Hotel Cocaine centers around Compte, the general manager of the Mutiny Hotel who attempts to navigate a very complex life. Having arrived in Miami from Cuba, he finds himself running a glitzy nightclub, restaurant and hotel frequented by politicians, models, musicians and sport stars. 

Desperate to fulfil his own version of the American dream, Compte is at the epicentre of the city’s cocaine scene and is soon being forced into a tight spot. Should he help members of his own family who have ties to the drug trade or will he bow to the pressure of Agent Zulio (played by Emmy-award-winning actor Michael Chiklis) who will stop at nothing to shut down the drug trade?

Given the topics explored in this eight-part crime drama, it should come as no surprise that the brainchild of Hotel Cocaine is none of other than Chris Brancato; one of the co-creators of Narcos and the creator of Godfather of Harlem

Given the huge success of those two shows, this new offering looks like a must-watch so keep reading as we explain how to watch Hotel Cocaine online from anywhere – including free options.
