Plaka Taverna is located in the old Cleveland's Diner location at 410 E. Wilson Street.  We are four blocks east of the Capitol Square, and three blocks from Monona Terrace.

There is ample metered parking during the day (free after 6pm and on Sundays).  Also, there is free parking on the side streets (Franklin, Hancock).  In addition there is a parking lot available after 6pm, directly across the street from Plaka Taverna on the other side of the cement platform.  After 6pm and all day on weekends it is free.  Access this lot by turning down Hancock Street next to Rubin's Furniture.

** Update May 2, 2019:  Franklin Street (the side street near us, just before the Cardinal Apartments & Nomad Pub) is blocked from Wilson Street, due to construction.  HOWEVER, it can be accessed a block away, from Main Street.  Though Franklin is normally a one-way street, it has been made two-way temporarily.  Most drivers don't seem to know this, and have been avoiding this block of Franklin Street.  This means there is generally PLENTY OF PARKING on Franklin Street because people think it is blocked.  Just come at it the "wrong" way.
