High above the city of Nantes in western France, is perhaps one of the most interesting and thematic sky bars in the world. Le Nid (The Nest) was created by graphic artist Jean Jullien, and is exactly what the title implies. Located at the Tour de Bretagne, the bar is occupied by an enormous stork/heron, who keeps a watchful eye over the city, and its “nest” of eggs.
And while the space is meant to be fully-functional and interactive, part of the large bird becomes the actual bar, and its eggs are the tables and chairs. Le Nid is open to the public, so it’s not only a great place to relax and grab a drink 144m over the city, but it also becomes a very high art installation.

Can Man is a series of street art by My Dog Sighs. Using found cans, the artist paints faces on the bottom, mimicking the intricacies of an aged metal can — helping to bring them to life, and to stare at you judgingly while you walk down the street.
More Can Men and Women can be found at My Dog Sighs’ Facebook page.
