Who is Leo?
Leo is short for leogryph, which is the symbol of Asia Society. Leogrypyhs are mythical creatures, combining the physical features of a lion and the mythical creature known as a griffin. A pair of Nepalese leogryphs residing onsite at Asia Society were the inspiration for the design of our logo. Throughout Asia, pairs of leogryphs often stand guard outside Buddhist temples, believed to protect the temple and those seeking enlightenment from evil forces.

The Leo Café is located in the Asia Society's Garden Court, a beautiful setting for almost any type of event, from elegant receptions and dinners to artistic salons and corporate soirées. Host your next event at one of New York City's premier event venues.
