The Most Famous Bar on the Planet is coming to Singapore and they are launching an island-wide search for Coyotes! 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 in a fun, drinking environment. Taking over the premises that was formerly the 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. What an exciting addition to the local nightlife scene!
Coyote Ugly Saloon Singapore is launching a recruitment campaign calling for bartenders, singers and dancers to fill their 20 Coyote positions. The women empowered campaign calls for ‘Stars behind the Bar’ to forge a star-studded career and have fun doing it. Successful candidates of this coveted role get to travel for guest stints in their 26 Coyote Ugly Saloon locations around the world.
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. In the year 2000, Touchstone Pictures and producer Jerry Brukheimer released the film “Coyote Ugly”, directed by Michael Bay and starred Piper Perabo, Maria Bello and Adam Garcia. The rest they say is Hollywood history.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or check out their FB page.

The Monarchy is the brainchild of nightlife veterans, Robbie Hoyes-Cock, the CEO & Founder of the world's most glamourous Formula 1 weekend after-parties The Podium Lounge; and Steve Yallop, former Executive Director of Pangaea at Marina Bay Sands, who have been organising star-studded high society club nights in Singapore since 2005.

At its studios in Forum The Shopping Mall and Winstedt Road, students are offered a wide variety of popular dance classes like Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap, Lyrical, Mommy and Me, Musical Theatre, Acro Dance and Twinkle Tots.

She wanted to provide a safe and loving space, where students can learn dance and feel at home in the studios. To Vicky, dance is not just a super fun activity, but also one that can transform lives by building character, discipline and confidence.
The academy has grown significantly with students ranging from two-year-olds to adults, all united by their love for dance. The decision to open a second studio was made as it was getting pretty full at its Forum location. The space at 10 Winstedt Road was chosen due to several reasons – the spacious studios, the lush surrounding greenery, the cozy feeling of the community at Winstedt and the convenience of the location as it is close to Newton MRT station.
Compared to the Forum branch, the new studio at Winstedt Road boasts larger studio spaces. The comfortable waiting lounge is also much bigger, and there are a lot of new classes offered at Winstedt.
With their recent expansion, All That Jazz Dance Academy hopes to continue to inspire more dance students with positive experiences in its studios, with the teachers and staff members. Ultimately, All That Jazz plans to collaborate with more dance institutions and the entertainment industry to provide their students with more opportunities to pursue dance at a professional level.
