Status: Shakespeare once wrote that "a rose by any other name would still smell as sweet," but the owners of Coyote Station in St. Clair Shores would argue otherwise.
Over the last 10 plus years, the eastside dance club has been known as Ronjo's, Skinny's, Gecko's and, as of this past summer, the Shoreclub, all in attempts for find the perfect fit for the eastside patrons.
After a renovation that included a new dance floor, a paint job, fog machine and club lighting, Coyote Station emerged serving up healthy doses of food by day and music and adult beverages by night.
The Coyote Station is open from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Saturday and 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. Sunday, and there's no cover charge.
"Right now, with the economy, people don’t want to pay to get into places," says Manager Marcus Abdullah.
Gear: Sexy little outfits ranging from jean shorts and skirts to bikini tops and corsets help the bartenders earn their tips while the patrons take a more laidback approach with jeans and casual shirts. The only rules seem to be no sweat pants, and hats must either face forward or backward.
Mood: At Coyote Station, you’re more likely to find the college kid from down the street sitting beside a man who could very well be his father rather than a slew of hipsters or tanned socialites with perfectly coifed hair and waxed eyebrows.
“They generate a good crowd,” says Mike Attard of St. Clair Shores who frequents Coyote Station once or twice week because of the close proximity to his house.
As you enter the club, a wooden dance floor set in front of the door beckons you to test out the latest MTV dance moves. While the music is loud enough to get your pulse pounding on the dance floor, Coyote Station is spacious enough that you can sneak away to a quiet corner for a little privacy.
There’s a bar and tables on either side of the dance floor with 11 flat-screen TVs hung throughout the venue.
Pick me up: A flame-grill menu includes tasty choices with even more tempting prices like the 1/3 pound burger for $4, grilled chicken sandwich for $5.50 and Philadelphia cheese steak for $6.50. Along with southwest grill items like macho nachos (seasoned ground beef, melted cheese, black olives, sour cream, salsa and jalapenos -- $4.50), sides and appetizers are also available.
There are two full bars so you never have to go long without a drink, and on Thursdays shots, bottles and bombs are just $2.
Entertainment: House DJ Justin Thomas plays mostly top 40 on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and has no problem taking requests.
“We try to make people happy,” says Thomas who’s been spinning at the club for seven months. “The main concern for everyone here is for everyone to leave happy.”
