** The owner of the Black Light District was so adamant about keeping the punk rock theme of his bar he fought with Taffer and his staff at every turn and claimed outright he would throw Jon's changes out after he left. They didn't even get to start the renovations before Jon called the entire thing off and left.

** Black Light District Bar has become the third bar that Taffer has walked out and chosen not to rescue, after the owner, Dave, made it clear all he wanted from the show was the free publicity, makeover, upgrades, and that he had no intentions of keeping any of the cocktails or management or theme changes that Bar Rescue was providing.

*** As is the City Bistro episode. Somewhat [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in both cases, as both are located in St. Louis, where Budweiser is based.



*** Subverted in that he returns the next day both times, but he walks out twice during the episode at Underground Wonder. Still, he just flat -ut gives up on talking with the owner Lonie, on both the first night and during the post stress-test review, due to her NeverMyFault attitude. The only reason why he and the experts return the next morning on both occasions is because her son, who has ''much'' better business sense, pleads with Jon to come back and keeps trying to convince his mother to let Taffer help.

* GranolaGirl: Lonie of Underground Wonder Bar. Her vegan influence on the menu wouldn't be bad, if her reasons for not putting traditional bar foods such as chicken wings on the menu weren't so hypocritical and BlatantLies[[note]]She claimed it was because she couldn't get Organic products, yet when expert Chef Pink makes a naan flat bread with sausages on top, Lonnie complains about how she doesn't like the type of bread, to the fact that the sausages have preservatives in them. Chef Pink then points out that the food store bought boxed ready-to-bake pizzas in the bar's fridge are far more processed than her dish.[[/note]]. Her bar's outside appearance that she painted herself looked more childish and didn't fit with the upscale Chicago Neighborhood. And her musical abilities (she was a Jazz Muscian playing in Chicago bars), well... let's just say that some of that ability didn't exactly age well. Finally, she puts out crayons, and paper table covers out for customers to doodle on. When Taffer tries speaking with her, she spends the entire first meeting drawing hearts and "Angry lines" on it rather than paying attention to what he's trying to say.

** Moonrunners Saloon (formerly Characters Quarters) evokes Moonshining and the Bootleggers who would make the trip from mountain stills to the speak easies. Many of its mixed drinks incorporates the (legally produced) moonshine flavors, and serves them in mason jars.

** Taffer has threatened to just walk out and not help the owner on more than one occasion (and sometimes will walk out for a while, or evening to let the owners and staff know just how close they are to having taffer full fledged RageQuit from rescuing them. The one where he finally gave up and did just that was the O'Face Bar.

** Common occurance, particular from those in the management who think what they're doing is correct, but are often wrong, and just attention seeking.
** James from Cashmere. Mr. "All In" pretended that he owned the bar, and that he was a celebrity.... well at least he got the embarrassing public behavior part down right.

** P's and Q's Auto Body (Formerly Artful Dodger/Radio) is designed specifically to resemble a Speakeasy, complete with a false front as a 1930's autos-shop and secret entrance manned by a look out (or in this case, the hosting staff). The name is a refernce to the old term to mind your manners, or in Bar terminology, of "mind your Pints' and Quarts'

* RunningGag: Often spoils things as a ForegoneConclusion, because if Taffer, or the editors find anything worthy of turning into a Running Gag, you can bet whatever, or whoever they are mocking is probably not going to see the end of the episode, or Taffer's going to walk out of the location.
** James and his infamous "All In" verbal tic, with added on whipcrack. [[spoiler: He was fired for failing to show up to training and his terrible attitude.]]
** During his re-rescue of Second Base, Taffer gathers the entire staff around a table to explain the $100,000 dollar costs of having to do yet another remodeling and make over to the location. Every time he gives an important fact about what he's doing (I.E. how people tend to be attracted to places with multiple layers of materials used in the building, or how bars tend to fail if they go through three names, as people regard the location as a failure), he ends each note by looking at Terry, the owner, and going "Did you know that? *moments pause while Terri is silent, or tries weakly hide that he didn't* You didn't know that."

*** It was so bad, in fact, that Taffer [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming offered to help the employees to get jobs at other bars]], thus deliberately sabotaging Steve (ie, the guy he's supposed to be helping). He would later do this again with the staff of Second Base when he aborts his re-rescue.

** The owner of Headhunters was a combination of this and DefiantToTheEnd. He fought every suggestion Taffer put forward, and denied or made excuses for every problem that was pointed out to him. Taffer wasn't even out the door before he started reverting to his old, bad ways, and unsurprisingly, the newly dubbed Metal and Lace [[DarthWiki/DethroningMomentOfSuck closed down with some of the worst reviews ever given to any bar on the show.]]

* BrooklynRage: Taffer himself could be a Trope Exemplar. In addition, several of the bars he has rescued in the NY area have had some of the biggest blowouts between the owners. Examples being The Undisputed (Yonkers) and Jack's Fire Department (Queens).

** Gipsy's owner, Paul, walked out during the relaunch as SBLV. Just as the staff were enjoying the new work environment, he came back two days later and closed it for good.

** Gipsy's owner, Paul, walked out during the relaunch as SBLV. Just as the staff were enjoying the new work environment, he came back two days later and closed it for good. Indeed, Paul had such a poor attitude about it that he literally interrupted Jon's reveal countdown to fire his bartender Brandon, right before he could even ''see'' the renovations.
