The Ace Café has been a stalwart of the biker scene in the UK for almost 80 years and now its hopped across the pond as Ace Café USA opens in Orlando next week.
The American café has even had a clock tower built to more closely resemble the British original.
Ace Café Orlando, the first North American location for the London-based cafe, spans 35,000 square foot with doors opening on Friday May 19 for a weekend of festivities, including a time slot for 'Bikes & Bacon'...SUCH a Shame we can't be there, but we'll be making a visit soon for sure.
The three day grand opening will feature live music, some hot bikes and cars, a BMW R nineT motorcycle raffle raising money for Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, live art demonstrations and lots of merch on sale.
In fact there's so much fun to be had there's even a free rock concert on Friday starring a Rockin' Jason D. Williams. And although we haven't a clue who this Jason is, we're very excited about him.
"Our team is privileged to continue the culture and heritage of the world’s most famous motor diner,” said Mark McKee, CEO and Chief Gearhead of Ace Café North America.
"This is exactly the Ace that we envisioned – a beacon for everyone, from petrolheads and enthusiasts, to the after-hours work crowd, families, music lovers, and everyone in between.
"We have remained true to the spirit of the Ace, and we have done so in a way that honors this incredible space in the heart of downtown Orlando. It is our hope that Ace Café Orlando will serve this community for generations to come."
The venue spans across two floors and features a restaurant, two kitchens, four bars, a coffee bar, a mezzanine overlooking the main floor dining area and stage, private and semi-private group spaces, retail shops and a motor-inspired art gallery. Bloody 'ell mate, spoilt for choice much?
