PMQ may still a fresh spot to some Hong Kong citizens; it may take me a few second if you ask me what it is- you can buy something that can never get in shopping malls, you can taste yummy cuisine which only provided here, you can join some fantastic activities that you can never imagine- what stuffs in PMQ is all kinds of extraordinary ideas about better life, now people mostly call this kind of place creativity center.
YOUNG and AVANT may be two key words of this place, but the building of PMQ actually has been standing in Central for more than a hundred years. Originally it was established as a school in 1889. Unfortunately the school was demolished during the World War Ⅱ. In 1951 the building was re-constructed to be the dormitory for Hong Kong Police. After 2000, the police moved out of the dorm and the building remained empty. In May 2014, the site was re-polished into a creativity hub called PMQ and reopen to the public.
Now over 100 creative enterprises and independent artists have been set up their business in PMQ, everyone is welcomed to visit their workshops and share any opinions about the design and products. In addition, many interesting activities are frequently held in PMQ. For instance, the Night Market is a flea market held at night selling all kinds of handcrafts; Leather product workshop is a beginner course for people who want to start to make their own leather wallets.
Canteens in PMQ are also recommended. Restaurants there keep updating their menu and provide some cuisine that you can never imagine cooked with organic and fresh ingredients.
No matter with friends or family, PMQ is exactly the place you would like to go on next weekend!
