Jon Taffer brings his lifetime of experience managing bars to save establishments that are on the verge of shutting down on his reality show Bar Rescue. But despite his efforts, some bars still go under. Here are some of the bars that didn't survive, even after being rescued.
Weber's Place in Reseda California, was a strip club before entrepreneur Kervin Clinton bought it in 2007 to turn it into a place that focused on live music. He wasn't making enough money, and on top of that, his employees were stealing some of the money he did have. Clinton was thousands of dollars in debt when he called for Jon Taffer's help.
Taffer took down any décor that still remained from when the bar was a strip club, like giant red lips that opened up to the kitchen. He also set up a closed-circuit television system so that Clinton could keep an eye on his staff at any given time. He wanted the bar to lose its identity as a live music place, because some of the best live music spots, such as the Troubadour, were just a few blocks away on Sunset Boulevard. Taffer brought in a Caribbean theme as an ode to Clinton's Caribbean roots and renamed the place Weber's Rum Bar and Grill.
Unfortunately, the bar was not able to maintain the standards set by Taffer. According to Bar Rescue Updates, patrons complained of poor service and not being able to get most things listed on the menu. A year after the episode was aired in 2012, the bar closed.

  • Anyone afraid of 3 or more motorcycles outside a place shouldn't be welcome as they're idiots to start with. All these bars are aimed at big city yuppy scum.

  • Refusing to listen to Jon Taffer and follow his ideas is like a doctor refusing to listen to an experienced surgeon and then trying to perform surgery with a pocket knife. If you aren't going to learn from the experts, WTF are you in business? Are their egos that huge? Lonnie Walker, the female musician running a supposedly hippie bar with her son, was a classic disaster. She can't bear to give up living in 1969 or admit her "music" isn't what anyone wants to hear. She should be running a day-care center for pre-school kids, not trying to sell drinks to adults. I'm her age but I sure as hell wouldn't go in that bar to use the toilet, much less listen to her "music" or order a drink. Sorry, babe, but the '60s are long gone, along with your investment.
