Coyote Ugly Saloon, the well-known American bar and restaurant brand that inspired the cult movie of the same name, features female bartenders and dancers called Coyotes.
Coyote Ugly Saloon Singapore is launching a recruitment campaign calling for bartenders, singers and dancers to fill their 20 Coyote positions.
The campaign calls for ‘Stars behind the Bar’ to forge a star-studded career and have fun doing it. Successful candidates will get to travel for guest stints in their 26 Coyote Ugly Saloon locations around the world.
Taking over the premises formerly occupied by f-Club at Clarke Quay, the 700 capacity bar and restaurant, launching in January 2020, will operate 7 days a week with choreographed dance routines taking place nightly.
“We are looking for talented Singaporeans to rule the bar,” says Steve Lewis owner of the UK and now Singapore franchise, adding that Singapore is the most exciting project to date.
Most would be familiar with the Jerry Brukheimer film “Coyote Ugly”, directed by Michael Bay and starred Piper Perabo, Maria Bello and Adam Garcia.
However, the Coyote Ugly legend began with a Lillana Lovell, a dream and a little bit of Wild Turkey. In 1992, the Wall Street apprentice, sick of working for other people, quit her job and started working behind the bar.
Her quick wit, antics behind the bar and the ability to take your last dollar eventually led to her opening the first Coyote Ugly outlet in New York city. Two Disney executives walked into the bar one day and had such a great time that they decided to make a movie about it.
Today, the Coyote Ugly Saloon franchise operates 26 outlets in the US, UK, Russia, Germany, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan and Japan and has earnings that grossed over $34 million in 2017.
Liliana Lovell is personally involved in the recruitment and training of Coyotes, interested candidates can apply with their CVs to [email protected] or check out their Facebook page.
