H R Giger

H R Giger, yes that artist who designed the alien and has a very bizarre imagination, now has a bar, uh, two bars.

I'm moving to Switzerland, home of the most mind blowing bar in existence. I'd need to bring a change of underwear. Seriously. I'm not kidding.

Apparently, Gruyères, Switzerland is host to The Museum HR Giger Bar, a creepy drinking experience that takes place at the Museum HR Giger (where I'm sure you'll also see tons of Alien concept art loaded with sci-fi boners). Another Giger Bar is located in Chur, Switzerland.

Above you'll see a brief video of the bar by z0wye and inside is a flickr photoset by Alejandro Pérez

The Museum Bar, which took two years to complete, opened its doors with a
ribbon cutting ceremony on April 12th, 2003, to a select group of invited friends, artists, collectors, coworkers, and members of the media. Guests began arriving to the long anticipated event the day before, taking the opportunity to tour the museum beforehand. The next morning, the population of the small village of 300 inhabitants, literally doubled in a matter of hours, with the arrival of devotees from countries near and far, from Austria, Germany, Hungary, Italy, France, Spain, Czechoslovakia, Chile, Israel, and the United States. The schedule of events for the day included another opening in the H.R. Giger Museum Gallery for the Swiss artist Martin Schwarz, the on-site printing of two limited edition prints to commemorate the day, speeches and dedications, ending the day with a special dinner, followed by nighttime projections of Giger’s artwork on the façade of the museum.

If I was an alcoholic, this would be paradise. If I were sober, this would be the place to fall off the wagon.
