Liliana ‘Lil’ Lovell opened the original Coyote Ugly saloon in 1993 in New York, N.Y., with a simple business plan: beautiful girls + booze = money. Each night, her ‘coyotes’ ascended the bar to entertain customers with dancing and drink-pouring. After being made famous by the 2000 Hollywood movie of the same name, Coyote Ugly expanded across the U.S., Germany, Russia and Ukraine. Now, Lovell is looking at Canada for her next wave of growth.
