When these Capetonians visit the bustle of Joburg there’s one spot we always go back to – 44 Stanley in Milpark. A collection of quality purveyors, restaurants and galleries that offer visitors a range of wares. Stop for breakfast, lunch or dinner at one of the several eateries, grab a pint at Stanley Beer Yard or browse the bookshops, stores and art galleries. Arty and hip simultaneously, it reminds us of home – but with Jozi flair.
44 Stanley is a series of industrial 1930’s buildings, now developed into a collection of speciality health and beauty, food, fashion, furniture and showrooms. Meander through the shady arcades and courtyards savouring the architecture and choice selection of stores. The ambience is relaxed; a friendly and refreshing mix of quintessential Johannesburg.
With stores like Anatomy Design, Vendange, The Atelier, Guillotine, Vintage Cowboys, Sirkel and Tinker Tailor, you have an assortment of stylish goods to keep you exploring long into the day. Stop for coffee at Bean There before browsing one of the several heirloom and antique stores, offering a selection of goods you can’t find elsewhere.
Lunch in the shaded courtyard at either Stanley Beer Yard for a hot dog or burger, or under a corrugated ceiling at Vovo Telo. Imbibe a glass of chilled wine, snack on a shared pizza or down a local craft beer. Summer or winter in Joburg, 44 Stanley is the place to visit.
