A night out at 44 Stanley

19 Jun 2024
One of our favourite Joburg attractions, most people know 44 Stanley as a place you need to visit by day, starting with a coffee at Bean There or a delicious breakfast at Salvation Café. Then leaving plenty of time to browse the stores for art, clothing, ceramics, houseplants, fresh flowers, and other delights. But we’ve discovered another side to 44 Stanley Ave – nightlife.
