The Nashville location will be closed for the next few months as we try to rebuild after the bombing on Christmas Day 2020. Until then, our staff are out of a job and with COVID still keeping our industry closed or operating at fractions of normal business capacities, they really need your help.

Every dollar really does make a difference. Thank you for taking the time to read this and help.
In the early morning hours on December 25, 2020, Downtown Nashville was rocked by an RV packed with explosives. Our iconic bar has sustained some damage, the full extent of which we still do not know. Our hearts go out to our neighbors and friends that were not so lucky. We will rise from the ashes as a community and be better than ever.
Thank you for your continued support of our family at Coyote Ugly Nashville.
Coyote Ugly Saloon would like to take a moment to reflect on some pretty powerful words from Travis Tritt:
“It’s a great day to be alive I know the sun’s still shining When I close my eyes There’s some hard times in the neighborhood But why can’t every day be just this good.”
We are safe. We are healthy, and we join the Nashville community in rebuilding better than ever!! – Liliana Lovell
We are living in unprecedented times. In comparison to the global pandemic, violence stemming from racial inequality, the raging wildfires, etc., my news is comparatively small—but it is deeply personal and I would like to share it.
The original Coyote Ugly Saloon, on 1st Avenue in New York City, has closed its doors forever. We have been shuttered for 6 months in accordance with New York State Covid-19 restrictions and simply cannot continue to pay the rent. I want to thank all of the former employees, customers, friends, and family that made that little bar so very special. I celebrated so many memorable milestones within those walls. The bar—and you—will forever be a part of who I am.
"To this day, though, the founder of the actual Coyote Ugly, Liliana Lovell, has only seen the movie once — at the New York premiere in 2000. 'If you look back at the movie, the bar is such a small part of it,' she explains. 'It just happens to be the most memorable part.'"
"When I look back I can’t believe I had the guts to open my own business at 25. It was empowering: financial independence, networking, having a family around through that staff. I remember going from girl to woman in those first few years at Coyote."
