Café Central opened in 1918 in Juarez, Mexico, electrifying a clientele of gamblers and cabaret-goers who quickly grew to expect the finest culinary experience in the region at this chic night spot. After Prohibition ended, Café Central migrated closer to the border, and finally crossed into downtown El Paso. It became known as Miguel's Central Café, known as a uniquely El Paso dining experience. In 1991, V. Trae Apodaca III and Michael Lynch became intrigued with the restaurant's potential, as well as the need for a chic bistro downtown, for travelers and locals alike. He created an elegant black and cream interior to set off his collection of original art, and restored some of the Café's old charm with an ornately gated New Orleans style courtyard. By 2008, Alejandro and Eduardo Orozco, well known restaurateurs, took over the ownership of the restaurant. Café Central's charm and elegant ambiance is still one of its favorite characteristics making the restaurant among the favorites of the city and travelers. Today's Café Central combines innovative taste with 80-year-old traditions.
