MUSEUM HR GIGER BAR

I'll be in Switzerland next week and plan on having a gimlet at the Giger Bar, the most beautiful bar in the world.

My friend Billy (aka DJ Gemhunter) told me about it a while back. It blew my mind.
Here is why...







The interior of the otherworldly environment that is the H.R. Giger Museum
Bar is a cavernous, skeletal structure covered by double arches of vertebrae
that crisscross the vaulted ceiling of an ancient castle. The sensation of being in this extraordinary setting recalls the tale of Jonah and the whale, lending the feel of being literally in the belly of a fossilized, prehistoric beast, or that
you have been transported into the remains of a mutated future civilization.

  4. I was convinced that no one would put this kind of effort and I-guess-Guadian detail into design based on simple economics... so refreshing
