South Augusta Nightclub to Close
Local bar and nightclub Coyotes, which has been open for 17 years, will close this weekend, according to the owner.
Charlie Sconyers, who co-owns the venue with Randy Sconyers, said that the property off Peach Orchard Road that houses Coyotes was recently sold by its former owner Vicken Baklayan. Sconyers said the new owners have plans to increase the price of rent considerably, prompting him to consider opening a new food and entertainment business elsewhere. Sconyers also owns Roadrunner Cafe, which is located in the neighboring building.
Coyotes is located at 2514 Peach Orchard Road. The bar first opened in March of 2001. Sconyers sold the venue six years after it opened, before reacquiring it a year later.
