A good place during summer

This is really a loud sleazy rock bar with mostly young people, not bad at all but it is what it is, However....... During summer they have outdoor tables at a prime location... read more

Cheap bar, but it is awful.. I will not go there ever, it looks very bad . Maybe you should try other Lyon bars.

It's cheap that's the only positive but it's a bad place, the staff are rude, the doorman thinks he's rambo. Toilets are disgusting,It's just dire.

We spent in Medusa a couple of hours with friends and we drank a couple of cheap beers... I think those where the cheapest in the old town in Stockholm. The place is big and the decoration is cool.

This is a good place to have a few beers, but I didn't find it to be very "hardcore". Upstairs the music is just popular modern. Downstairs is much cooler. It looks like a cave and it is spacious. The day I went the music ranged from indie to hip hop. Cool, but missing more attitude.

We had been encouraged to visit by the positive reveiws and, even though it didn't look too tempting by day we were really glad we stopped by in the evening. Great music (a bit soft and old for one of us who's really into rock but perfect for me), a fun lively atmosphere and good cheap beer. The table next... More

very cheap beer prices for stockholm which is about 4 dollars a beer. However I had my DLSR camera stolen while I was there by a swede. The staff weren't helpful at all and showed no sympathy.

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
