1 / 5

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.

Kubrick, Shop H2, Cinema Block, Prosperous Garden, 3 Public Square Street, Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon, Hong Kong, 2384 8929, www.kubrick.com.hk

Bookazine

Established all the way back in 1985, Bookazine boasts eight locations across Honkers, each offering a unique shopping experience! The largest, in Prince’s Building, stocks more than 900 magazine titles and over 20,000 books, in addition to a myriad of gifts (many of which are eco-friendly!). And if you’re on the hunt for best sellers and last-minute birthday cards, its Lyndhurst Terrace location holds a treasure trove of trinkets. If you’re running errands, there is likely a Bookazine somewhere nearby!

No longer just a simple bookstore, the Eslite brand encompasses an art gallery, a theatre and performance forum, and a ‘Gourmet Group’ dealing in wine, foodstuffs and professional kitchen equipment, all sharing the mantra to ‘bring good things to life’. The Hong Kong Eslite outpost is no exception: spanning three floors and more than 40,000 square feet of Hysan Place in Causeway Bay, the mega-store is a wonderland of printed offerings with hundreds of thousands of titles, more than one-third of which are English language!
