Where Would You Like to See Bar Rescue Rescue?

jon-taffer-bar-rescueWith Jon Taffer in town we got to thinking, what bar would you like to see the show “Bar Rescue” rescue?

Maybe a favorite watering hole that’s on the downside of ramshackle? A bar where the food has gone from basic to sketchy? Or has implemented a theme that’s just plain bad-for-business.

  • The Real Richard Cranium

    Send him to McGillins. Maybe just maybe he can get rid of the High School Gym smell that permeates that place.

  • Charles Southgate

    Strip Joint

  • Steve

    The Headhouse on lombard between 2nd and front….that place is terrible!

  • lizard

    strip joint – so much potential there, but godawful concept

  • Joanna B

    I heard they were already at Lickety Split and also checked out Michael’s Place in South Philly

  • Mr. Sparkles

    Swanky Bubbles or Downey’s. Either place could really use his hel… oh wait. Womp, womp.

    A lot of bars I’d like to see aren’t necessarily doing poorly, many rake in cash and thus feel no need to improve. There are a bunch of other closed bars I wish Tapper could resurrect.

    Lickety Split is a good choice. I had no idea it was there until friends’ band played there, and was disappointed. Also, a roach walked right in front of me on the bar. I know pretty much every joint on south street has them, but usually they’re not so brazen.

    It will be interesting to see him tackle urban bars again. So many of the bars he’d fixed have been in strip malls, I wonder if his advice works so well in a competitive market.

    That being said, I’d nominate Locust Bar. He can tell them to stop allowing smoking and clean up. That or South Philly Bar and Grill, which is basically empty during the week and looks like a biker bar on weekends.

      What’s with the No Smoking as your idea? We go there TO Smoke, dumbass. I’d like to see a bar with an excellent ventilation system in which no one complains like this dope. Concept is one thing, but with only a handful of smoking bars in town, and You want to get rid of one? Just don’t go there anymore, Mayor Nutter. Stay home where no one and nothing can offend your delicate senses. Jerk.
      Can’t wait to see if they can bring back the original glory that made Lickety Split so damn cool. Maybe the 2nd Story or The Black Banana?
