The old police living quarters have been magically transformed into the hottest spot in town for designer boutiques and snazzy cocktails.
Located on Hong Kong Island, the Police Married Quarters, also known as PMQ, is a site with several layers of historical significance. Back in 1951, this large space was once home to families of the Hong Kong Police, it has now been revitalised as a hub for creative and design industries.
This trendy new cultural area has been reinforced, refurbished and upgraded for new uses. Now the area is known as the perfect location for fashion finds: around half of the tenants are in the creative design sectors; there are also great restaurants and art galleries to choose from.
A few highlights of the space include Kapok, a shop with a focus on Hong Kong designers specialising in accessories, contemporary fine arts gallery Art Projects, and UK chef, Jason Atherton’s third restaurant in Hong Kong, Aberdeen Street Social.
