Park 77, later renamed to The Lister, was a San Francisco, California bar that was featured on Season 4 of Bar Rescue.
Though the Lister Bar Rescue episode aired in June 2015, the actual filming and visit from Jon Taffer took place before that.
It was Season 4 Episode 21 and the episode name was “Sticky Situation”.
Park 77 was a struggling bar in San Francisco, California featured in Season 4 of Bar Rescue.
The owners, two brothers named Tano and Wayne, drank on the job and weren’t serious about making Park 77 a successful business.
At the time of filming, Park 77 was a massive $188,000 in debt and in desperate need of help from Jon Taffer and his team.
In order to revive the struggling bar, Jon Taffer rebranded it to The Lister in an attempt to make it the perfect hangout for college students.
Jon and his team did a huge renovation in just 36 hours to make it fit the new theme.
The outdoor design was much more attractive and modern.
Inside, there were also games and heaters to make it nicer for people to hang out.
Of course, Park 77 also got a bunch of new equipment courtesy of Bar Rescue’s sponsors.
As a sidenote, Park 77 was also known for the skeezy act of filming an…adult film inside the bar.
Jon Taffer was not happy, to say the least!
Despite happening almost five years ago, you can still find a Facebook event for the shoot.
I won’t link you to the video, but it is fairly easy to find on sites dedicated to that sort of thing. So yes, Park 77 definitely was the bar that had a skeezy video shot in it.
So was the Park 77 Bar Rescue episode a success? Keep reading our update to learn what happened and how the bar is doing in 2022 and beyond.
The Lister Update - What Happened Next?
Now that we’ve recapped the Lister Bar Rescue episode, let’s talk about what happened to the bar after Jon Taffer and his crew left San Francisco, CA.
In 2016, Jon Taffer revisited The Lister. The bar had torn down the pictures Jon put up and put a Ping Pong table in the middle of the dance floor.
The owners said that the remodel “sucks” and that Jon Taffer was “full of shit”. It doesn’t seem like they were happy, does it?
In an act of rebellion, the owners even brought back the infamous couch from the aforementioned porno that was shot in Park 77.
Though the owners were unhappy with the remodel, The Lister seemed to be limping on and was still open as recently as 2018.
Recent reviews were mixed. Many seemed positive, complimenting the pool table and hookah. But some criticized the high prices and slow service.
Is The Lister from Bar Rescue still open?
The Lister would eventually succumb to the Coronavirus pandemic and other issues. As a result, the Lister closed for good in April 2021.
So, while The Lister did manage to survive for about six years after the Park 77 / The Lister Bar Rescue episode, it has now officially joined our list of Bar Rescue failures.
As of 2022, the old The Lister San Francisco, CA location seems to still be vacant. When a new bar or business moves in, I’ll update this post to reflect that.
