* OldShame: In extremely rare cases, Taffer has openly regretted a few rescues. Justified considering the owners involved had gone back to their original ways after Taffer left. The most prominent case of this is Piratz Tavern which went back to its original decor as quickly as it could and closed down a few years later.

** ''Homestead Rescue'', which is about rescuing Homesteads that are on the brink of destruction.


* FollowTheLeader: The show is essentially ''Series/KitchenNightmares'', but in bars. Also the main difference from ''Kitchen Nightmares'' is that while it still has a good amount of drama, Bar Rescue focuses on more of the science of how to properly run a bar. Spike also copied the formula four more times. This includes:

** Pat Looney, the former GM of the Abbey Pub in Chicago and the older son of the family who owned it, is clearly visible grabbing at the baseball in shots of the infamous Steve Bartman play. ESPN [[http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/eticket/story?page=110927/patlooney even did a profile on him about it.]]


* ExecutiveMeddling: While it exists, Taffer has no tolerance for blaming the show for the bar's actual problems. When accused of planting a liquor bottle full of fruit flies behind the bar, a ''very'' irate Taffer asks the bar own if he really thinks Taffer went out with a bunch of little traps and caught the fruit flies one by one to put in the bottle.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Apparently, O-Face was being planned to be turned into a railroad themed bar, given the nearby train yards, as part of its rescue. But as noted on the main page, the rescue never actually took place because the owners and most of the staff were so completely intolerable.
