To experience shopping of a different kind, try Stanley 44 located in Milpark. Tucked away amidst a residential development, the center occupies an array of historic buildings from the 1930s. The redeveloped buildings sit in a tranquil neighborhood and house a collection of boutiques as well as restaurants and design studios. Despite the limited boutique selection, everything from fashion and furniture to food and technology has a presence. The food options are particularly impressive and offer great spaces to enjoy a bite. An excellent alternative to loud and glitzy shopping malls.
Queen Street belongs to the Kensington neighborhood which is one of the oldest suburbs in the city. As such, it still has a Victorian feel to it.

Formerly known as Sandton Square, this hub of city life in Johannesburg was renamed Nelson Mandela Square in 2004 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the birth of South Africa's democracy. Also the home of the Nelson Mandela statue, which was unveiled when the square was renamed, the square serves not only as a tribute to the famed president's historic efforts to bring peace to the nation, but also a focal point where visitors and locals alike can contemplate the country's turbulent past. An Italian-style piazza full of shops, restaurants, and galleries, located near world-class hotels and the city's financial district, this is a must-see for any visitor to Johannesburg.
