I find it in real life?

    A. This scene was shot at Boulevard3, at 6523 Sunset Blvd, in Hollywood.

    It's located in the old Hollywood Athletic Club building, at the northeast corner of Sunset & Schrader Blvd.

    This scene appears to have been shot at the club's Library bar., a smaller room next to the 7,500-sq. ft. three-level ballroom.

    This is the same club where they filmed back in Season 5, when (on the show) it was supposed to be Club Mayan.

Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?

    A.  In the early seasons, I usually had to hunt down the locations after viewing the episodes, using clues from the various scenes.  By the now, though, I've developed a small group of fans, spies & tipsters who kept an eye out for Dexter filming in their neighborhoods, and let me know in advance when something is about to film there.

    Between those reports, my own personal reconnaissance around town, and a few new resources I discovered, by the time the new first episode airs, I already know most (but not all) of the filming locations, and only need to watch the episodes and match up the scenes with the correct locations.

    This group of helpful fans includes Rick, Ellen, Suzi, Elaine, Mia, Julie, Kerry, Joel, Eric, Jeff, & others. My thanks to all of them.

    This tip came from Rick.  (Thanks, Rick!)
