Oddly enough we found this year (Early June) that Bar 1960 & Stoned Roses were busier than bar street itself, in previous years bar street has been the focus of the crowds but this year it was more around the square.
As for drink prices, a beer generally 3 Euros, 4 Euros in some of the bars in bar street, and cocktails 4.50 / 5.00 in the square and around 5 / 6 in bar street. With Spirits & Mixer around 4 Euros.
It is interesting to note that in many resorts the "Flow" of activity (Nightlife) tends to move slightly, in Tenerfie it did this, and again in Majorca where the activity has moved from the Greenparrot end to the area by BCM & the Hill.
In Kardamena the activity in the bars in June has previously been bar street, with Crossroads bar being well within the strip, now Crossroads is the last bar open and the ones beyond it have closed, as such in general bar street was quiet this year but the square was lively. I get the feeling that the centre of activity this year has moved more towards the square.
But of course when the hoards of 18 - 30 s arrive they may change things.
You will have a good time and my suggestion would be go to one of the bars in the square, have a drink and watch the people pass through, then spend 15 mins walking around the bars to see what suits your taste. Just don't go round to early as some don't get going till at least 10.30 / 11.00
