“Don” Ramon and Hortensia Pelàez opened the doors of Copacabana in the Pike Place Market in June of 1964.
Named for “Our Lady of Copacabana” shrine in La Paz, Bolivia, the restaurant stood as a symbol of hope and courage for the entire Pelàez family. The restaurant still remains family-owned and operated, where they continue the original informal and friendly atmosphere.
Come enjoy the taste of Bolivia and enjoy one of the best patios in Seattle, located in the Triangle Building. Find the stairs to this restaurant in Post Alley.
