It’s been a long time coming, but Coyote Ugly, the bar that was immortalized in the 2000 film of the same name, is finally ready to make its debut in Fort Worth.

Announced via release, Coyote Ugly will open its doors at 3005 Bledsoe in Fort Worth’s West 7th District early next month. Plans to bring the iconic bar to Texas have long been in the works, first announced back at the end of 2015, and was originally supposed to open early last year.

For those unfamiliar with Coyote Ugly, the concept describes its bartenders — and its drinks — thusly:

Each night sexy, sassy, tough-talking "Coyotes" go well beyond serving drinks; they ascend the bars to entertain the crowd with choreographed dances, songs, games, body shots and much more. As for the drinks, the rule is hard-nosed: no "frou frou" shaken or stirred concoctions, and nothing that requires a blender or more than two ingredients to make.

Right now, Coyote Ugly is searching for those “sassy, tough-talking” bartenders via its Cowboy Ugly Girl Saloon Search, which will be held on January 28 and 29. Coyote Ugly founder Liliana “Lil” Lovell will be in town searching for “local girls who can make a drink, keep a beat, and look good while doing it.” Anyone can try out to be a bartender, but you’ll have to meet Lovell’s exacting (and slightly bizarre) standards for “her girls” to get the gig.

Coyote Ugly is set to debut in Fort Worth on February 8.
