The main problem at this Staten Island bar is the owners: they let patrons walk all over them. Taffer knows that to make this bar a success, he has to instill some NY toughness into these brothers.
Things have gotten so dire at Rhythm & Brews that one of the owners has become homeless. He's now forced to lay his head in the basement of the bar.
Jon Taffer successfully drove the seedy biker element out of the bar and made it a classy wine & cheese hotspot. This is the result.
Rhythm & Brews in Staten Island started out as a booming success. Unfortunately, the recent occupation by bikers has driven away local clientele and their dollars.
The gutless owners at this bar routinely let strangers waltz right into their kitchen. Wait until the end of the clip, because things get "explosive."
Bar Rescue mixologist Russel Grant teaches the staff to make The Soyo Tea.
Taffer re-invigorates this failing bar and comes up with a speakeasy theme. "P's & Q's Auto Body" is now on the short list for coolest bar on Long Island.
The staff at Artful Dodger fails miserably when they allow a supposedly underage girl to drink. This is a giant liability.
Since the service at Artful Dodger is so awful, Taffer brings in a few members of his A-Team to shake things up. Some of their observations don't sit very well with the staff.
In an attempt to find out why Artful Dodger is failing, Taffer and his team head to some of the more successful bars in Huntington.
