    "Looks like it's been secreted....

    Yeah, but secreted by what..."?

    I hope they hand out Smart Guns at the door, it's the only way you'd get me in there, too many free associations.

    I loved his Deborah Harry stuff.
    I seem to remember a pretty cool Danzig Album too.

    I think that is awesome.

    Too bad anything like that in the US would be constructed of cheap plastic. It just doesn't have the same effect.

    I want to go there :),

    I went there last year, but unfortunately the bar was still under construction. The museum is pretty amazing, too. The best thing is the setting, though, this little medieval town with castle in a rural region of Switzerland... it is called 'Gruyere', and its were the famous cheese is from.

    If you ever visit Switzerland, I highly recommend checking it out, you get to see some picturesque Swiss landscapes and superdoom alien style madness...somehow, it kind of works out pretty well.

    This is actually the second 'Gyger Bar', the first one opened a long time ago in a small town in the Alps called 'Chur' (south-east of Switzerland). It isn't as crazy, the decor is a bit more subtle but it does have the famous chairs (you can actually buy them).

    It probably gets pretty hot in there...


    ...reckon it's a DRY heat?!?!?



    Hell - screw that. A few drinks, and I'd imagine the walls moving...

    Hey - that'd be a good way to call for closing time - hire some actors to pretend to be stuck against the walls and impregnated...

    "K-I-L-L M-E..... PLEEEEEAAASSSEEE!"


    "AAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHHH"


    (you'd never see a place empty so fast...)

    I think that the architecture is awesome. It has a theater/Gothic look. That is definitely not your usual looking bar. I like the idea of its uniqueness.
