MUSEUM HR GIGER BAR
in Château St. Germain, Gruyères, Switzerland

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.

Text excerpt from Secret Magazine No. 23, by Javier De Pison
