It is a wonder this place is still in business. Yes, the girls dance on the bar but most are fuglier than any strip club. I watched one girl get up on the bar while a guy took pictures up her skirt (nothing on) but she was really disgusting to look at. I was surprised the bouncers sat back and did nothing. Oh, did I mention this place is a sausagefest? If there are any women in this bar, they are fat chicks from the southend that probably stumbled over from Tiki Bobs. This club is the worst of the Pioneer Square scene. Avoid if you are a straight guy.
Great service, great crowd – One of the best bars I?ve ever been to. The girls dancing on the bar were extremely hot, and they give the place a great atmosphere. The drinks were pricey but good and the service at the bar was outstanding. I?m a good tipper, but even considering that, the gorgeous bartender seemed to be able to read my mind. She wasn?t overly friendly, but very fast and professional....just the way I like it.
The bar has a strong "coyote ugly" theme, but it?s much less produced and choreographed than at Coyote Ugly. (no bar chick playing the "tough girl" part on stage). Female guests are allowed and invited to dance on the bar, and some of the best looking girls up there were guests. Nobody used the mechanicalbull while I was there and it wasn?t a country crowd at all.
I was there on a Saturday night and the crowd was outstanding. Male and female numbers were about even. It was a fairly good mix of 20 something partyers and 30 something business types, all having a great time. I was a lone 30?s male on business and I ended up hanging out with a frat guy with tattoos, a marine in uniform, a black couple attending the Seahawks game, and an attractive 40 year old and her two beautiful daughters; certainly one of the most mixed groups I?ve ever been in. It was packed enough to be fun but not too crowded, and the mostly classic rock music mix was great to dance to. I was having such a great time that I was really shocked when 2am rolled around and the place closed.
I will definitely be going back.
Gotta Love It!!! – Honestly people with negative attitudes.... get a life. Its a bar in Pioneer Square, Everywhere in the square has higher priced drinks, and the cover is only $5.00 for dudes,. chicks are ALWAYS FREE!!! On thursdays, the women out number the men and everyone is friendly. Whoever got crappy service, they wee probably @ssholes. You would love to work in an environment where you have thye right to treat people like you want to be treated. If the customer is nice, then the bartenders are nice. If your a di@k, then they can be di@ks. Go in there with a great attitude and you'll get great service. They also have Happy Hour tues - fri 5-7 $2 Appetizers, $2.50 Domestic Drafts, $3.00 Wells. Lots of business parties are held here and they have a blast.
The girls are not strippers. No one tries to give you a lap dance so get over yourself. COWGIRLS INC. is a bar with great looking women and a fun atmosphere!!! If your in Seattle, check it out Thursdays, for ladies night, and Fridays and Saturdays for Top 40s dance music.
Don't listen to the negative talkers, they probably couldn't get any so they're just hating.
Didn't Live Up to the Hype – Perhaps I went to this bar expecting too much. After all, you hear ads all the time on the radio and they are the self proclaimed "Coyote Ugly" of Seattle. However, I must say that I was disappointed. The service was, at best, terrible and it wasn't even busy when I was there. The drinks were overpriced and the place just feels dirty. The bartenders are above average girls, but most girl bartenders are above average girls. They certainly were nothing spectacular.
If you're looking for the true "Coyote Ugly" experience, stay away from this place. You're better off renting the movie and getting drunk at home.
Save your money... – Cowgirls Inc. is just not worth it. I've been there a few different times and was disappointed each time. The cover is too much, the beers are too expensive (if you can actually GET one), the service is AWFUL, it gets WAY too crowded, and other reviewers on this site are right, the bouncers are ridiculous. If you MUST go, go early on a weeknight, weekends are just meat markets where there's no room to even move. The only plus is that, yes, the girls are pretty hot, and they use that to make money, not unlike strippers. Careful though guys, other than the bartenders, there are WAY more guys there than women. Just a heads up.
Worse than a low class strip club. – This could have been an entertaining Club but sadly it is not. I was surprised by how rude the bouncers were. The waitresses were nice. The "Dancers" were ok. I have no idea what the Asian girl she is doing there though, she actually knows how to dance! This is really just a Strip Club idea of a place where the girls leave their clothes on. The guys there were less interesting and attractive than the guys I usually meet at other Clubs. I swear I thought one of them looked Howard Stearn on an ugly day!
Great Dance Spot – This is one of my fav places to dance; though it gets a bit crowded sometimes. Very unique/awesome music mix: rock to country to top40 even techno; the DJ is reads the crowd well & plays what they want (worst thing=bad DJ). Sophisticated crowd (21-30+?) but a tad dirty. Sometimes there is a lot of guys (because of the on-the-bar dancing). Unless you're down for some peanuts eat before coming to this place. Mixed drinks are decent; could be better. Some of the hottest bartenders w/ some attitude.
Keep your glass full if you stand at the bar – Read the reviews....most of them are accurate. The girls dance on the bar but the entire staff has an attitude. I got bounced for not buying another drink while I was standing at the bar after I just finished my beer and having spent $12 on a shot and a beer. The girls are just strippers that don't take it off. Save your money.
Entertaining Fun for $5 – Cowgirls has a cover no exception. $5.00 to get in. There was action and entertainment in the air. Very attractive bar girls (21-28 my best guess) :) Good rock and country mix. Great motivater. Dance floor was crouded. Allowing those who cant dance to dance. drinks i had $6.00ea (sex on beachs, absolute and sprite) drinks are weeeeak.
Hell i went there last june around 9-10 ish. It was slow and talked to he bar chicks. There friendly and i think you'll get better service (latter in the evening) if you nice and say hello without trying to get in their pants earlier on. I did and latter had better drinks too. O ya nothing beats sitting at the bar and haveing chicks dance right in front of you. I think one of them must have been/ is a stripper. Some of those moves are killer :P
Can't Beat It!!! – Litereally....I tried and they wouldn't let me! This place has it all from brews to pool to girls riding a bull and doing better than me!!! I definitely reccommend this place as a beginning bar for the crazy night out.....I love the atmosphere and music, but after sporting events or late at night when the crowd get's rough and honery it's too crazy for me. Have fun and bring your friends...you won't be disappointed. I wasn't.....HOTTIES EVERYWHERE!!!!!
