Episode Recap

Garnet Lounge Bar Rescue Episode Update

In the Garnet Lounge episode of Bar Rescue, Jon Taffer and his crew visit what is originally named The Alibi Casino, a motorcycle bar in Las Vegas, NV.

According to Jon, the bar has an “inept owner” and a “staff of busty cougars”. Other fun tidbits include a blow up doll in the bar.

In order to help save the bar, Jon makes the decision to rebrand it to the Garnet Lounge. As you might expect from the name, this is a decidedly more upscale approach than the original concept.

Garnet Lounge Update - What Happened Next?

Garnet Lounge closed for good at the end of 2013/beginning of 2014. On December 31, 2013, they posted this goodbye message on their Facebook:

With more regret than words can express, we have to close our business and accept the defeat brought to us by our economy and the changes in our industry. Our last night will be tomorrow night, New Year’s Eve. Please come out and see us, have some drinks and say goodbye. We will miss serving you at the Alibi and Garnet Lounge and will update you as our incredible crew finds new homes.

So while Garnet Lounge did technically make it into 2014, it was only for one day!

The fact that Garnet Lounge closed a mere ~2 months after its episode aired on Spike TV means it is far from one of Jon’s successes.

Oh well, bon voyage Garnet Lounge and Alibi Casino!
