At Ace Cafe London we welcome all who share our passion, based upon the rich traditions of motorcycles, cars and rock n’ roll. Established in 1938, today the Ace has become “the home” for petrolheads and is known as the world´s most famous motor cafe. From the iconic original cafe at Ace Corner in Northwest London, and following your enquiries, Ace premises are open in Beijing, Lahti and Lucerne, and now the Ace Cafe Barcelona and Ace Cafe Orlando venues, both having celebrated their Grand Opening in spring 2017.
All Ace venues, whilst catering locally for their crowds, share the true Ace Cafe spirit and, with privilege and pride, invite you all to be part of it. Though the way of expressing oneself, the music and the machines have changed over the last decades, the spirit and motivation remains the same, individual and authentic. So set the wheels in motion and take a journey with us through the unique Ace Cafe experience!
Bonneville T120 Ace A Celebration Of The Original Cafe Racers!
The limited edition Bonneville T120 Ace is a modern classic that’s moody, mean and full of attitude. Based on the celebrated T120 Black, the Bonneville T120 Ace has real pedigree, performance and presence to go with its purpose.
‘Head Down – Hang On’ was the refreshingly defiant attitude of the young urban leather-clad Bonneville riders of the 1960s as they rode out onto and beyond London’s North Circular then gathered back at the Ace Cafe, comparing rides and sharing tales to a thrilling soundtrack of rock ‘n’ roll.
The spiritual home of British motorcycling and cafe racers, traffic light heroes, and ‘out to the Hanger Lane roundabout and back before the record finishes’ riders, London’s legendary Ace Cafe, and the timeless biker attitude to speed that made it famous, are now commemorated with an one-off Triumph limited edition motorcycle; the Bonneville T120 Ace.
Delivered with a numbered certificate signed by Triumph CEO Nick Bloor and Ace Cafe managing director Mark Wilsmore, the Bonneville T120 Ace is a real collectors’ item.

The Ace Story
It was in England. It was in London. It was in 1938. A road side cafe was built to cater for those using the then new arterial carriage way – the North Circular Road – the A406. It was just before the war. It was a place no one at the time would have thought would go on to become the world´s most famous Motor Cafe. This building was called The Ace Cafe. And the story began…. The doors having opened the Ace Cafe became a meeting point for motorists who not only liked to pull over for a cuppa or a Full British Breakfast, but also to enjoy the company of like-minded people.
Heavily damaged in an air raid by the Luftwaffe in 1940, it was subsequently rebuilt in 1948. With the advent of Rock ‘n Roll, the Ace Cafe attracted youngsters on their motorcycles. The Cafe Racer was born, the record races, and with them came the Ton Up boys and girls, and the Rockers. It´s a story about Speed, it´s a story about boy meets girl, it´s a timeless story with worldwide appeal and which to this day continues, carrying the spirit into the future. It´s our story. It´s your story. It´s the Ace Cafe story. Keep revving it up!
