Ace Cafe
June 18th, 2014 9:28 AM

Ace Cafe, a British hub for vintage-motorcycle and custom-car events, plans to open its first U.S. complex in downtown Orlando within a year.

Owners of the Ace brand have signed a long-term lease for acreage and several industrial buildings facing Interstate 4 at Livingston Street, next to the downtown Lynx and SunRail stations.  Initial plans call for a restaurant and bar, a shop for Ace Cafe's Rockers merchandise and a motorcycle dealership, which would likely specialize in European brands.  Ace might build a motorcycle museum and repair shop later.

The London Ace Cafe draws thousands of motorcycle and car enthusiasts to its 400 annual events.  The Orlando operations would be larger with 3 acres and more than 16,000 sq. ft. of space.  The new cafe would provide a meeting place for car and motorcycle fans.  Events could include everything from Old Ford Night and Mini Cooper meetups to gatherings for motorcycle clubs. 

Orlando stood out from about a dozen possible U.S. locations because of weather, international visitors, British tourists and proximity to Daytona Beach, with its speedway and Bike Week crowds.  

This is more exciting growth and development for the Orlando area, whose economic progress is on a positive path!
