5 out of 5 stars

A nautical-themed bar serving seriously strong classic cocktails.

What should I drink? A Margarita.

Minimalist, almost bare, the only decoration at Medusa is pirate-related: think sea monsters encased in the wall, wormwood tables and rocking chairs lit dimly lit. At the back, there’s even a quirky little cave where you can smoke by candlelight.

Cocktails are beautifully mixed, with the focus on classics like margaritas and negronis, but there’s no scrimping on measure here. After a few of those, plus a draught (€6.50) or bottle beer (€4-5) and you’ll be surfing the wave of boozing. There’s little in the way of food, so stick with that age-old moral: eating, here, is cheating.
