  • Jon Taffer truly is the world's best bar consultant

    9.0
    Jon is a genius in the world of bars and nightclubs and he offers to show the world and many bars how he works. A lot of managers and owners of these bars and nightclubs are often jerks and idiots, so of course Jon has to yell at these guys. I often find myself shocked at how dirty some of these kitchens are, which makes me wonder if health inspectors even come to bars. I love how al the bars get transformed and given identities to make them unique.

    I will also acknowledge that the show is somewhat staged, but it is not fake. Jon really wants the bars he works with to succeed and uses his own money to help redesign these bars. With the exception of a few bars (Murphy's Law does not count), several of these bars went on to have great success, so the show is not fake.



    This is one of Spikes best shows on TV, along with 1000 Ways to Die.

  • Jon Taffer is unessecarily rude when he saves bars! He feels his deep pockets give him the right to be disrespect people.

    I saw an episode on my local bar Kilkenny's. It's one thing to come in and try to help a failing bar, but this guy comes in and is VERY rude and disrespectful to people as he does it. It's unnecessary and disturbing. It also seems he is just using the establishment for his own . show advertising profits. Not necessarily concerned for the future of the bars:



    "Despite 'Bar Rescue,' Breakwall Closes"

    "I had high hopes for them when they appeared on Bar Rescue, although the debt they were facing was scary," Sherman told Patch in an email. "I watched the show, and it seemed to me that Jon Taffer really didn't understand the Redondo Pier

    In a review on Yelp, Sherman expressed the same sentiment.



    "Honestly, I think that Bar Rescue killed (Kilkenny's)/Breakwall," she wrote. "I'm sure that Jon Taffer would blame it on something else, but he had a hand in (its)
