Drinking & Nightlife
A large university student population keeps Ioannina lively. Cafes facing the lake by Plateia Mavili are popular for coffee. At night, crowds flock to the pedestrian strip of Kallari and Lord Byron, the old bazaar and silversmith area, and stoas (shopping passages) off Anexartisias also hold bars. Plateia Pargis has some scenic outdoor drinking spots too.
