If there is one trend that is taking over at present it is pop up stores in Hong Kong. This is a concept that has been around for quite a while now worldwide, especially in places like New York and London; however, it has really started to gather pace in Hong Kong and is definitely something that is here to stay.Gone are the days when you need to go to a restaurant to tuck into delicious, healthy food, no longer do you need to party in a club to enjoy a pint of beer.
For those who are unaware, a pop-up business is essentially a business that will make use of spaces at various events or locations for a limited period of time. They are defined by change and reinvention. This flexibility gives them the ability to capitalise on various opportunities, whilst also having the benefit of low rents and start-up costs. Now you know a little bit more about it, let’s take a look at three of the best pop up places in Hong Kong
Secret Ingredient is a new concept that gives customers the opportunity to order food online in Hong Kong. Their mission is to make cooking fun and easy.

Secret Island pop-up events are incredibly popular. Organised by Hushup Events, these events are designed on the model of a Western festival; entertainment and interaction is the primary focus. Participants camp overnight and there is a real sense of community, which is unusual as you will be with people you have only just met; however that is what makes it so special. These pop-up events are already exceptionally popularattracting hundreds and hundreds of people.
Last but not least, we have Botellon, which means ‘big bottle’ in Spanish. It is a cultural phenomenon that is basically an outdoor drinking event where everyone de-
scends on a particular area with a bottle in hand. Aside from this, all that you need is a good attitude. Get to know new people, enjoy the music and have a good time. In Spain these parties have attracted thousands of people. Hong Kong is yet to match the size of Spain, yet these events are becoming more and more popular, so it’s only a matter of time.
