RESTAURANT/BAR CONSULTANT, AUTHOR AND TV PERSONALITY JON TAFFER DISCUSSES THE HIGHLY RATED TV SHOW "BAR RESCUE" "BAR RESCUE" RETURNS WITH ITS 100TH EPISODE ON SUNDAY, MARCH 6TH ON SPIKE TV Restaurant-bar consultant, author and TV personality Jon Taffer talks about the return of the highly rated TV show "Bar Rescue"  on March 6 at 10/9c on Spike TV. A native New Yorker with an amusing approach, Taffer turns failing pubs into popular hot spots by firmly changing everything--food, drinks, music, employee and customer relations and often with  push-back from the owners, managers and employees. Most recent cities where bars were rescued include Cleveland, Detroit, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Tampa, Phoenix, L.A., N.Y., Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Chicago, Miami, San Francisco, Reno, Portland and San Diego. A Nightclub Hall of Fame inductee, Taffer started in Chicago and has worked with more than 800 bars nationwide since the late 70s.  Yet, it's still challenging work, given 1 in 4 pubs close or change owners within the first year and after three years, a staggering 3 in 5 will shutter.
