In 1993, the Coyote Ugly Saloon opened its doors in Manhattan’s East Village and began operating under a simple-but-effective business model: hot women, plus booze, equals cash. 

25 years later, the now-iconic cowboy dive bar empire has spawned dozens of locations across the globe, a reality TV show, and one entirely forgettable 2000 movie inspired by founder Liliana Lovell’s beginnings in the original NYC hotspot. 

The flick, which co-starred Tyra Banks, Piper Perabo and Bridget Moynahan, built a cult following over the years, while the boot-stomping, sass-talking antics of actual “coyotes” have kept the Coyote Ugly bars going strong.

Celebrate the Coyote Ugly’s 25th anniversary with the hottest shots from establishments across the country.
