Get To Know The ClubAbout UsA One Of A Kind Place

Our History

Motopia was founded in 2008 in Dallas, Texas, as a one-of-a-kind place where motorcycle enthusiasts could find a home away from home.

The original Club House offered its members a full European coffee house, a restaurant, a comfortable lounge with a fireplace, a business center for an office-away-from-the-office environment, and, for our motorcycle enthusiasts, a complete motorcycle detail and repair shop surrounded by large plate glass observation windows to watch motorcycles being worked on.

Our Founders

Rene Larrave, a motorcycle enthusiast and world traveler, began thinking of a place like Motopia back in 2004. Ramir Camu, joined the team with his passion for European coffee houses, new work environments, and bold design to develop the unique concept that became Motopia from 2008 to 2014.

Rene Larrave has travelled to more than 100 countries, many of them on his motorcycle. Some of his most interesting motorcycle journeys have included going from Germany to Mongolia, from Dallas to Tierra del Fuego, and places like Europe, Iceland, Colombia, Brasil, New Zealand, Vietnam, Mexico, Zambia, Mongolia, South Africa, Malawi, Kyrgyzstan. He also races his motorcycle on the track and ventures on dirt whenever possible.


Our Future

This original Club House closed on July 2014. We opened our newer, bigger and better garage in 2016 in downtown Dallas and for fun we are now visiting and discovering the best, newest, and trendiest restaurants and bars around Dallas for Motopia's Bike Night every week.
