An anchor of Sacramento’s R Street, Ace of Spades continues to flourish
BY EMILY ZENTNER
When Sacramento’s Ace of Spades opened in 2011, it quickly became a staple of the city’s growing music scene. But to people like Arii Filipponi, it’s much more than that.
“I have grown up attending Ace of Spades,” Filipponi, 22, said. “When I walk in the doors I just get this warm feeling with the decor and the venue in general. A lot of the people who attend shows at Ace of Spades are people who attend a lot of shows in Sacramento, so it’s kind of like a family.”
For Filipponi, it’s the combination of opportunities given to local bands and the booking of more popular artists that makes the venue special.

Sacramento was lacking in live music venues before Ace of Spades came along. They've since proved there's big demand for entertainment venues targeted towards midsize audiences.
