For some restaurants, a fabric awning works well. They are bright and colorful and can be customized with graphics or other cool things.

But they tear. They fade. They’ve got to be replaced. And sometimes, they just don’t fit with the look and feel of your restaurant.

This is especially true if you’ve got a restaurant in a historic district like the French Quarter. In these cases, you may want your restaurant awning to have a specific style or you may even have have architectural requirements to contend with. Or you may simply want your restaurant to stand out on a busy street.

In either case, a copper restaurant awning is the perfect solution and the ultimate upgrade for any restaurant that truly wants to stand out among the crowd.

Standing Out with Copper

We recently replaced a badly weathered cloth awning for a popular French Quarter restaurant.


You’ll notice from the images the bright red door. It’s impossible to miss.

If you’re going to attract attention on an otherwise whitewashed street with a white door in a historic district like the French Quarter, you’d better have the right type of awning to complete the look!

In this case, the client wanted to maintain the historical, classical look of their entryway. That’s why they chose to combine two different awning styles into one custom copper awning.


They liked the scallops of the 400 Series Victorian Style Awning as they bring a vintage look and feel. Then, we combined it with the modern, yet timeless look of a 1000 Series Standing Seam Awning for a totally customized, unique look.

The end result speaks for itself.

The restaurant has the perfect, historical-yet-modern awning to complement their eye-catching red entryway.
