Real ‘Alien’ bar. Who needs a drink? (14 Photos)

It’s called the Giger Bar but locals in Gruyere, Switzerland, refer to this as the ‘skeleton bar.’ The bar was designed by famed Swiss artist H.R. Giger. If you think the bar is oddly reminiscent of the ‘Alien’ films it’s probably because Giger worked as a designer on the ‘Alien’ movie, receiving multiple awards, including the Oscar for best special effects. The attention to detail is scary.
The interior of the bars are themed along the lines of his famous biomechanical style as shown in the ‘Alien’ films. The roof, walls, fittings and chairs are all modeled by the artist and fit into the same designs as seen in the films he designed. The bar is mostly open at night….mostly…

    For the people that have been there, what are the prices like? Is everything absurdly expensive?

      It’s in Switzerland. Been there, drank there – prices are, relative to Switzerland prices, pretty cheap. The special drink of the place is the ‘Alien Coffee’ which is coffee in a futuristic cup served on a small wooden tray, also futuristic, and served with two servings of cream and a biscuit. Great place.
