Los Angeles Opening: Ammo at the Hammer Museum

Though the name sounds like a ’70s progressive rock band, Ammo at the Hammer is the Hammer Museum’s latest addition: a cafe.

The first outpost of Amy Sweeney’s legendarily hip Highland Avenue restaurant, this Ammo offers seasonal sandwiches, market salads, and a generous happy hour – all of which can be enjoyed in the museum’s bright, tree-lined courtyard, which the café spills into. Perfectly in synch with the museum’s new Hammer Contemporary Collection (Kara Walker, Ed Ruscha, Barbara Kruger, etc), the Ammo is styled by LA design collective Commune, and is open for lunch, brunch, through happy hour now, with extended hours expected by December.
