About
A gem of a bar opened in March 2012 in the basement of 49 Staunton Street opposite Feather Boa..or via a backlane off Elgin Street next to Soiree. The old world feel of the handmade solid hardwood doors sets the tone for what is a film set of antiques, old prints, statues and detail. Styled around the righteous beheading of Medusa by Perseus, here you can relax in a beautiful setting with all discretion very guaranteed. Have an affair here, start an affair here, we have no cameras and no ID is required. You are allowed to enjoy yourself in Medusa. We have a great selection of classic cocktails, with some of our own like 2 Girl Guides in a tent or try one of our dessert baby cocktails, some great wines like the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, an Italian Pinot Grigio and a deep and delightful Malbec from the Mendoza hills. We have a good range of beers with Directors, Stella and San Mig. Come find us and enjoy. Happy Hour prices from 6-8pm on cocktails, beers, wines and house spirits.

An Evening drink
May 2018 • Couples
Came here for a drink with my wife. We missed happy hour which finished at 8 and as it was a Wednesday we were the only ones there. Cocktails are priced at around $110 (half price in happy hour) which is a standard price for a bar in this area. Very good choice of cocktails including some unique signature ones with an imaginative description! It is a small basement bar with a decor similar to the Feather Boa but more boudoir. Overall a pleasant bar to visit

Medusa bar
Apr 2018 • Couples
We came here after having a nice meal in Aqua in TST.
Nice bar but the night was totally ruined as my friend's drink was spiked and had his wallet and phone taken.
We came straight from the restaurant and it could have only have happened at Medusa.
I have a suspicion who the people were and how they worked together. I won't say who I think they were.
My friend who works for a company that has crew coming in to HK on a daily basis has been notified due to the seriousness of it.

I’m sorry that this happened to your friend. From what you are saying, this happened on the weekend of the 29/30th April. On duty were the owner and liquor license holder and 2 twenty year old girls. Admittedly they are both sweet, I can assure you that none of us would, have or ever will spike a drink. If it did happen, then it must have been someone sitting close to you. But that I don’t understand as we are not a Wanchai bar with working girls painting Rohypnol on their nipples. We look more like a favorite grandmother’s front room. Can you tell me what you had ? Are you sure your friend didn’t stop off somewhere else on the way home ? Every week someone either leaves a phone here or actually leaves it in a cab and thinks they left it here. We return every phone, wallet, computer and sweaty gym bag left here. I’m sure there is another explanation other than a spiked drink. Why didn’t you come in the next day and discuss it ? Please come and talk to Phil, the owner, anyway.

Not amazing
Jan 2017 • Friends
My friend was getting married in HK. I wanted to take her to a nice place for a few drinks couple of days before the date. So when I saw all these positive opinions about this place I have decided that it will be perfect, Well..we were very disappointed. Empty, not even one soul, barmaid looked not very interested to see new costumers. Place is small and not very nice..and a barking dog! what dog is doing in the bar?!

Thank you for your review. We apologize your experience at Medusa Bar wasn't satisfying. Our bar is small in space yet great in character, we are famous for amazing signature cocktails. Our busiest days are Thursday - Sunday. Overall we are a cozy place where people can relax and enjoy a chilled time. The dog, Fei Jai has more followers on social media than the bar itself. Come back anytime, we'd be happy to cheer you up :)

Small bar, hard to find but what an amazing place. Delicious cocktails and friendly service in what looks like a nice living room with art all around. Really well kept little secret worth discovering.

Atmospheric and Friendly
Sep 2017 • Friends
I've been in here a couple of times now and seen it busy and quiet and this place fits the bill either way. Very cosy and atmospheric with a good range of cocktails and short drinks. Nice range of music playing without being to intrusive. Friendly staff and reasonable value. Recommended!

Great cocktails, friendly atmosphere
Sep 2017 • Couples
Dropped in for a couple of cocktails and ended up chatting with the bartender and a couple of regulars for the whole evening. The cocktails are tasty and reasonably priced (for the area) and they certainly pack a punch.

It's in a basement, so there's no view, unless you count seeing double at the end of the night.

Great find
Jun 2017 • Couples
Fantastic quirky little bar with a great atmosphere. The cocktails were amazing; we tried a range recommended by the barmaid and loved each one. Try some of the signature cocktails...strong! The owner and barmaid were super friendly and conversational to boot.

One cocktail was brutal. Delicious, but boom. After 4, OMG.

Also say hi to Phil (owner) and his dog, as well as to the Russian barmaids.

Good night out !
