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.

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.

Easily missed as tucked away in a side road just off the seafront. As you walk in you are surrounded by lovely lights and great music. Friendly bar man and great customer service. The only thing that I didn't like were the dirty toilets.
