Dining in heritage and history, AMMO, a restaurant and bar, opens at the new Asia Society Hong Kong Center in Admiralty. In a setting unmatched anywhere in Hong Kong, AMMO draws inspiration from the historical, architectural and cultural significance of its location. A former explosives magazine compound created by the British army in the mid-19th century, the site underwent a conversion by renowned New York-based architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien and is now the Asia Society Hong Kong Center.
“AMMO”, a slang term for ammunition, is also an acronym for Asia, Modern, Museum and Original, effectively communicating the overall culinary and dining experience. The phrase acknowledges the café’s Asian roots and identity, its thoroughly modern continental cuisine, its unquestionably unique position within a heritage landmark museum, and its original concept.
