*** 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.]]

** 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.

* UltimateJobSecurity: Usually one of the main problems is one of the employees know full well that the Boss is too weak to fire anyone or is friends with the Boss. Because of this they usually barely work or just cause problems for everyone else because they know they don't have to work. Guess who is the first person Taffer orders the Boss to fire.

** Tthe Pro Punch from Pro's Sports Bar. A big glass with one shot of pretty much everything behind the bar (the bartender mentions tequila, rum, gin, and vodka, and doesn't stop there,) totaling about 8 ounces of liquor. One sip, the guy doing recon immediately choked, and compared it to lighter fluid.

** The "WhereAreTheyNow" Epilogue to each episode, only account for typically about 6 weeks after Taffer leaves the bar, and is almost often almost unfailingly positive for the bar, often in sales. This is still all within the period of the buzz of a place being on TV and getting a remodeling and menu update. After four years and 80 episodes, there has been only two "Revisit" episodes that only touched on a few of the bars. While the show has a fast production time from episode filming to airing on TV, there's often still a 3 to 6 month gap, meaning it not that unusual to find reviews of bars that are supposedly doing great are hated by customers or has gone back to its old ways, and mentioning it's empty again.

** On a "Back to the Bar" episode, Sal from Six Point Inn and Chef Pink (who butted heads in the original episode) have a gravy-making contest, with the audience picking a winner by blind taste test and voting by applause. Sure enough, Chef Pink wins (albeit by a respectably narrow margin)... and to say that Sal does not take it well is just a bit of an understatement.
