The legendary Ace Cafe London opened in the late 1930's as a restaurant, sevice station and repair shop to cater for traffic on the new North Circular Road. Shortly after, war was decalred, petrol was rationed and the original cafe was destoyed by a bomb.
Post-war, transport cafes were one of the only places to hear Rock 'n' Roll. The British motorcycle industry was at its peak and a strong biker culture emerged at the new Ace. Rockers and motorcyclists from all over the world still flock to share stories, fix bikes and see the legend.
The cafe also has a programme of classic and sports car gatherings. The Ace has featured in several movies and TV shows, including Top Gear and a Long Way Down and is a regular Eco-Rally venue.
"The way of expressing oneself, the music and the machines may have changed over the last decades, but the spirit and motivation remains the same,individual and authentic"- Ace Cafe London
