- Address14 Kundu Night Market, Kunming
Western-style bar in the Kundu nightlife district. Look for the square in the middle of Kundu night market - The Mask is on the edge of it.
I am not an employee of the mask. Numerous other users on, and the administrators of, GoKunming know that is the case.
I just think the Mask is a nice place with nice staff and owners and reasonably priced drinks. But I'm not such a big EDM fan so I tend to go only for live music or when a group of friends is headed there.
I also think it's a very safe place for people who don't invite trouble upon themselves—certainly safer than many of the surrounding establishments.
I would suggest that the most recent one star review should be removed as it contains zero review content, and is rather just a response to other reviewers.
@Chrispotter. Accusing people of taking money to post reviews you disagree with doesn't help your case. I'm certainly not a Mask employee. I was simply pointing out that the problems described in the original review affect the whole Kundu area and aren't specific to the Mask which is one of the best spots down there. If you go to an area full of drunk young people, expect trouble ftom time to time. Of course the comment from another reviewer that only "assholes" get attacked is ridiculous and frankly thuggish.
mask is a place you go if you just want to dance all night to dope DJs. @williamBlake do you seriously think your friends got brutally beaten "just for being laowai"？ that doesn't happen to the many of foriegners who go to Kundu all the time who dont act like assholes. the only foreigners who get beat up at kundu are way too drunk, aggressively hitting on girls who don't want them, and speak shit chinese. every story i story i have heard about foreigners getting beat up in kundu starts with them being a assholes. i hope your friends learned their lesson and stay away in the future
Completely disagree with the previous review. Yes, Kundu can be a rough place and bad things can happen at bars and nightclubs. ANYWHERE.
But in my experience, for years and years The Mask has provided top notch live music, good cheap drinks and decent bartenders.
Seems to me trouble finds those who look for it.
