Coyote Bar, which began as After Dark Bar and Lounge before becoming Coyote in 2012, is described as a charming “hole-in-the-wall” kind of bar and is known for featuring lively Latin music and an energetic dance floor.

Coyote Bar closed last year in response to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, and locals remained in the dark as to the bar’s future. Thankfully, it appears that the bar is planning to relaunch under new ownership, according to a liquor license application uncovered by a What Now San Francisco investigation.

Previously owned by Jose Antonio Guzman, the new license lists Enilda Guzman as the new primary owner. Enilda has been serving as the General Manager of the bar for years, and now it appears she’s assumed primary ownership of the entire operation. With cheap drinks, Tecate on draft, and a low-pressure atmosphere, Coyote bar has become the go-to-spot for regulars in need of a quick, stiff drink.

It is not clear yet what will change under the new ownership, but it doesn’t appear that locals want anything drastic. People seemed quite content with the pared-down environment the original bar fostered, and as the old saying goes – if it ain’t broke – don’t fix it.
