Bonham Exchange

411 Bonham St, San Antonio, Texas 78205
210-271-3811
http://www.bonhamexchange.net
Located in the heart of downtown San Antonio in a three story turn of the last century building, circa 1891.
The Bonham Exchange strives to not only provide a safe venue for music and dancing, but strive to change with the times. We hope to expose people to new ideas and to maintain a space where all individuals can get along and enjoy each others company, regardless of sex, race, ethnicity, age, or sexual preference- if only for a few hours. We do not wish to isolate the Gay community, as this will never lead to full acceptance within our society. Rather we invite everyone to come out and have a good time- and be whoever you want to be without fear of criticism. This is the legacy of the Bonham, as envisioned by Hap Veltman.

Coyote Ugly Saloon is the most famous bar in the United States and is now in 14 locations across the country.

The Coyote Ugly legend began with a girl, a dream, and a little bit of Wild Turkey. In 1992, Liliana “Lil” Lovell, a 24-year-old Wall Street apprentice-turned-bartender was living a good life. She was doing a job she loved, making money, and gaining notoriety for her antics on the bar as well as behind it.

Tired of working for other people, she was ready to make her move. The plan was simple: open her own bar, make money, and have fun doing it. Determined not to let anyone or anything get in her way, she drew up a business plan [beautiful girls + booze = money].

The Coyote Ugly Saloon officially opened its doors on Jan. 27, 1993. Over the years Coyote [...]
