This is really Ace!

Shot with Olympus E500
A London institution, you may not have heard of it, but if you want to step back in time visit the Ace Cafe. Their history goes back to 1938 - this place IS living and breathing Rock & Roll. To prove it, they have a great jukebox, and TV programmes like 5th Gear are shot here. A closely associated band are The Rapiers, if you like rock'n'roll you'll enjoy their music here or here. (And it looks like they link here, so they MUST be great). Did I take any bike pictures? Yes.

The Ace IS a very cool place to visit. It's dripping with atmosphere, good eats and an incredible selection of merchandise, mostly made in the UK. I personally have taken home cool crockery, a key chain, white silk scarf and more. And cheers for The Rapiers mention, the best '60s band since the '60s, as I like to hype.
