Tonight’s episode was filmed back in February 2018 and Jon decided to change the name of Eliphino Dive and Dine to the Shattered Bar. The Shattered Bar is owned and operated by John W McDonnell.
Out Of Business
Former bar owner John McDonnell shut down the Shattered Bar last October, a full six months before tonight’s Bar Rescue episode broadcast. John could easily be described as an unhappy camper. He had been hoping the publicity from the airing of tonight’s episode would help boost the bar’s bottom line, and contribute to its ongoing success. But due to the 14-month delay between the actual rescue and the broadcast, John wasn’t able to keep the bar above water.
You can check out what John wrote about his Bar Rescue experience below – but before we go there, lets take a closer look at some of the players in tonight’s episode:
