Situated on level 10 of ODYCY Malta in Qawra, Malta, the Medusa Skybar is a unique concept inspired by Greek mythology and female empowerment.

The bar’s focus on high-end champagnes and signature cocktails makes it the perfect destination for the discerning traveller looking for a one-of-a-kind experience.

The Mythical Inspiration

At the heart of this elevated sky bar lies the inspiration drawn from one of Greek mythology’s most enigmatic figures—Medusa. Renowned for her mesmerizing gaze and the intricate tales woven around her, Medusa’s mystique has endured through the ages. Often depicted as a symbol of power, beauty, and enigma, her story serves as the cornerstone for the bar’s ethos – with female empowerment being at its core.

A Mythical Journey Through Ambiance and Decor

Stepping into Medusa Sky Bar is akin to embarking on a mythical odyssey. The ambiance exudes an aura of mysticism, with carefully curated elements that pay homage to the legend. The interplay of lighting, decor, and architectural design whispers echoes of the enigmatic Greek gorgon while embracing contemporary sophistication.

The décor intricately weaves Medusa’s essence into every detail—the subtle serpent motifs, the mesmerizing light installations reminiscent of her serpentine locks, and the beguiling bust of Medusa herself out on the terrace, that stands at over two metres tall.

Libations Fit for the Gods

Of course, the main attraction of any sky bar is the drinks, and Medusa Skybar does not disappoint. The bar’s champagne list features an impressive selection of high-end labels. If champagne isn’t your thing, the signature cocktail menu is equally impressive, featuring a range of unique and creative concoctions. The Gorgon’s Gaze, for example, is a blend of gin, Martini Bianco, adding a kick to it with ginger syrup, passion fruit puree and citrus, while the Serpent’s Kiss is a refreshing mix of gin, dark rum, fresh mint, citrus, and strawberry foam. Every drink is expertly crafted by the talented team of mixologists, ensuring that each sip is a true experience.
