5th & Vine (Rhythm & Brews) From Bar Rescue Has Closed

5th & Vine bar in Staten Island, New York, which appeared on season four of Bar Rescue has closed.  The bar posted a video on their Facebook Page on November 13th titled 'The End', which had a slide show of pictures from the past.  Also, owner Erik Lachow's posted this on his Facebook Page on November 12th, "This Saturday night is the last night to party down with the cast of 5th & Vine. Don't miss out on the memories!"

Also, the day after, Erik posted, "I want to thank everyone for coming down last night! It was nuts! I'm very sorry that i didnt get to talk to so many of you cause we were mobbed and working with archaic tools ( no soda guns, everything running out). I apologize to so many people i just waved too. Thank you so much for the love anyway."

5th & Vine was actually shut down by the health department in April of 2016, but quickly reopened after fixing their issues.  In another recent article, owner James said about Bar Rescue, "Short term, it helped slightly."

5th & Vine appeared on Bar Rescue in October of 2014 on season 4 of the show and it is the fifth bar from that season to close.  They also kept the name given to them by Bar Rescue until they closed. The Bar Rescue Updates Page has been updated to show 5th & Vine as closed.

Murphy's Law (Money Bar) From Bar Rescue Has Closed

Murphy's Law in Reno, Nevada from season 4 (3rd set) of Bar Rescue has closed.  When Jon Taffer and Bar Rescue were there, they renamed the bar to Money Bar, but the bar quickly went back to their original name of Murphy's Law.

On August 24th, 2016, the bar posted on Facebook:
"Hey all you guys who have been with us through all the thick and thin of Murphy's adventures, bar rescue lol, and our new friends: We will be closed temporarily while a new owner is coming in. Hopefully Monday it will reopen and look for exciting changes and some familiar faces. It is Reno lol!! Hope to see you all soon!"

Then on October 4th, 2016 the bar followed up with:
"Well time for an update.. Murphy's Law is officially done in more ways then one. To all the friends and supporters I bid you well!!! As far as the new Jimmy B's coming in, I wouldn't go near that if my life depended on it!!!!! Pm me if you would like more details.My name is Maria Bedient and I support this message."

So Maria was still involved with the bar despite Jon Taffer suggesting on the episode that she should no longer be apart of the bar.  It also looks like the sale wasn't too smooth based on Maria's message. This is the first bar from season 4(3rd set) of Bar Rescue to close and the Bar Rescue Updates Page has been updated with this information.
