Bottoms Up Bar & Grill - Bar Rescue Update

In this week's episode of Bar Rescue, Jon Taffer and crew are in Stanton, California to rescue Bottoms Up Bar & Grill.  Bottoms Up Bar & Grill is a bar where the bartenders are dressed in skimpy outfits and Jon Taffer finds them acting out of control.  Maria Menounos and Keven Undergaro are doing recon for Jon and they are offered an "ass shot."  Jon also sees that the manager is lacking the courage to control the staff and the owner Suzie is ready to sell the bar.

During the Bar Rescue makeover, Jon Taffer decided to keep the name of Bottoms Up Bar & Grill. Let's take a look at some information, reviews, and updates for Bottoms Up Bar & Grill since Bar Rescue came and made all of the changes to the bar (All reviews are post-Bar Rescue):

  • Here are the reviews for Bottoms Up from Yelp and Google
    • The reviews before the makeover were not too bad with averages of 4 and 4.3 out of 5 stars.


During the Bar Rescue makeover, Jon Taffer decided to keep the name of Bottoms Up Bar & Grill.  The owners of Bottoms Up Bar & Grill also have five total Bottoms Up locations, so they were most likely against any type of name change.  Since they own five total bars, it also means the owners are probably not struggling as much as usual Bar Rescue owners are portrayed to be struggling.  The makeover happened in late February and the bar had to close in mid-March due to government regulations on social distancing.  With only a few weeks open after the makeover, there were not any reviews either positive or negative.  It is hard to see what kind of impact Bar Rescue has made on the bar without it being open very long before the episode aired.
