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.

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.
