A bar with integrated anti-tank defense
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

It's 20 minutes away from my home, and it's very cool. A swiss 9 cm Pak 50 outside a bar:

A great example of the age-old Swiss traditional bar game - Shoot the Cars.

The difficult part is keeping one's balance on the thin metal trellis while loading and firing at passing cars.
I knew the UK pubs loved darts, but leave it to the Swiss to take it to another level!!

“Bar Apache”

Maybe it is attempting to model itself on an old American frontier fort . . . after all, it does include a miniature Statue of Liberty as part of its adornment (along with the AT gun).

Massimo, are you sure that it isn’t in Southern California? There are palm trees just out back!

Do they serve Feldschlosschen beer in California? Laughing
It's Ticino, the place where I live. We are in Switzerland, but south to the Alps, and we are very proud of our palms!
Search Google Images for "ticino or "lugano" and see how many pictures with palms you will get Cool

The exact place can be seen on Flickr's map:

Not that far from there there is a 155 mm model 1942 howitzer inside an house's backyard. It's clearly visible from the highway.
