You’re probably already acquainted with Jack Rebney, Winnebago Man. If not, here’s your introduction. Filmmaker Ben Steinbauer had the brilliant idea to make a documentary about him, and we’ll have it on our VOD first and exclusively for the month of November, too. So you can double up on good things: staying with us, and watching the funniest @$!&#% you’ve ever seen in your life.


There’s a hive of bees atop Ace New York. Whitney, a very hard worker herself, started the hive with her boyfriend when it was still illegal to keep bees in New York City. She had to find somewhere to put it after they broke up and she got full custody of the bees. Now they’re on our roof, working away busily (and legally). We’re hoping to make a green space up there — the bees are a good start, and April Bloomfield of the Breslin wants to garden (this actually triples the life of a roof). There’s an inspiring view, and Whitney’s bee smoker (fueled by burlap Stumptown bags) creates a sense of nascent adventure and intrigue, standing on top of the world. Maybe next time you stay with us there’ll be a little jar of honey waiting on your desk…


Thomas Bullock started DJing in 1980s Brighton as a teenager at the notorious Tonka Hi-Fi, and went on to re-invigorate the NYC dance underground in the 90s with collaborator and friend, DJ Harvey. They threw lawless, raucous parties in dive bars and apartments, invitation by word of mouth, and garnered a cult following with what they called “disco theater.” Thomas is still innovating, and has such an impressive résumé we can’t even list it all here. One half of Rub n’ Tug, one half of Map of Africa. The man behind Whatever We Want Records, and edits and remixes from Otterman Empire to the Beastie Boys, Roxy Music to Bat For Lashes.He’s spinning alongside DJs Nitedog and Eug, with live performances by Adele Jacques and Disco Fromage at our Fourth  of July party with Generic Surplus this weekend at Ace Palm  Springs. To top it off we have really cheap rooms all weekend, and we’re barbecuing Sunday by the Commune Pool. Get some friends and meet us there.
And if you can’t make it to the desert, we have a special rate in New York through Monday.

Breakfast of Champions

No. 7 Sub at Ace New York started serving breakfast sandwiches today. True to form, Tyler Kord’s unorthodox pairings (unexpectedly pickled, shockingly multi-sensory) make for an invigorating start to the day. Look out for the morning hoagies: broccoli, egg, smoked gouda and Thai basil pesto; cucumber peanut butter, pickled bananas and honey; and corned beef hash, scallion cream cheese and poppyseeds. Serving breakfast until 10:30 each morning.

Craft Night with Ranger Joe : Ace Palm Springs

Ranger Joe has combined two of life’s greatest pleasures — happy hour and summer camp — to make Craft Night. Every last Wednesday, he transforms the Amigo Room into a boozy make-along, with a new craft featured every month: desert pom-pom pets, paper poppies, friendship bracelets, and paper plate masks to name a few. New Year’s Eve, it was noise-makers. And tomorrow, God’s Eyes. When was the last time you made a God’s Eye? In June, you can make necklaces with braided and macrame’d strips of fabric and be the envy of the desert.

Materials are free, and so are ghost stories. Joe only brings a few pairs of scissors, so you’ll have to share and talk to each other. This is also free. Stay tuned for a custom soundtrack from Joe’s sweetheart, Victor Rodriguez.
