I have lived in West London all my life and have never been to Ace Cafe before. So for 4th July though it would be a good day as any to check this place out! I wouldn't want to go into this place on my own being the Fred Perry wearing and having neat hair cut R&B dancing kind of kid that I am. So thought it would be nice to have some other people with me in case we get into any trouble with them rockers! (only joking I 'm sure the place is fine) :) I do like a a bit of Eddie Cochran and Sun Records, so am keen to try this place out.
Ace Cafe is is all about the cars, motorcycles and rock n roll! It opened as a 24 hour cafe in 1938 to accommodate traffic on the North Circular Road. They put on a lot of events such as showcasing custom cars and bikes and rockabilly nights. A lot of history here folks!
