Created by Swiss artist H. R. Giger, Giger Bar is a work of art, an original and completely unique experience. The ceiling, walls, floors, fittings, tables and chairs are all modeled by the artist in the style of his acclaimed ‘Alien’ biomechanical environment and character designs.

There are currently two original Giger Bars: Giger Bar in Chur, Switzerland, opened in 1992, and Museum HR Giger Bar, located in Château St. Germain, Gruyères, Switzerland, which opened in 2003. The Gruyères location is adjacent to the fantastic HR Giger Museum. Click here to visit the Gruyères HR Giger Bar web page.

Sci Fi Hotel LLC is establishing this original and unique art experience in the U.S. and is currently exploring installation and development opportunities in Las Vegas, Seattle, New York, Los Angeles and New Orleans. Find out more at ...

There are about 30 trains a day between Zurich HB (main station) and Chur. The trip takes about 45 minutes to an hour. At Chur station, you can take another train to Chur West and walk to Giger Bar from there, or just take a taxi by the main entrance (they all know where Giger Bar is). We also recommend a stop in Giger Platz, the Chur street newly named in HR Giger's honor. It's about a 10 minute walk from the main train station.
