Located in the heart of Bricktown, Coyote Ugly Oklahoma City opened its doors to capacity crowds, with the world famous ‘Coyotes’ entertaining the thirsty patrons! As the doors opened – the Coyotes immediately jumped onto the bar and danced to a mix of classic and hard rock while the crowd cheered them.
‘Welcome to Coyote Ugly!’ yelled founder Liliana Lovell.
Coyote Ugly’s founder Liliana ‘Lil’ Lovell grew up in a lower middle class family in New Rochelle, New York and worked two jobs to pay for a private high-school education and put gas in her ‘67 VW Bug. After graduation, Lil was bound for NYU. It was during her college years – she learned her business acumen.
Coyote Ugly Saloon first opened its doors to the public in Manhattan, on January 27th, 1993 and was an instant success. She had perfected her business plan - beautiful girls + booze = money. Coyote Ugly Saloon quickly established itself in the hearts of New Yorkers as their preeminent drinking establishment.
Coyote Ugly gained national attention in early 1997 when a story called “The Muse of the Coyote Ugly Saloon” written by former Coyote bartender Elizabeth Gilbert for GQ magazine, shined a spotlight on the little bar in the East Village. Shortly after that, Hollywood came knocking and the movie rights to Lil's story were sold. “Coyote Ugly” opened in August 2000, has grossed over $100 million and a worldwide audience quickly learned what the phrase “We don’t serve water here!” meant.
What makes this saloon different than most bars, is the sexy and sassy “coyotes” that pour drinks while keeping a beat from behind AND on top of the bar! The “coyotes” use the bar top as their stage for high energy singing of your favorite tunes and pulse raising dancing performances.
Lil’s Coyote Ugly Saloons are still run with the same mission statement: Quick wit, unshakable assurance, and the ability to take your last dollar, has made Coyote Ugly what it is today.
