The name HEL originates from Norse Mythology, where the daughter of Loki, the goddess Hel, guardian of the graves, ruled over the spirits of those who died ingloriously. The dominion of Hel was said to be found in Niflheim, the world of the darkness and last of the nine realms.
In the Matrix films, Club Hel was a fetish nightclub located in a basement and run by a ruthless and powerful elder. The club was a refuge for exiles, deviants, goths, punks, vampires, lupines and supernatural beings.
Here in Riga, HEL is a BDSM dungeon presided over by Flame Hel.
At the Hel Studios dungeon in Central Riga, Flame Hel hosts a variety of different fetish parties and events, including play parties, slave auctions, domination and submission workshops, shibari training and private play sessions. While a small number of these events are open to the public, the most interesting events are always private and invitation only.
The HEL Studios dungeon includes several guest rooms and play-spaces which are available for rent. Customized abduction scenarios, slave training scenarios and various other fantasies can also be arranged.
