Medusa is a very proud bar and concentrates on customer satisfaction. It provides a wide range of alcohol for your every need. It is one of Brighton's many hidden treasures. It specializes in cocktails, exotic rums, shots, shooters, carefully selected wines, draught beers from all over the world and London Pride for the real ale buff. Medusa also specializes in a range of coffee's from a nice hot cappuccino to a cold refreshing frappe. For those whiskey lovers it offers a range from Jack Daniels, Monkey Shoulder, Makers Mark and more. Medusa is a contemporary bar with its own unique style all around you, the staff make you feel at home and are very warm and welcoming. They pride them selves on going that extra mile for customer service to keep the customers happy. George, the owner, has created a unique vibe with great music, relaxed quirky decor and a bar that rocks with a stage for live music, comedy and more. This is one of Brighton's oldest bars and has been running for over 30 years. It is easily recognisable with its small patio frontage where you can sit and watch the world go by. Situated amongst the many restaurants, it is a bar to enjoy before or after eating out. It's also a great place to relax and chill after a hard day. The Medusa is a popular venue with its regulars, local and Brighton students - new visitors are always given a warm welcome. The service is consistent and the house rules is the customers come first. Medusa is a playground for your senses and sanctuary for your soul

On a night of many bars and much booze Medusa Bar stood out for us as they best. Excellent cocktails,some good tunes,comfortable sofas to lounge around on. The age range of our party was from 18-62 and all enjoyed the vibe. Highly recommended.

The friendliest bar with a great choice of drinks and some wonderful music. Perfect end of the evening spot for a night cap. And they share their after eights with you if your lucky.
