To call the Museum Bar H. R. Giger a living homage to the late surrealist painter would be grossly ironic, though not without an element of truth. The skeletal structure of the phantasmic space, itself a work of art, is emblematic of Giger’s creative expressions – otherworldly ‘biomechanical’ portraits that reflect the interconnected relationships that exist between man and machine.

Giger rose to fame with his cinematic designs, garnering an Oscar win for his work on the 1980 film Alien. The artist’s career, which spanned more than four decades, is celebrated within the walls of a 400-year old chateau, which since 1998 has housed a permanent exhibition of Giger’s works. The bar, which guests enter into through a space hatch, opened in 2003, and houses the unique, skeletal gothic arches.

The bar’s first inception, Giger Bar in Tokyo, was a profound disappointment to Giger, who took architectural matters into his own hands in its second coming. Tokyo’s Giger Bar has since closed, and Giger’s true vision has been borne in Greyerz.
