5th & Vine Bar Rescue
On the fourth season of Bar Rescue, a Portland, Oregon, restaurant named 5th & Vine made its debut. The restaurant is now closed, but it still holds its Bar Rescue name. 5th & Vine hired new staff after the premiere and kept its wine bar theme. Although 5th & Vine has received mixed reviews, the owners posted updates to their Facebook page. Many customers have praised this restaurant.
Lori and Stu, her boyfriend, order margaritas during their visit. They are impressed by the taste. The food and drinks at the bar are now a step above the average. The bar staff is handling the crowd with ease and the three new POS machines are helping the bar employees. It is a busy night at the bar. Jon’s 5th and Vine bar rescue has worked, and Jon is glad he chose to save it.
Although sales have increased steadily since the revamp, the bar could not keep up with Taffer’s standards. It was infested with roaches and staff was not paid. By November of that year, the bar reverted to its old name. Ultimately, it closed its doors. Luckily, the owners made a smart decision in choosing the name 5th & Vine. However, 5th & Vine’s success is not a guarantee. It is crucial to have a good business plan.
Five weeks after the episode of 5th & Vine Bar Rescue, the restaurant had a 50% increase in sales. The owners’ libido overpowered them and the bar was not managed well. After the restaurant failed a health inspection, the health department closed it down in April 2016. The place could be saved by a better management team and a more expensive menu.
5th & Vine is owned by Steve and Erik Winchow. They bought the bar in 2003 for $50 000. Despite the bar’s success, it was also home to a raucous biker gang. The twin brothers purchased the bar as an investment. Their Facebook page displays their plans to reopen the bar. The bar’s owners have posted several updates since the episode aired.
On the first season, the restaurant was known as Rhythm & Brews. The episode aired and the restaurant was renamed Rhythm & Brews. However, the business was shut down by ungraded health inspectors. Customers and health inspectors both liked the new name. However, the restaurant closed again a few months later and faced the same fate as the previous season. Despite being a huge success, the episode still evokes controversy six years after its debut.
Jon is not sure whether he can save the bar after all. He drives around with Josh to see the market, then meets with the owners’ families. Jon encourages the owners to take part in the stress test. The owner tells Jon that the bar is too messy, but Steve counters that it’s not. Jon is wrong to think that the bar is as messy as Jon believes. Jon has to convince the owners to change for the better.
