A splash of Coyote Ugly is in the city of Superior, just minutes off of the Bong Bridge on Belknap Street, in the former dining area of the Shack.
The Ugly Stick Saloon is no stranger to the party scene, considering that the dance venue has already had a good crowd of young and old ages coming in for the first few days of its grand opening on Sept. 13.
“We are a bar and night club that plays and has a variety of music,” owner Brittany Oliver says.
Customers can expect to get a mix of country, rock, and dance music. The atmosphere of the bar definitely has a very cowboy-feel to it, or actually cowgirl would fit the description better.
“I have a full staff of female workers because it’s not too often that you would see a bar with mainly women.”
Oliver tailored the saloon to have some of the Coyote Ugly influences, and she believes that it should be a place where people of all ages should come to socialize with a fun vibe and none of the “uppity” atmosphere that some bars or clubs may have.
“I also want it to be a place where females should feel empowered,” Oliver explains. “I always want women to feel more confident whenever they enter a bar.”
Half of the club consists of a hardwood dance floor completed with a wall mirror and party lights to set the scene for the nights. The other half consists of the bar and some seating, done with newly finished barrel tabletops.
The Ugly Stick Saloon has choreography sessions on the weekends. Wednesdays are karaoke nights, and Thursdays are DJ nights. The bar opens its doors at 4 p.m. on Tuesdays through Saturdays, but is closed on Sundays and Mondays.
