Filming Today: Bar Rescue at Downey’s

Spike TV’s new series Bar Rescue is filming at Downey’s on South Street today through Thursday. The show follows Jon Taffer (slick web site), a restaurant and bar consultant as he remakes struggling bars with his “in-your-face” style and a method of management called “Taffer Dynamics.”

Downey’s has been situated at Front and South since 1976 and it’s bi-level corner location overlooking South Street and the Delaware Riverfront certainly offers “good bones.”

Downey’s receives Taffer’s expertise today through Thursday and Swanky Bubbles will be subjecting itself to the same scrutiny next week. The series will debut sometime this summer.
