Get to know a little about the Ace Hotel & Swim Club
Name: Ace Hotel & Swim Club
Tell us about Ace, how was it started?
Ace started in Seattle in 1999. The founders had no experience in hotels, but they wanted to build a place where people they knew — DJs, artists, magazine creators, designers,musicians — would want to come and stay. The desire was always to create a place that would be linked to local culture, a living part of the community — like the experience of staying with friends who are plugged in to the local scene. It's still the ethos that drives us.
What’s new with Ace?
Ace is ever-evolving and growing. In December, we opened a hotel in a century-old former YMCA in East Liberty, Pittsburgh. And then just recently, Ace Hotel New Orleans opened its doors in a 1928 Art Deco building, once home to Barnett's Furniture Store. Ace New Orleans has a live music venue Three Keys, a rooftop pool and bar Alto, a giant, beautiful restaurant Josephine Estelle and its own Stumptown Coffee Roasters — the first in the South. It's been really exciting getting to know Pittsburgh and New Orleans, two of the most vibrant and storied American cities.
Each Ace has pretty extensive art and music programming — gallery shows, live music performances, DJs, an artist in residence program — that's geared towards the local community. You can see what we're up to on our events calendar or on the blog.
How did you hear about Babes Ride Out?
The high desert is a popular destination for bikers, and we've been lucky enough to become friends with a few of them. In the past couple seasons, there’s been an unmistakable influx of female riders who we've found a lot in common with. We learned about Babes Ride Out through them, and knew right away we'd want to find some way to get involved.
What makes you interested in supporting Babes Ride Out?
If there's anything we love it's the open road and sisters doing it for themselves. Babes Ride Out fosters a community of rad women that we find inspiring — and in some ways, revolutionary. We want to support that in any way we can.
