End the year on a high note and party at the first ever SUMMER NIGHTS at 44. Celebrate with late-night shopping, great food and artisanal drinks as 44 Stanley raises a glass to the end of 2016.
44 Stanley, Joburg’s premium urban precinct, will stay open on Friday, 2 December from 5pm until late, delivering an authentic, lively shopping, eating and drinking experience. With music playing throughout the interleading courtyards and unique events including a pop-up botanical gin and wine bar and a chocolate tasting at the newly opened Chocoloza, there isn’t a better place to to be.
Also, sample a selection of Africa’s finest fair trade at Been There’s first ever brew bar, or head over to the newly opened Pichulik to shop from their standout, sell-out, summer range, while sipping a celebratory drink. And not forgetting the delicious fresh fare offered by all Stanley’s restaurants – Three Mary’s, Salvation Cafe, L8 Cafe, Il Giardino, Stanley Beer Yard and Vovo Telo will all be open for al fresco dining. Just make sure you book a table.
