Good Fun

The Medusa Lounge is a really great place to go if you looking for fun. Great music, great dancing…the drinks are really great. Overall this is just a fun place with a great ambiance.

What happened to this place???

WOW! I came to Medusa Lounge for the first time like a year ago for a friend's birthday and it was awesome! The music was cool, the people were cool, and the waitress was really great and gave us good service. Now the place is full of weirdos and the music (if you want to call it that) is terrible! I brought friends and was so embarrassed! I asked the bartender what happened and she said she didn't know because she was new. (She must be new to bartending also because the service was horrible.) I felt like I walked into the twilight zone and don't plan on returning EVER! So unless you're a freak who likes ear-piercing sounds coming out of a Dj booth, and bartenders that don't know how to make anything, I'd skip this place at all costs.

Cool, but not what I expected.

I checked this place out at their official website and it's a bit misleading. The website makes it seem like a very nice restaurant, but I went during a weekend and it's 100% lounge - no tables and not typical menu. They simply have couches and ottomans set up around the perimter of the place and have a shortened ""cocktail menu"". I know ""lounge"" is in the name, but if you check out their website and images posted online you will see what I'm talking about.

The waitress was nice, but way over worked. She had to tend to about 30 or more guests so the service wasn't too hot. I will say that pretty much their entire staff is really cool.

I'm not much of a club person mostly because of the crowd that you find at such places, but this place had a really chill and diverse crowd with ppl that simply wanted to have a good time.

I will probably be going back now that I have a better feel for the place....oh, and the music was really cool.

Nicest People Ever

I set up a birthday party for my boyfriend with Medusa's people. They hooked us up with lots of saved space and they constantly checked with me to make sure everything was OK. Even when our friends arrived late in the evening when there was a line, the bouncer let them in.
Inside the decor was cool with red couches and crazy chandliers. The dance floor was rockin' on the Friday night and the place was packed with fun people. It was a wonderful place for a party and I can't thank Mitch and his staff enough.

Manda the Bartedner is HOT!!

Checked this place out a few times with a group of friends, first time in we opened a tab with the blonde bartender who introduced herself as Manda, she was cool to us all night and remembered our drink order everytime one of us came back up to the bar. After the third time she knew everyone's name!! Did i mention the place was PACKED! She was super quick and she seemed to be having fun, she was play ninja fighting with the barback, the girl can kick HIGH! The place itself is really different all the stained glass and velvet, the drinks aren't overpriced either so it doesnt hurt your pocket. The back dance floor has a whole different atmosphere and we learned there is another set of bathrooms back there.. The food overall is not all that great but the sweet potato fries are worth having twice. There was a big mix of people there and plenty of girls to talk to. Really had a great time, have been back several times and was shocked that Manda remembered my name and my drink. If you want a non-Hollywood kind of bar but still like nice surroundings i would check this place out. Thanks.

Great crowd, good music. Location is a conversation starter!!

I checked this place out recently with a few of my girlfriends and we loved it. The inside is so beautiful and nothing like I have ever seen before. The crowd is cool and mature - everyone's out to have a good time. Drinks were good, but the food was a little pricey for what was served, we thought. The music was excellent. Overall, we had a really good time here and would definitely go back.

Beautiful and Fun, but Watch your car!

This place is gorgeous- absolutely beautiful to look at. The decor is gothic but not in the black-hair-dye sense. The staff is incredibly helpful, which I experienced firsthand planning my birthday party there. I reserved an area for my friends to gather and we were treated exceptionally well.

The drinks were the usual Hollywood prices, the music was, well, strange, and the dance floor was fun once we had some drinks in us. This bar could use more bathrooms and a smoking area so people don't have to stand out front.

Valet parking is only $5, but two (TWO!) of my friends who valeted had their cars broken into. WATCH OUT.

Amazing on the eyes

I brought my sister here who lives out of town and I had never been here.
The place is easy to find due to the huge lions outside as well as red lit up medusa.
They had valet for $5, but about 10ft. over is a side street you can park on for free.
We got there about 10, it was quiet, relaxed, and a lot of seats were open.
The place is absolutely amazing with its never ending decor, with always something to talk of.
Whether it be the ginormous chandelier's, the stained glass windows, the beautiful details are really amazing.
Only one bathroom, which is always annoying when you have to wait in line for a one holer.
By 11:00 the place was hopping with the most incredible characters.
It felt like being in london, with a dash of hipster, a dash of normal, a dash of indie.
Most ladies were wearing dresses, but by no means do you feel strange just wearing jeans.
I can't believe how much the men were into fashion.
If you like to people watch, on a nice big couch with tufits, gargoyles above your head, awesome music that sounds like early 60's redone in a modern way, go here.
Go here just for the atmosphere, and to look at all the amazing things.
Good mixture of men and women.
The bartenders were all sweet, but by 11:00 there was a large line at the bar.
Be patient, be nice.
The only thing that sucked was we had friends meeting us there, who came later and they could not get in due to the huge line out the door and they weren't allowing anymore people in.
Thats when we paid our tab of 5 drinks,($40) and left for the night.
At least 3 more people got to get in!
