Beijing bar scene staple. One of my favorite places to drink. It’s small but quality drinks. Friendly staff. And it’s super cozy.

Charmingly hidden inside the hutong, this place is well worth a short walking in the dark and narrow hutong not so far away from Gulou street station (line 2). Make your way in the night through the dim lights of Bei Luo Gu Xiang, find...More

A very good cocktail bar hidden in the hutong, un Beilougoxian. We went there in the beginning of the week. So not too much people, which was great, like that, it was easy to discuss. Very good cocktails and menu

Mai is a hidden bar in hutong in Beiloguxian but not too difficult to find. Small terrace outside and cosy design. The last but not the least, the cocktails are very good. A great place in Beijing

We went there with another couple which lives in Beijing, we couldn't get there if it wasn't for them! We loved the Hutong area even at night. This bar in particular is little but nice and cozy, plus the cocktails were really good!

All the cocktails you will take are good and made with love. Every time I went to mai, I never was disappointed. It's a very intimate place, with a small terrace. And most of the time you will have no problem to find a table

Firstly, I can't believe I hadn't found this bar sooner, it's right up my alley (or should I say hutong?). For anyone that likes great cocktails, a massive selection of whisky, or just a chilled out and somewhat classy establishment, this is the place for...More
