One of the city’s first mega-malls, Times Square opened in 1994. Standing 16 storeys high, its designers were innovators of the ‘vertical shopping mall’ suited to spatially-challenged Hong Kong, deviating from the horizontal layout commonly found in Western countries. The building is now one of Causeway Bay’s most iconic, known for its large-scale exhibitions in its plaza and lobby.
The mall features over 230 stores spanning mid-range to high-end brands. The more affordable labels include Zara and Topshop, while luxury shops include Louis Vuitton, Kenzo, a.testoni, Diesel and Calvin Klein. Numerous sportswear brands live on 7/F, while 8/F is known for electronics and watches.
Conveniently, the Causeway Bay subway stop leads shoppers directly to the mall’s basement. For food, there are almost two dozen restaurants and cafés at varying price levels, most notably The Fat Pig by Michelin-starred chef Tom Aikens, not to mention the wealth of dining options in the mall’s immediate vicinity.
