H.R. Giger Bar in Switzerland
In the small mediaeval city of Gruyères, in Switzerland, the designer, plastician, graphic artist and illustrator Hans Ruedi Giger, father of Cinema's most legendary creature, Alien, imagined a strange bar, part of the museum dedicated to his universe (really dark) and to Ridley Scott movie.

Sensitive people, be careful !
