Coyote Ugly – the rowdy, western-themed bar widely known for its beautiful female bartenders and dancers who have made pouring drinks an art form – is exporting its version of honky-tonk to Canada.
With 20 locations already open and operating in four countries – including the United States, Germany, Russia and Ukraine – company plans call for debuting in Canada with as many as 15 bars over the next several years. Targeted markets include Calgary, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, among others.
“More than 20 years and a million bar antics later, we’re finally coming to Canada,” said founder Liliana “Lil” Lovell. “We look forward to taking Canada by storm one boot-stomping, drink pouring bar at a time.”
Widely recognized as the most famous bar on the planet, Coyote Ugly thrives on booze, bar dancing and girl power. Each night sexy, sassy, tough-talking “Coyotes” go well beyond serving drinks; they ascend the bar to entertain the crowd with choreographed dance routines that celebrate the wild side of American culture. As for the drinks, the rule is hard-nosed: no “frou frou” shaken or stirred concoctions, and nothing that requires a blender or more than two ingredients to make.
“The energy inside our bars is amazing. From the moment you walk in the door it is a sensory overload of great music, entertainment and fun. There isn’t anything like it. Period,” Lovell said.
