The Asia Society is located in Admiralty on Hong Kong Island at the former explosives magazine site of the old Victoria Barracks. Steeped in history, cultural significance and natural beauty, the site was originally built by the British Army in the mid-19th century for explosives and ammunition production and storage. Following its restoration, this heritage site was successfully transformed into a cultural, artistic and intellectual hub. It now offers a broad variety of lecture programs, performances, film screenings and exhibitions to the community.
The center contains one multipurpose hall, two meeting rooms, two outdoor venues and one theatre. The largest venue is The Hong Kong Jockey Club Hall, holding up to 350 people. There are two meeting rooms, one with a capacity of 20 people and the other 50. Two outdoor venues can cater for groups of 120 and 150 people. There is also a theatre that can seat up to 107 people.
