A fantastic find of the main strip of Brighton. Full of atmosphere, warm and cosy and the cocktails are amazing. Bar staff are welcoming, accommodating and make a great cocktail. Totally worth a trip here especially on a Thursday open mike night.

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.
