SHOPPING TOP TECH
Looking for the best technology in town? We’ve got you covered, with great tech-savvy experiences splattered around our neighbourhood.
If you haven’t yet walked into the new iStore on the corner of Dock Road Junction, then we reckon you do so – even if just to view the original brick walls and wooden ceiling of the former Queen’s Hotel, built around the 1880s. This is a destination store where one-on-one customer service is just as impressive as the latest Apple drops.
Samsung’s new location on the lower level opposite Woolworths is where you’ll find all of the brand’s latest equipment displayed. Its 2020 showcase includes the 75-inch 8K QLED Smart TV, Eco Bubble Technology washing machines and the latest Galaxy Buds and watches.
Meander over to the Silo District for a sound experience like no other at Bang & Olufsen. Relax in comfy seats as the noise from the speakers is pumped around you through an epic surround-sound system. Here’s where you’ll find the most elegant home speakers with the best sound quality.
For more tech needs, head to Audiolens for flycams, telescopes, binoculars and cameras. It’s been operating since 1965, and knows its business! Or pop into Incredible Connection for software, gaming consoles, a variety of computer and cellular options, and top tech support for back-ups, virus removal and installations. The bonus here is the cell-phone charging station available to you while you wait.

After the success of 100 Beautiful Things, where we celebrated creativity, compassion, ingenuity and resilience, through projects, products, ideas and experiences from around the country, we’re bringing this idea of celebration closer to home. Through 100 Beautiful Experiences, we’ll be looking at incredible moments and delights that are available right on our doorstep. Photographed and illustrated by a group of young South African talents, many of our experiences are unique to our hood and can be found nowhere else on the planet!
Every visit to the V&A Waterfront is an opportunity to discover a different part of the city, learn about our heritage, source the best products, dine on the most exquisite fare and connect with friends and family in a safe and happy environment. While we’re only sharing 100 Beautiful Experiences with you, we know you’ll find many more each time you visit, and look forward to hearing of your experiences too.
