Ace Eat Serve -- 501 E. 17th Ave., Denver
2012 Denver Mayor's Design Awards winner. Category: Eye-Catcher!
A creative indoor and outdoor transformation of the former Storz Garage at the northeast corner of 17th and Pennsylvania, Ace enlivens an active mixed-use neighborhood by adapting an iconic building to a lively place for people to relax and have fun. Josh and Jen Wolkon’s restaurant and ping-pong hall offers Asian-inspired dishes and ten ping-pong tables, in a unique setting which reuses salvaged airplane parts, shipping containers, wooden pallets, support beams for seating
and refurbished chairs from a shuttered restaurant.
