Ovolo Southside might scream more NYC’s Meatpacking District, than Wong Chuk Hang, Hong Kong, but this former warehouse has deep roots in the area’s industrial past. Paul Kember of KplusK Associates was the architect that brought Girish Jhunjhnuwala’s vision to life. Paying homage to its industrial past, the hotel showcases art installations and graffiti throughout much of its public spaces. On the fourth floor, CIRQLE serves up a blended cuisine within a modern slash industrial, bistro environment.
The Lo Lounge is a multipurpose space that lets guests kick it 24/7 with snacks, drinks, and games. G.I.G. is located on the ground floor and features an 18 meter video wall that’s meant to blow the guest’s minds upon arrival. ABOVE is the hotel’s edgy rooftop bar that boasts some of the street artwork they’re known for. Guests can choose from six different room types in the 162-room hotel. The Corner rooms give you 180° panoramic views! Each of the rooms has its own unique shape since the architect chose to maintain the warehouse’s original structure.Heavy-duty fixtures and fittings work seamlessly with the concrete walls.
