COYOTE UGLY SALOON

Well almost everyone saw the movie and the bar is pretty close to what you’d imagine. Sexy Bartenders will entertain you dancing on the bar, while you are ordering your drink, but after… please keep it in your hand since it could be knocked over easily by those big moves…. Over all it is a great option for a higher energy bar, where you can let loose and have fun with friends while sipping on your favorite drink, or just doing a shot. When you enter you realize that it is bigger than it looks and you can play some pool, play beer pong or ride a mechanical bull. Wednesdays are Ladies Nights and there are bands and special events happening here pretty often – just check their website for the schedule. Coyote Ugly is Spring Break headquarters and definitely a place you should see at least once while in Destin. It is close to almost every other bar at the Harbor, so you will have other options if it gets too crazy for you. Please have a designated driver or a taxi lined up. Black Taxi is usually no more than a couple of minutes away from it and […]
