I've visited maya to hang out with friends. I did see once or twice some people dancing, but mostly it's just a place to find a table and have a drink. Draft beer is cheaper than some places. Low key. Seems like a place with quite a few regulars. Mostly foreigners with some Chinese too.

I go here for a beer with friends from time to time. Bar is mostly filled with foreigners. We use to sit outside as we are non-smokers and do not want to be bothered by cigarette smoke. Prices are cheaper than in the most of Hangzhou bars, e.g. Tiger or Tsingtao bier from tap costs 20RMB in Maya. They offer also some food but we never ate it because in the evenings BBQs are around which prepare fresh delicious dishes and bring to you.

Want to be in a near empty bar playing classic rock on a Friday night? Want to hangout with a few travellers who don't look like they are having much fun? And who'd rather just sit around in the dark? And one or two English-speaking Chinese try-hards? Want to be served by staff who look like they'd rather be asleep? And food that looks cooked in a microwave? Then this is the place for YOU!

This is one of the first bars that you will hear about from any of your foreigner friends and it is likely one of the first bars one will visit after they arrive in Hangzhou. It has inside and outside seating, but to be honest the place is just above a dive bar. Don't expect a toilet, you'll be squatting all evening if you're female. In my opinion, there are a lot of undesirable foreigners that frequent this place so I tend to just keep my distance. Definitely an ok place to visit on occasion, but I am not thrilled to go there often.

Maya is till the most relaxed bar in Hangzhou. Never a dull moment, always full even during the week and a nice relaxed atmosphere. Sometimes live music or DJ. My favorite Hangzhou hang-out after dinner.
