nightlife

Medusa combines the entertainments of a restaurant, cabaret and nightclub into a single extravagant drinking and eating den. This venue fits well in a city known for its exclusive entertainment options: no other similar establishments offer the mix of live entertainment with a restaurant and club. Located in the Palm Beach neighborhood of Cannes, Medusa has thrilling views of the sea from its outdoor terrace seats. Inside, the d├ęcor and lighting are dark and dramatic, a call back to sensuous and slightly scandalous cabaret spaces of the past. Chandeliers, velvet surfaces and rich furnishings add elegance to the entertainment: enjoy a magic act, artistic performance, or be seduced by the cabaret entertainers.

Tips

The cocktail bar is a standout attraction at Medusa, an intimate and inviting space staffed by master mixologists. These talented professionals are inspired to create both tested classics and handmade cocktails with a modern twist. The unique scene adds to the drinking enjoyment.

Last Word

The food is an inventive fusion of Japanese Nikkei and traditional Greek influences, an unlikely combination that works thanks to the skills of head chef Yannis Kioroglou. The sushi menu is large and packed with familiar favorites, like smoked salmon oshi and tuna belly. Freshly caught fish dishes are extensive, as are premier meat dishes including grilled lamb chops with a butter ponzu coriander chili and honey glazed duck breast with strawberry hoisin salsa.
