Copán Café Bar & Garden Terrace tells the story of an ancient civilisation, the Mayan culture of Central America — whose early settlements (Circa 1000BC) are largely accredited as being the genesis of our modern cities. Copán in western Honduras was the first city of the Mayan people and arguably the birthplace of our modern civilisation.
This story is told through the design of the venue. Copán Café Bar & Garden Terrace is a fusion of historical Mayan hieroglyphic and art references treated with a contemporary edge. Our food & beverage offering is delivered to the highest standards, in compliment to these surroundings.
The origins of the name Copán are one of a rich culture of artists and inventors, whose stunning hieroglyphs and architectural achievements are influential right up to the modern day; in their pyramid temples, their Mayan calendar and its 2012 doomsday predictions, and more ‘of the moment’, their hieroglyphics reputedly being the design inspiration for the iPhone interface; and by extension the modern app culture.
