Bar in H.R. Giger's "Alien"-style.
The famous Giger Bar was opened by the Chur artist and Oscar prize winner H.R. Giger.

H.R. Giger achieved world renown with his "creation" of the "Alien". The Oscar prize-winner established a bar in his hometown that is a must-visit for anyone who is a fan.The bar was originally planned for New York. As scheduling difficulties stymied this project, the bar with its exclusive Giger design was opened in the Kalchbuhl Centre. The entire interior décor of the bar and the furniture were designed by H.R. Giger.
