Ace Cafe Orlando has lined up a week chock full of events to celebrate its first year of operations in The City Beautiful. The “Ace-iversary” kicks off on Monday, May 14 with a GM & Corvette meet, and culminates on Saturday, May 19 with an all-day party featuring live entertainment, a car and bike show, giveaways, food and drinks specials, food drive and more. All events and entertainment, including Saturday’s performance by local favorite Beautiful Bastards are free admission and open to the public.
The first North America location of the celebrated London-based cafe, Ace Cafe Orlando made its world debut on May 19, 2017 after an award-winning renovation of three historic downtown buildings. The Ace’s distinctive brand of dining and entertainment continues to bring together those with a passion for cars, motorcycles, rock n’ roll, good times, and good friends.
The three-acre dining, entertainment and retail complex features a full-service restaurant, two kitchens, four bars, a coffee bar and a communal counter. Entertainment includes live music; retail stores such as a Dainese D-Store, offering Italy’s most famous high-tech riding gear and accessories; Stonebridge Motorgallery, selling original motorsports and rock ‘n’ roll artwork; and private and semi-private spaces for groups large and small.
