HR Giger Museum Bar

I have always wanted to visit the HR Giger Museum but there is entirely too much to post about there. So today I’m going to focus only on the museum bar.

The womb-like 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.

With its bone-colored furniture and awe inspiring interior design, the wing of the castle that houses the Museum Bar has a a truly organic feel. The cast concrete surfaces of the bar furnishings have been polished to the point that they are skin soft to the touch, enhancing the impression of being inside a once living creature, of sitting on something, perhaps less than alive, but very warm and enveloping just the same.

Has anyone been to this marvelous place? If so…please tell me about it!

Read about the bar (and see some other pictures) in this article.
