Museum HR Giger Bar: Gruyères, Switzerland
This odd-looking establishment was designed by Hans Rudi Giger, who worked as a designer on the Alien movies. It must feel like you’re somewhere in the Alien universe or inside the skeleton of a monster. In any case it’s very original and refreshing.

Big Boabab Pub, Modjadjiskloof, South Africa
Fancy a drink at the world’s only bar inside a tree? Than the The Big Baobab Pub in Modjadjiskloof, in the Limpopo Province of South Africa is just the place to go. it is world renowned for being the widest of its species and because it attracts more than 7000 tourists year.
The baobab is 20 metres high, 45 metres in circumference, sits 15 people comfortably, and is said to be older than the Egyptian pyramids. Shortly after Heather and Doug van Heerden bought the farm, in the late 1980’s, they discovered that the massive baobab tree was hollow inside. When a Baobab reaches 1000 years it starts to hollow naturally. This gave them the bright idea of building a bar inside of it.
