Point of Interest
“In the heart of Sandton lies The VIP Room, catering for the casual and elegant through amazing service, great music, and an excellent ambience. And whether you want something light to drink or something that will knock you off your feet, they have it all. Go and dance the night away at Joburg’s most ostentatious venue.”

Restaurant
“For nearly three decades, Pappas on the Square has provided a cultural dining experience. It all started with the unveiling of Pappas in Kelvin in October 1987, by founder Athos Pappas, who saw the need for a family friendly Mediterranean offering, with a leaning towards home-style Cypriot and Greek cuisine. Pappas was the first restaurant to serve the popular steak on a hot rock. Not afraid to adapt to the trends and shifting times, Pappas moved four times over the last 20 years, before settling in Sandton, the business hub of Africa, in 1997.”
