PMQ is a creative venture in downtown Hong Kong combining a cool market vibe with a multi-function art and design space. Specifically, this multi-storey block of small boutiques brings together the best creatives and artisans working in Hong Kong today, with the added benefit of pop-up markets on weekends featuring live music, craft beer and a vibrant, fun-loving atmosphere.
PMQ Hong Kong is the place to find clothes, fashion jewellery, homeware and stylish arts and crafts of all kinds. On our last visit we found some gorgeous modernist lamps, bought too many pairs of funky footwear from a local shoemaker and had our fill of some German bratwurst sausages and French style pastries.
Based inside the former Police Married Quarters of the Hollywood Road Police Force (hence the PMQ name), this is the place to pick up some cool, one-of-a-kind items, either for yourself or as a unique gift. It’s fair to say there is nothing else quite like PMQ in Hong Kong, especially when you compare it to the large night markets in Kowloon such as Temple Street or Ladies Market.
Over 100 young, local entrepreneurs are using the design space inside PMQ, which has been developed as a place to showcase local designers to an international market as well as creating a cool place to hang out. Exhibitions change constantly but you might see photography, fashion, or fine art on display in the large courtyard. There are also some permanent bars, bakeries and coffee shops on the premises. Our pick is Aberdeen Street Social, run by local culinary celebrity and Michelin star Chef Jason Atherton – it’s great for drinks or for dining on Chef Atherton’s tasty tapas.
PMQ is located on Aberdeen Street in Central. It is easy to find: just walk along Hollywood Rd. from the Mid-Levels Escalator and find it on the corner of Aberdeen Street.
