Ace Cafe will start its engines with a grand opening weekend full of events starting May 19.
It’s been about three years since the London-based eatery first announced plans to bring its motor-themed concept to Orlando.
This is the first Ace Cafe to open in the United States. In its two-story main building, Ace Cafe Orlando will offer a full-service restaurant, two kitchens, four bars, a coffee bar, a communal counter, private dining rooms and more.
Enter to win a raffle to win a BMW RnineT Racer will open as well as a giveaway for a trip for two to the 24th Annual Ace Cafe London Reunion Weekend. The contests will be open all weekend. The raffle benefits the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children.
