On tonight’s episode of Bar Rescue, Jon Taffer and his team are in Fort Worth, Texas to rescue the Whiskey Girl Saloon. As part of the rescue, Taffer decided to change the name of the Whiskey Girl Saloon to The Stampede Saloon.
Located in the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, the Whiskey Girl Saloon operates just two nights a week and is reportedly losing $6,000 a month. The makeover went down in mid-March 2019.
