It's a nice place with a big beer garden. There's food but we didn't try it. There seems to be live music here often but we came on a Sunday night and it wasn't on.

The prices of the local beers are decently priced in comparison to nearby pubs. It has a fun atmosphere if you're just looking to chill and drink with a group or alone. Most nights they have a live band playing and it's really loud so don't count on carrying an intense conversation. It's located a lot of other places though... More

A very nice, backpacker atmosphere. A jar of beer (1,5L) is only 75 pesos and they also have international beers (Duvel!). Order the nachos mixtes and you won't have to eat for 3 days, I've never seen such a mountain of nachos before!

We are old folks and were getting ready to leave as the place started to revup for the live band. The crowd is late twenties, early thirties and looked like they were ready for a fun time. Service was good, food was the Yucatan version of pub food (deep fried).Smoking seems still to be cool in Merida with this age... More

Definitely a backpacker haunt the Mayan Pub is big pub located close to the main square. All the usual offerings including reasonably cheap beer, ok looking grub, a pool table and live music at the weekend. To be fair they have a pretty decent selection of Mexican (craft and commercial) and International beers. The night we were there the live... More

From the front entrance, this place looks like your average bar in Mexico... but walk through to the outside area and you will not be disappointed. We were there on a Thursday night and the live music was fantastic! The live band included a violinist, cellist, guitarists, drummers, saxophonist and a couple of different singers, and they played folk music.... More

I liked this pub a lot - I have passed 2 evenings there and it was great! Don't stop at the first bar near the entrance, if you don't want to play pool - go to the garden - it is marvellous!

Walking in the front of this bar it may seem underwhelming... keep walking and you will be pleasantly surprised by the beer garden. Not to mention they also have live music later in the evening.

I have been going to the Mayan Pub off and on for about two years. When you get there make sure you go ALL the way to the back area, otherwise you might think the place is empty! It really gets rocking late, usually after 11 pm. But if you get there early you can relax, have a few drinks... More
