The Ace Cafe Orlando has announced that the grand opening will take place on May 19, 2017. If you love historic motorcycle events, you should get down there

While it may bear little resemblance to the London original, which opened nearly 80 years ago, Ace Cafe Orlando promises to be the new motorcycling hub of the southeast U.S. The May 19 grand opening will feature “cool cars and hot bikes, charity ride, motorcycle raffle, special guests, free rock ‘n roll concerts, site-wide giveaways, activities, and more.”

Guests are invited to kick-start the grand opening weekend of the all-new, full-throttle, rock ‘n roll destination Ace Cafe with a cuppa coffee or tea when the Ace officially opens its doors to the public on Friday at 7:00 a.m., then stay to enjoy an action-packed weekend of festivities at the 35,000-square-foot motor-centric dining, entertainment and retail destination.
