Keeping a bar or restaurant open takes a lot of work, and sometimes it takes an outsider's perspective to suggest changes to improve business. That's where Bar Rescue comes in.
Starring Jon Taffer, a food and beverage industry consultant who specializes in nightclubs, bars and pubs, the reality show aims to save businesses from closing. Each episode, Taffer and his crew travel to different establishments around the country that are struggling in order to help them turn over a new leaf and keep the doors open.
Several bars in Tennessee have been featured on the show, but unfortunately most have shut their doors.
