    Bar Zur Hölle (“The Hell Bar”) was a striptease club in Mainz, Germany. Established in the late 1970s, it was run by Jasmin Wimmer from ca. 1990 until it closed for good in 2017, according to the Merkurist.

    Motter Femina probably was picked for its wavy stems which are evocative of flames. Also, the terminal of r echoes the tailed she-devils. The name might have played a role as well.
