Same here. I’ll watch it if there’s nothing else on, but I won’t go out of my way to watch.
How about giving us the premise of the show and summary of what you saw last night.
I’ve seen a few. I do find it interesting, especially the marketing science behind things like layout and flow. All of these do have a consistent message that you have to work for success.
Have no idea what you’re talking about.
It’s a pretty good show...
Funny you should ask?! I did by default because with a half million stations on last night that is where I ended up. It was ok. Better than listening to everyone talk about Irene. The show reminded me of the one with Gordon Ramsey when he visited bad resturants. If nothing else important on, I would watch again.
Anone that is thinking about getting into the food or bar industry can maybe pick-up some good tips from this guy.
Caught it part way through last night.
Interesting to a point, but it must have same old writers as all the other reality type shows with unnecessary personnel drama plot that only takes away.
You have some connection?
Yep, I actually watch this show. I’ve learned a lot. It is pretty interesting to watch how people sabotage themselves and are unwilling to face it.
My husband started watching it about three weeks ago and I watched along, I do find it interesting. Either the owner of the bar or the “chef” are not receptive to “change”.
The bar from last night’s show, The Bone (formerly The Chicken Bone), is where Obama’s illegal immigrant uncle was arrested this past week.
to me it just looks like Gordon Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares with more booze
I’ve watched three or four episodes. The “fixer” is tough and no-nonsense. The “fixees” are amazingly ignorant of common sense and business know-how. I can’t say whether it’s real or manufactured drama - but there’s always drama in every episode. I would assume as some have suggested, the producers encourage the drama to make the show interesting.
I really enjoy this show. Some people have compared it to Kitchen Nightmares but I think it is much better. Kitchen Nightmares touches on the quality of the food and the cleanliness of the kitchen but Bar Rescue actually treats the place like a business. Talking about costs and the average bill per customer etc... Its like an “Entrepreneur 911” where an expert comes in and turns a small business around (and not just a cooking show). Its interesting how many of the lessons on how to run a bar translate to other kinds of businesses.
I’ve seen it in the past, and thought it was interesting.
I watched about 3 minutes of it last night but the bar owner was in such denial, and obviously gonna fight every suggestion, I didn’t want to invest any more time in “stupid”. (The one about the Chicken Bone, with the flames shooting out of the chicken’s patootie on the sign outside.)
BUT, most of these bars are just absolutely, horrifyingly filthy to begin with. Even after the re-hab, if any locals were to watch the program about “their” bar, they’d probably be too nauseated to eat there. I know I would be.
One of my new favorite shows! I really like seeing someone who is struggling get back on their feet and on the path to success.
The advice and corrective actions all seemed well-founded and to fit with what I recall of the neighborhood bars that my grandfather used to own and run in the Orlando area several decades ago.
Saw a few of them. Can you believe the man/owner did not know what his expenses were? No wonder he’s losing money, he was prolly being robbed blind, going out the back door
Forgot to mention, he prolly had a good health inspection rating by county government workers, too....most h.i. don’t inspect real well/or overlook alot, esp if they get kickbacks
