Kris has been here for a few months now. She listens and she leads. She is the ultimate alter ego, Coyote. From raunchy, to sexy, to classy, from her creative outfits to her bartending abilities, she is a badass Coyote!

What’s the most fun about your job at Coyote Ugly?
Creating memories that will last a lifetime, making friends with people from all over the world, and getting to be the life of the party!
What makes you a good Coyote?
I love the job, and that is step one to being a “good Coyote.” It doesn’t matter if you’re the best singer, dancer, or bartender, it all comes down to how much you love working as a Coyote. Don’t get me wrong, all of those things are extremely important and crucial to the job, but it just makes a huge difference to customers when they meet a Coyote who is passionate about what they do. Everything else is just an added bonus!
How long have you been a bartender?
I have been bartending for one year now!
What do you like to do on your off time?
I love to travel! The world is so big and I want to see it all!
What is your favorite type of music?
Rock n Roll baby!!! Catch me following Aerosmith across the East Coast for their farewell tour! (All my regulars know I’m the biggest Aerosmith fan and make a point to play a ton of Aerosmith songs on my shifts!)
Do you think the movie is anything like the real thing?
I definitely think there are some similarities with the movie and the Original bar, from all the stories I have heard from my regulars, but not so much with the location I work at now. We aren’t going to spray you down with water if you ask for water or anything like that. The shifts that I work that seem to be the most similar to the movie are Santacon, Saint Patrick’s Day, Halloween, and New Years.. Those shifts get CRAZY.
Why should a potential customer come and visit you?
You should come visit Coyote Ugly because you are guaranteed to have a great time! There is no other bar in NYC where ladies can dance on the bar, get a bodyshot, or play drinking games all night long!
Do you have any advice for women who want to be a Coyote?
Just be yourself! It’s a hard job, but extremely rewarding.
