Ace Café is a famous motorcycle, car, and rock n’ roll themed bar based in London, and 751 is their first branch in China. The architectural style of Ace Café 751 is particularly of note, as it is situated in the renovated 751 train station, which is in an industrial icon. The architects made an effort to retain the original industrial feel so as to match the rock n’ roll theme, tying in nicely with the trendy style of the 798 Art District nearby.
