Bar Rescue executive producer, host, and nightclub consultant Jon Taffer is like Jesus, except he saves bars. He has the ability to take a failing bar and turn it into a profitable one, and he does it within days.
On Spike TV's Bar Rescue, Taffer shows us how this is done. West Palm Beach residents in 2012 may remember when he took the bar formerly known as Mystique and transformed it into Aura, shedding the skin of the bar's unsuccessful past.
Recently, Taffer traveled to Spirits on Bourbon in New Orleans -- one of his most successful turn-arounds -- to visit with co-owners Steve Smith and Brad Bohannan and to sign copies of his new book, Raise the Bar: An Action-Based Method for Maximum Customer Reactions.
