Named after the rope makers of the late 18th century, the so-called "Reepers", the street acquired an infamous reputation for a vibrant nightlife full of live music, dancing and mainly entertainment for adults and sailors from all over the world in the 1920s. After the During the Second World War, sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll took St. Pauli by storm, culminating in the Beatles' career launch around 1960.

The smell of freedom always came with vicious crimes and powerful gangsters taking care of business, some of whom became legends. Although the sailors have been replaced by hordes of tourists, some legendary sights have still managed to survive the times of change. Places like Zur Ritze with its iconic spread legs logo. Featuring a windowless pub in the back garden with an attached fully equipped boxing club on the lower ground floor, which is still in use today.

In the early 1980s the bar on the ground floor became a well-known playground for outlaws and prostitutes. Meanwhile, the gym below attracted several world-class international boxers to perform their training and prepare for the moment.

The breathable velvet lining reflects the distinctive color scheme on the "Reeperbahn". DYNACOIL is - as always - the weapon of choice when it comes to damping systems at KangaROOS.
