Night Out in Pogoni

PLATEIAVISSANIIn the area of Pogoni you have many alternative entertainment options. In winter you can visit one of the coffee bars in the area while during summer the local festivals and events initiate you in the sense of local tradition. When you are in Pogoni you are strongly advised to go along and live as “dopios” (as the people that live here). For example, in winter evenings inhabitants are directed in local cafes around and a small feast is always on with the accompaniment of local musicians, rich local dishes and plenty of tsipouro.

Almost every night an event is scheduled in the villages of Pogoni mainly to honor Orthodox saints like Agia Paraskevi in Kryoneri village (26th of July). This is also a fantastic opportunity to have a closer look of what a celebration means in Pogoni.
If you still insist on visiting a bar for cosmopolitan entertainment you will have to drive about 30 minutes far to the city of Ioannina and choose one of the many entertainment spots.
