What a *#&^hole! – Wow, even drunk this place fails to inspire. I've been to CU Las Vegas and THAT was impressive, but I don't even see how this location gets affiliated with the brand. Crappy location, crappy interior, lame decor, watered down drinks and poor service combine for a uniquely terrible experience. Masochists would probably like it here, but everyone else should probably choose someplace else.
Horrible experience – What a horrible place. Dirty, old, with bad drinks and worse bartenders. Your time would be much better spent at any other bar.
Extremely unimpressive – My wife is a long time CU fan and we made a special trip down to the Lower East Side while on a long weekend trip to NYC.
There is no way to overstate the negative attitude at this bar. Everyone from the security staff to the bartenders were rude and completely uninteresting. As with other reviews, we found shady bar tabs, unintended "tips" that were added to cash bills, watered down drinks and in general very poor service, attitude and experience.
The Coyote Ugly brand is very successful because they deliver a consistent product. The management may want to review this location....
There is no reason to visit this bar based on name recognition. There are much better LES bar choices... Any positive reviews are likely from locals that receive much better treatment than "tourists".
NYC COYOTES – NY Coyotes are no comparison to any other states! These coyotes are the old school, original, gorgeous ANIMALS!!! Dont get drunk get ugly <3 This NYC Coyote Ugly has the best dancers, best service, best atmosphere!!
Don't go – Was here on a recent Saturday night. One bartender was great but the other was awful. She tried to get patrons to buy her shots all night and she wrongly accused my friend of not paying for her entire order. They also 'down pour' and replace the higher end liquor with something less expensve. Whatever was in the Patron tequila bottle was not Patron. You're better off just going to Hogs & Heifers...similar atmosphere but worth the time and money.
I've fallen in love with this place! – First of all, if you've seen the movie--don't act like you weren't warned when the women aren't your typical fake-smile-wearing bartenders. Yes, they are rude at times. Yes, they have attitudes. That's part of the gimmick. Remember the movie, where the girls would break out the hose whenever a customer would order water? Like I said--you were warned...though I have yet to see someone doused with a hose. The NY bar is a bit smaller than the one you see in the movie, and has even more of a tendency to get tight and cramped during peak hours. The greatest thing about the place? $2 cans of Rolling Rock and PBR. And that's everyday! During Happy Hour (4-7), you get 2-for-1 drinks, which means you can get trashed on $8! Can you ask for more out of life? The girls do dance on the counters and shove shots of Tequila down guys' throats. In other words, the movie portrayed the place quite accurately. The only downside? Some of the bartenders try to hustle you into buying them multiple shots. However, there are only a few girls there who fit that description, and I try to avoid them. That's the other great thing about the place: The bartenders are consistent with their schedules, and after going there a while you'll know who's working when.
Ugly is a pretty good description – I guess if you want a laugh you could check this bar out because it's kind of famous right? I wouldn't recommend getting anything to drink that isn't in a bottle because I'm pretty sure they water down their alcohol. The beer is okay and everything...but either the girl's can't make a proper drink or they have crappy alcohol...probably both. I didn't really find the girls attractive, like in the movie, even though they were friendly though it was in that fake give me all your money for my tips kind of way. I only saw one with a body that was somewhat worth watching dance on the bar, but I was more wondering if she was going to fall because she looked uncomfortable. It's pretty grimy and smells weird in there too. I guess that's the point but I really don't recommend this place unless you are an uneducated man or woman with no taste buds.
huge disappointment – Not at all what we had expected! It was small and about 100 degrees! It was crowded, but only because it's half the size you would expect it to be. There wasn?t much dancing going on and the bartenders jumped up on the bar for only part of a song. It wasn't wild or crazy or even s exy. The floor was all busted up and you had to watch to make sure you didn't fall. The drinks were not poured well and it was impossible to get to the bar and order.
Worst bar Ive ever been to!!!! – Im a bartender at a popular sports bar and im always very personable with people (obviously its my job to be) ... but the girls were ABSOLUTELY rude. I live in the east village and wanted to see if it was like the movie and it was not even close... the girls were not hot at all and when I asked the bartender that was closer to the door (which was so rude) for a certain type of vodka which she couldve been nice about and could have just told me about the different types that the bar had ...but she was so rude that she seemed annoyed and impatient by my order .. just walked away. I wanted to leave right away but I had a lot more people with me so i couldnt. I cant believe that people that work in that type of industry can expect to make money when they are that rude... showing your stomach and "chest" wont do anything for you obviously.. i always overtip because i am a bartneder as well but i didnt even want to tip you girls. if you dont want to work in that industry then dont .. because looking miserable as youre working doesnt make people comfortable! Worst place my boyfriend and I (plus tourist friends) have EVER been to!
Still as drunk and depraved, even after all the Hollywood hype. – Boasting two dart boards, a couple of video games, and an extensive collection of drunk patrons' bras hanging over the bar, Coyote Ugly has everything even the most displaced Southerner could want. But men of all kinds flock to Coyote Ugly for the eye candy, most of which is to be found behind the bar (or dancing on it, famously). A jukebox features the musical stylings of such good ol' boys as Buck Owens, David Allan Coe, and many others. Like most bars, weekends are rowdiest, when the women go buck wild, causing men to do the same.
