  • Visitor Information

Underground cave club The Medussa is renowned in it's league as a top music venue, dance studio, gallery and nightclub. The music varies from R'n'B and Hip-Hop, to euphoric dance and techno to salsa dancing. The Rumberos night encompasses all of these genres, with salsa lessons and R'n'B and Hip-Hop music on the side, the night is different and innovative. The bar is underground in more than a geographical sense, accepting cash only at the bar and showcasing new talent with live music. The club with it's fingers in lots of arty pies is based in the heart of Brixton, and is allegedly famous amongst the capitals 'trance heads'. Open until six in the morning and open to only over 21 year olds, the hidden club has a niche of customers, the majority probably dedicated followers who are there for the cramped hard core party lifestyle.
