What to expect: a bicycling robot, kinetic artwork, and lots of brews.


Walking into the doors of Romania's new steampunk-themed bar is like walking right into the body of a watch (or something equally mechanical). Rotating art covers the walls and ceiling turning the entire space into a breathing machine of sorts. Enigma, a bar located in Romania, is inspired by steampunk art—a fact that is impossible to notice once you enter. There's even a robot bicycling (and powering a plasma bike lamp) to greet bar-goers at the door. The most stunning sights are further inside—walls filled with synchronized cranks, overhead lamps with mechanized coverings, and a bar that's more artwork than drinking station.

Enigma is calling itself the "world's first kinetic steampunk bar"—while we can't officially vouch for that, the bar is surely a sight to be seen. Check out the video above for a peek inside.
