Om-Feer, (Ampere) Practical unit of electric current.

Sitting on an operational electrical sub-station is the high voltage Bar Ampere – most notable for electrifying aperitifs, such as the unusual quinine-derived Quinquina.

Exposed power cords and bare bulbs dangle, while the central bar enjoys ambient light from a wall constructed from the bottoms of wine bottles. The atmosphere is wonderful - great music and beautiful graffiti artwork.
