John Taffer from Spike TVs Bar Rescue Provides Great Bar Tips


Spike TV has a new reality TV show called Bar Rescue.  Bar Consultant Jon Taffer and his team take over bars on the verge of bankruptcy and turn them around.  In addition to remodeling the bar, he gets the management and staff on the right track to running a successful bar.  He covers everything such as managing your pour cost, menu engineering, up-selling, even why proper uniforms are important.  Of course, like any good reality TV show, Bar Rescue is built around the drama that comes from running a bar.

Check out this clip below.  John talks about the perfect one-ounce pour, the power of suggestion, bar menu engineering, and why selling fruit drinks helps promote food sales.

Bar Rescue airs on Spike on Sunday but they rerun episodes often.  Also, many clips and some full episodes are available on Spike’s website.  Check out this clip and meet John Taffer, the star of Bar Rescue.

  1. Being a owner of a bar it is great to see some if the suggestions made but my question is what does it cost these owners to have this done???

  2. My hotel Needs help really really bad. I work in the restaurant of our hotel in Providence RI. Renaissance Hotel owned by Sage Hospitality and Temple Restaurant owned by Sage Restaurant. We have done really poor business. The busiest we have ever been was when we first opened in 2006. It is 2011 and we have more turn over of waitresses leaving then ever before. We have a beautiful place and no business. A great open bar but no one drinking. Never Ever Packed. Is there anyway that someone could get in touch with this John Taffer and maybe he can shed some light on our business.
