The Ace Cafe and the automotive passion that fueled it.
What you may notice about Ace Cafe is that it's very "geared" towards the automotive culture.
Originally it was a place to grab a quick bite as well as some maintenance done to your car or bike while you made your pit stop but it became a place of gathering for young and wild motorists who wanted a place to hang out and listen to Rock 'n' Roll in the early years.
Carry that history into today's day 'n' age and tell me if you notice anything, similar?
It's no secret that the Ace Cafe in Orlando is keeping the tradition strong by catering to the automotive culture here in Florida and like days of old, today's generation can be seen gathering together for the purpose of showing off their hard work, grabbing some food, and enjoying a drink amongst familiar faces or new friends.
Attending the show was actually refreshing. The atmosphere made you feel at home, people were socializing and I spotted a few dog owners walking with their canine counterparts of all breeds and sizes. With a beer in hand and good friends to chat it up with and watching cars come and go, I can say the Ace Cafe has really made me fall in love with what it's trying to do.
Bringing good people together for the love of a good time.
For anyone looking for a place to hang out with your local car or bike clubs, if you love cars and want to grab a bite to eat or just a place to kick back and relax while enjoying the automotive view, Ace Cafe is the ticket.
Rich with history and a welcoming place for any true gear-head.
