• ‘Bar Rescue’ coming to Spike TV

02 Feb

Watching Gordon Ramsay harangue people on his “Kitchen Nightmares” Fox series makes me want a drink. I wonder if a new Spike TV series called “Bar Rescue” will make me want a sandwich.

Spike TV, which has ordered 10 episodes, says “Host Jon Taffer (right) will use his in-your-face style along with his renowned method of management called Taffer Dynamics to transform the bar into a vibrant, profitable establishment. He will utilize everything from state-of-the-art science such as eye tracking technology, monitoring of body temperature and even reading pheromone output in patrons in order to create an ambitious plan of action.

“Taffer will focus on one establishment per episode from cities all around the country. Taffer’s wife, Nicole, will appear in the show along with a rotating group of experts.”

Taffer’s resume lists owning and operating bars, nightclubs and restaurants as well as serving as a consultant in those fields. His client list includes Ritz-Carlton Hotels, InterContinental Hotel Group, Marriott Hotels, Molson-Coors Canada, DB Brewery-New Zealand, Rainforest Café, The Hollywood Palace and Hooters.

    I cannot stress how cheap and crappy the makeovers these people provide are. They seem to know nothing about bars so why are they running this show? They take bars that are NOT failing and screw them up. It’s a big joke.

    I saw the sports bar they just “completed.” On the walls they actually painted around their lights so it would be good for their shoot but when the lights came down there were big unpainted areas. They moved this sports bars televisions around but added nothing and even hung them crooked. … As a business owner myself I was appalled by what I saw.
