Eat Central by Black Sheep

Art Central is delighted to announce that the esteemed hospitality team Black Sheep will be curating Eat Central, the Fair’s pop-up dining terrace for the duration of its opening hours. Eat Central will showcase a selection of the finest eateries in town, including Chôm Chôm, Maison Libanaise, Butter Cookies, Messina and an exclusive preview of Jean-Pierre before its official launch in Hong Kong later this year. Operating throughout the Fair, Eat Central stands as the ultimate dining destination during Hong Kong Art Week.

Soho House

Soho House Hong Kong hosts an exclusive pop-up bar at Art Central 2024.

The bar’s design and artwork are created by TAXA, a talented Japanese artist based in Hong Kong. TAXA’s artwork features a portrait of a woman, framed by a veil of flowers, including plumeria, hibiscus, and bougainvillea, representing Hong Kong’s natural surroundings.

This collaboration highlights Soho House’s commitment to showcasing regional artists. TAXA’s unique style captures the essence of Hong Kong’s art scene, complementing the vibrant atmosphere of Art Central and reflecting Soho House’s artistic spirit.


At the illy space of Art Central Hong Kong, visitors will be able to taste the illy blend and discovering the latest illy Art Collection signed by artist Lee Ufan. With his distinctive minimalistic style, Lee Ufan used the iconic cups that have transformed an everyday object into a blank canvas over the years, attracting renowned international artists. He used these cups to convey his idea of a meeting, that specific moment when the brush meets the canvas in time and space. The illy Art Collection cups feature a single bold brushstroke to maintain the necessary space for various elements to interact and create a connection between the white porcelain and the artwork.
