Bar Rescue is hosted by Jon Taffer, one of the country's top restaurant and bar consultants. The show gives failing nightlife establishments one last chance at success. Over the course of the series, one bar per week in cities all around the country will be reborn under the watchful eye of Taffer. With each venue, Taffer delves into every business facet of running a bar, from creating a profitable drink/food menu, to music selection, to managing crowds as well as dealing with disgruntled employees.

Taffer will use his "in-your-face" style along with his renowned method of management called "Taffer Dynamics" to transform the bar into a vibrant, profitable establishment. He will utilize everything from state-of-the-art science such as eye tracking technology, monitoring of body temperature and even reading pheromone output in patrons in order to create an ambitious plan of action. Taffer will focus on one establishment per episode from cities all around the country. Taffer's wife, Nicole, will appear in the show along with a rotating group of experts.
