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.

Be that guy. Today is Go Skateboarding Day 2013.


Speaking of skateboarding — here’s a wee movie SHUT Skateboards put together about the adventures we had with them and Vans on Go Skateboarding Day 2012, kicking off at Ace Hotel New York.


In honor of Go Skateboarding Day and all its concomitant glory — legal, illegal and otherwise — we’re hosting Skate Related in the Ace New York Gallery space through July 7. The show features prints and designs — by rad folk like Mr. Mike Burrill —  inspired by life on the deck, as well as our Shut x Ace Excelsior skate deck. And yes, that is Justin Beiber.

We love this gorgeous skate video shot with Kilian Martin — the butchest ballerina we’ve ever clapped eyes on — posted here just in time for Go Skateboarding Day, an international call to action and day of wildness in the streets. Join us tomorrow morning at 11am with board in hand for a free cup of French press from Stumptown at Ace Hotel New York before we set out on the streets to defile the principles of capitalism by riding skateboards all day and doing nothing else. In the evening, we’ll be at Tammany Hall for the NY GSD celebration with DJ sets and raffles for cool things. If you want to go RSVP so we know you’re coming.

In celebration, we’re launching our new skate deck with Shut NYC on our online shop, and a winsome t-shirt to boot.

See you on the streets.
