Coyote Ugly New York Has Closed


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.

With all my heart, thank you.

CEO and Founder

“Certainly, a lot of sexy stories have come out of her bar, and Lovell herself has even helped fulfill customers’ fantasies — for a price.”

"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.'"

The Ringer: Oral History of Coyote Ugly

"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."

NY Post - Coyote Ugly Movie

"When asked if she hosed down anyone who ordered water, Lovell said 'sometimes,' with a devious grin. Did they actually light the bar on fire? You bet. That infamous shot out of a cowgirl boot? 'That will be 500 bucks,' she said."

The founder of Coyote Ugly Saloon, Liliana 'Lil' Lovell and Coyote Ugly's general counsel Jeff Wiseman discuss how their company has coped with coronavirus and why reopening will be a struggle even if states give them permission to do so."
