Bar Rescue - Madame Dalia's Country Bar (Country Nights) Update

On this week's episode of Bar Rescue, Jon Taffer and crew are in San Antonio, Texas to rescue Country Nights Club.   Country Nights Club is supposedly $144,000 in debt and is losing $4,000 to $6,000 a month.  While Jon is there, he finds bartenders who are drunk and an out of control owner who is trying to serve customers shots out of her cleavage.  The owner Dalia is more worried about her looks and drinking rather than running a successful bar.

During the Bar Rescue makeover, Jon Taffer decided to change the name of Country Nights Club to Madame Dalia's Country Bar and the bar has somewhat kept the name.  It seems they dropped the 'Madame' and they go by Dalia's Country Bar. Let's take a look at some information, reviews, and updates for Dalia's Country Bar since Bar Rescue came and made all of the changes to the bar (All reviews are post-Bar Rescue):

Positive Reviews:
  • "They have great live bands and plenty of dancing room!"

Negative Reviews:

  • "Judge mental crowd. Owner stared my husband, friend and I down the whole time. Only went because it's closest to us and we don't have a car. Going to save for an uber and go to Rocky's next time. Bartender Ed is a friend and regular customer of mine, great Service on his part. Owner always sending employees for beer, limes, and change. Employees are not the problem here. Bad ownership and management are to blame."
  • "Damn they need to handle up on customer service"

Other News and Links:

  • The Bar Rescue episode was filmed in June 2018
  • Here is a 6-minute video preview of the episode from the Paramount YouTube page.
  • Here is the Dalia's Country Bar Facebook page.  You will see there that most of the recent posts have Dalia's Country Bar and the "Madame" is dropped and cropped out of the logo. They also use Country Nights in their advertisements as well.
  • Dalia's Country Bar is having a watch party for the episode. (Link)
  • On Facebook, Dalia's Country Bar advertises the women bartenders that are working there to try to draw more customers.  It appears that Melissa no longer works there, so she wasn't hired back.
  • Here are the Facebook pages of Dalia (owner), Melissa (bartender), and Krystal (bartender)
  • Right after the makeover, people commented on the name change saying it sounded like a brothel.  The bar responded, "He did not mean it in that term he was very adamant about putting my name up there" (Link)
  • There is only 1 Yelp review for the bar, which is from 2015. (Link)
  • Here are the Google reviews which average a 3.7 out of 5 with 38 reviews. (Link)
  • When Bar Rescue was casting bars in San Antonio, they reached out to some bars that were successful, which made them angry. (Link)
  • In Texas, you are able to view the bar receipts for bars every month.  It seems since the Bar Rescue makeover, sales have increased a bit from the year prior, but not by very much. They are around $30,000 a month. (Link)


Country Nights Club was renamed to Madame Dalia's Country by Bar Rescue, and the bar has pretty much kept the name.  They have dropped the "Madame" from the name and they also use both Dalia's Country Bar and Country Nights Club in recent advertisements.  There haven't really been any reviews for the bar since the makeover and there weren't too many before the rescue, so it is hard to tell too much about Dalia's Country Bar.  There was a complaint about ownership and customer service while someone complemented the live music and dancing.  Based on the Texas gross bar receipts for Dalia's Country Bar, the sales have slightly increased from the year before, but they have remained pretty consistent over the years.  We will have to see if there is any increase in sales after the Bar Rescue episode airs.
