Bar 702 bar Rescue Update

Episode Recap

Originally named The Sand Dollar Lounge, Bar Rescue was featured on Season 3 of Bar Rescue. Located in Las Vegas, NV, The Sand Dollar Lounge was in dire need of help from Jon Taffer.

Lisa Guerena purchased The Sand Dollar Lounge in 2009 with help from Dr. Paul Wilkes. Unfortunately, Lisa was struggling with the bar and at the time of the show’s filming was a whopping $300,000 in debt.

This episode is famous for the owner, Dr. Wilkes, allegedly hitting on Jon Taffer’s wife, Nicole.

Jon was, naturally, angry as hell. Though they eventually managed to move past their problems.

Eventually, the bar was reborn as Bar 702. Keep reading to learn more about what happened after the cameras stopped filming.

Bar 702 Update - What Happened Next?

While Bar 702 is still open, it’s not open under the same ownership as appeared on the Bar Rescue episode. In May 2014, the bar was sold. It appears that the new owner reverted Bar 702 back to its original name of The Sand Dollar Lounge.

Reviews of the new ownership look great. The Sand Dollar Lounge has a 4.5-star rating on Yelp, with people complimenting the drinks and service.
