Jon Taffer knew the daunting task that was facing him down when he agreed to rescue the Bungalow Bar in Rockaway, NY, in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. He seemingly did the impossible and turned a devastated bar into a symbol of hope.
The owners of J.A. Murphy's in Fell's Point, MD, treat their bar like a never-ending keg party. This is problematic enough, but when Taffer looks at the rotting foundation of this building he sets out to tackle the real problem with this bar.
While watching J.A. Murphy's in Fells Point, MD, Jon Taffer eyes a chef serve his daughter after touching raw chicken. If you know anything about Jon Taffer, you know that he does not stand for this, especially when it has to do with his family.
Taffer's brush with Paulie, the owner of The Canyon Inn in Yorba Linda, CA, comes in at #8 on his countdown of angriest moments. Paulie thinks he's right despite the fact that he hasn't gotten paid in three months.
Rick and Randy are owners of RG's lounge in Independence, MO. They also happen to be identical twins. Their fraternal bond is constantly coming under duress as a result of this bar. Taffer needs to be a family counselor as well as a bar professional on this one.
At The Alibi in Las Vegas, NV, Taffer can barely believe his eyes when he looks behind the bar. He sees a drunken disorderly staff and management that just doesn't care. This leads to an altercation that you won't want to miss.
