Event Description

The Hot Pot Lab, NYC’s first interactive food themed pop-up art gallery, is providing visitors a non-traditional way to experience traditional Chinese hot pot. As food is the most significant trademark of culture, we invite you to take part in the cultural melting pot NYC through a unique interactive food experience.

The experience includes artistic installations, food coupons, exclusive gift shop as well as indoor and outdoor photo opportunities. Due to the current situation, only one group is allowed at the same time in the installation area to offer a more private, clean and safe space. Tickets are limited every day and we strongly encourage you to book your tickets/experience in advance.

This exhibition is proudly supporting Food Bank For New York City, the city’s largest hunger relief NGO during COVID-19 by donating one dollar per ticket sold.
