The square metallic bar-stand with exclusively female bartenders in the center is wide enough for table dancing. DJs perform various styles of music on the weekend, keeping the crowd bouncing in rhythm. The bar definitely gets the thumbs up for the smart and sexy interior and Friday night out atmosphere, but they have been known to discourage foreigners.

The name doesn’t reveal much about this place. It much sooner resembles an American diner than the bar in the film Coyote Ugly. That said, the huge red-vinyl, diner-style booths are a nice touch, and the interior would be really cool if it weren’t for the bizarre and rather unsophisticated light show projected from above the bar. The bar itself is huge – consuming the entire room – which means plenty of space for lining up drinks on a busy Saturday night.


The atmosphere is hard to pinpoint – eclectic, relaxed, trendy, American-esque, these words all come to mind but do not paint a proper picture. In fact, the style of the bar is rather indefinite, but it's pleasant overall. The Latin music was booming when I was there, but when the deejays are on the job Wednesday through Sunday nights, it can be everything from 80s music to R&B. And it is played at typical ear-drum damaging club levels, good for dancing but not conversing.

The booths lining the front windows would have an amazing view of the Daugava if it weren’t for the shopping mall/office complex obstructing it. But one doesn’t come here for the views. As one of Riga’s newest bars, it’s also fast becoming one of the trendiest – one of the places you must include on your club crawl of the Old Town.

Prices here are moderate, with most cocktails ranging from 4– 8.5 euros. The bar’s specials – Coyote Fly Cocktails – are all 7 euros a pop, some packed with enough alcohol to be worth it. The Ms. Coyote is a sweet choice for the ladies, with three types of Martini, Sprite, and vanilla syrup, or try the more harsh Mr. Coyote for the men – a sort-of gin and rum and tonic.

Smokers will delight in the fact that there is a special glass-enclosed smoking room at the front of the building, so you can go “outside” to smoke without freezing your fingers off in winter. It's an exciting place, nice for a night out although a bit pricey in comparison to other places in town – even in Old Town.

My friend got turned away at the door because they said they 'don't let Jews in', another friend was called a gypsy, and
non-latvians are clearly not welcome and they let you know it. This club is racist and not even worth the effort. I hope this
place gets shuts down.

Don't go there. They let only Latvians proceed, for foreigners they ask Member cards, which actually do not exist. It is
considered to be a place for a dumb and classy part of Latvian society. Gay DJs, bartenders with a bad reputation across the
local media, even the name and club's format is stolen from the Coyote Ugly from Manhattan. Ridiculous. There are a way
better places where to spend ur time in Riga.
