'Bar Rescue' Star Jon Taffer Rescuing Bars in Philadelphia Right Now

by Drink Philly on Sep 3, 2014 in Culture

Spike TV’s Bar Rescue is currently at work rescuing bars here in Philadelphia. We know this because, host Jon Taffer tweeted as much on Tuesday.

What we don’t know is, where.

All we can get out of Spike TV reps is confirmation that the show is indeed on location here, and will be rolling cameras and resuscitating ailing bars through Friday, September 12.

Presumably, what’s being shot here will air at some point during the show’s forthcoming season, which premieres on Sunday, October 5.

You’ll recall Philly served as the backdrop for some of Bar Rescue’s most popular episodes with Taffer taking on the the very troubled Downey’s Irish Pub and now defunct Swanky Bubbles in the show’s first season.

Rumors are running rampant on social media about what bars may be getting the Taffer touch, but real, solid intel has yet to emerge.

Have a hunch of where the show might be shooting? Give us a shout on Facebook or Twitter.

[UPDATE] South Street's Lickety Split is now Alleged Bar & Pizza with the upstairs transforming into 2nd State Lounge, while Plush in Glenside has been remade into Osteria Calabria.
