Just a few months after its opening, Frauds and Swindlers, the Gaslamp cockail bar backed by LA-based drink pros, has shuttered and will be replaced by other, less-clothed out-of-towners.
The 5th Avenue site will soon be filled by the infamous Coyote Ugly; the chain, which has 23 locations around the world, will be opening its first Southern California outpost downtown on February 5.
Known for its bartenders who perform dance routines on the bar (commemorated back in a 2000 movie), Coyote Ugly is holding auditions on January 25 and 26 from noon to 5 p.m. at the saloon; they're looking for flair bartenders, dancers, singers, musicians and comedians.
The eatery will serve a gastropub menu and have a pizza kitchen; it's taking over Italian Next Door, the pizzeria that was previously operated by Frauds and Swindlers. San Diego's Coyote Ugly will be open from 11am to 2am, seven days a week. for lunch and dinner .
