The bar has lots of potential, however it’s hidden and in a quiet area. A bar sells booze. I’m English and staff don’t speak English but polite and smile. It is what you make it and to be fair, we was here on November 25th...More

Člověk je natěšený na bar s tématikou Vetřelce a pak najde zklamání v podobě nevyužitého potenciálu. Část vybavení baru výborná (křesla a tváře ve sloupcích, zbytek chudý a smutný. Přitom by stačilo málo, několik soch/postav z filmu, zatemněné výlohy a max. využití tématiky. Drinky dobrý,...More

The staff was very unwelcoming to us and . We decided to go somewhere else as we had the feeling the bar does not want us to customer, even though it was completely empty.

While the concept sounds great, the execution is lacking. I was hoping to feel like I was walking into the set of Alien/s, instead, it feels like decoration added as an afterthought.  Service and drinks are fine.

I only learned today that the late, great H.R. Giger was from Chur, and that one of the two official Giger Bars is in Chur. So, we had to go. This is an odd outing. The location is difficult to find given that it is...More

There are two Giger bars in Switzerland. Both are designed by the artist, H.R. Giger, the famous Swiss artist responsible for designing the art and sets for the film, Alien. This bar was originally designed for NYC, but when it cost too much to open,...More
