It might be anything but tasteful when it comes to décor, but Medusa's Disneyland-ish look (ominous brass light fixtures, colorful stained-glass windows, wood carvings, gothic arches) makes a bold backdrop to the DJ beats supplied Thursdays and weekends, not to mention the ample meals and beer schooners served here. It used to be German restaurant Lowenbrau Keller, and bits of that festive, schnitzely feel remain, but the owners have definitely gone with the more-is-more mindset here and the adornments (much of it from movie sets) are more attention-grabbing than a head full of snakes.
