Coyote Ugly bar to open in Cardiff

It’s going to be up the road from Walkabout

The popular noughties film Coyote Ugly, starring Tyra Banks and John Goodman, is setting up shop on St. Mary Street this April. 

The Western themed bar will be replacing The Square nightclub just up the road from Walkabout. The film is based on a series of American bars where the bartenders dance on tables, spray customers and generally have a wild time.

The bar will be Western themed

The film starring Tyra Banks and John Goodman was based on a chain of popular American bars of the same name,  best known for their western-themed style. According to the bar’s website the Coyote Ugly legend began with “a girl, a dream, and a little bit of Wild Turkey”.

Founded in New York’s East Village in 1993, the chain gained a cult following after the film’s release and now has 21 locations across four countries including the US, Russia, Ukraine and Germany, and soon to be Cardiff.
