Kubrick

For a beautiful, carefully curated selection of books in an uber cool setting, head to Kubrick in Yau Ma Tei. This cute little book store has a range of art and design books, travel and cookery books, specialty magazines, novels and more. It’s the perfect place to hang out on a Sunday afternoon as it has its own cafe. Round the corner you’ll find stationery, records, and a DVD store, and even a cinema (one that features independent films!). We love the creative, chilled-out atmosphere and friendly staff.Kubrick is a must-visit for book lovers.
