Visited the Alien Bar in Gruyeres, Switzerland. Creepy and Awesome!

I remember when I found this bar. Imagine a little village located on a small hill, streets paved with slabs, a castle on top of the hill, old typical houses and suddenly BAM! You find the Giger bar in a corner and its museum in front of it. One of the most unexpected encounters I've ever had.

Forget that, how's the cheese?! :D

the Giger bar

This seems like a much more accurate name for it.

I made a documentary with Giger back in 2007 that took place in the museum and bar. It really is an amazing place!

There's another Giger bar in Chur, check it out. I agree that the museum is amazing.

The Giger Bar (proper usage here) was just a great place to hang out and have a beer. The museum is across the small cobblestone street and is even more creepy and more awesome than the bar (except for the beer). The cheese is much less creepy and much more tasty. Also, three miles away in the little hamlet of Broc is the Calliers (now Nestle) chocolate factory - tastier still. All nestled in some beautiful countryside hills.

I was there just last weekend.

I didn't even bother with the bar.

Not quite, HR Giger owned it and made everything in it. So expensive possibly but not nearly as much as having someone design it for you.

This reminds me of the Bone Cathedral in Kutna Hora near Prague.
