Downtown Los Angeles
In observance of Go Skate Day — the holiest of our secular holidays — we’re about to make our Atelier Ace x Vans Era 59 public. They’re the much-revered, all black everything lace-up worn by Ace Downtown LA’s doormen and front desk team — our first team up with Vans, whose waffle-shaped soles have left such an indelible footprint on SoCal skate culture. Atelier Ace’s limited edition update to Vans’ iconic Era silhouette — the shoe originally designed by skate pioneers Tony Alva and Stacy Peralta in 1975, whose padded collar and grippy sole have made them the gold standard in skate footwear for decades — goes live online on June 23.
To celebrate, we’ve just dropped Noise Grind — an interactive skate game testing your ability to identify skateboard tricks by ear. Put your aural acumen to good use, and you might win the mother load — with prizes including a stay at Ace Hotel DTLA, a year’s supply of fresh Vans and cash to spend at Ace’s online shop. On Sunday June 22, we’ll be hosting a free screening of the instant skate classic Dogtown and Z-Boys at The Theatre at Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles — RSVP now to be sure we can squeeze you in.
