On tonight’s episode of Bar Rescue, Jon Taffer and his crew are in St. Petersburg, Florida to try to rescue the Buffalo City Bar & Grille.

While Taffer didn’t exactly change the name of the Buffalo City Bar & Grille, it is now known as BCBG.

Buffalo City Bar & Grille (BCBG) is owned by Doreen Levy, who just happens to be from Buffalo, New York.

Tonight’s episode was filmed back in February 2019.

According to a post-rescue review published in the Tampa Bay Times, BCBG “is practically unrecognizable as the same business.”

As per the article:

It still features two full-service bars, and pool and darts. The front windows are covered in one-way film that appears red and white from outside but is almost totally transparent from inside. Cool touch.

The dining area is now dubbed The Apothecary, and ST PETE is emblazoned on the back wall in huge block letters floating above white brick. The ceiling tiles have been mercifully painted black from their original nicotine-beige, and there are even some houseplants in the mix.

A Closer Look

We are newly renovated by Bar Rescue and are now non-smoking and are working on a new delicious menu from the BCBG.
