Started way back in 1938, this cafe, restaurant and live music venue is a haven for car and motorcycle enthusiasts, who gather for events throughout the year.
The atmosphere at Ace is easy going: challenge your mates to a game of table football, listen to the Jukebox or simply drool over the amazing array of machinery that turns up.
With room to dance, the cafe’s gig list has featured top rock ‘n’ roll artists from the USA, through to a real rockabilly hoe-down with contemporary bands & DJs.
