Time Out says

Dubbing itself as a 'Playground for All', Central Market is a wet-market-turned-cultural-hub that plays host to a slew of dining and shopping venues, ranging from specialty restaurants to local fashion boutiques and bric-a-brac stores. A wide range of educational and cultural activities are often held at the market in partnership with different institutions and organisations in Hong Kong. Original architectural elements of the market have been preserved, while contemporary designs have been incorporated into the complex, including bi-folding doors on the ground floor, a large central piazza equipped with projection and sound systems for events and performances, as well as a 2,500sq ft multi-functional event space ideal for open forums, exhibitions, and cultural performances. The building's grand staircase – fitted with a motion sensor system and an LED projection wall – has also adopted a semi-open space for various community performances.
