    • Well This Is Actually Very Good!

      Bar Rescue does a lot of things correctly, its realism really shows, Jon Taffer really knows his sh*t. He knows what it takes to deliver a good bar/restaurant to humans. I say humans because the crap he has to deal with, with businesses that don't know what customers really want and my gosh he helps with that. Great show, hope he changes more lives.

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

      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.



      UPDATE: Sadly after the Scoreboard to Death episode, I have lost interest in the show. It's now focusing more on drama than bar science and it just doesn't feel real anymore. I still respect Jon Taffer and blame the production company more than him.
