Bar Rescue TV show coming to Brickhouse Bar & Grill

Posted By on Thu, Jun 9, 2016 at 3:50 PM

It can be hard to admit your business is going so badly that you need help. I can't imagine doing it on national TV, like Woodland Park restaurant Mangia Mangia did, eventually appearing on Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares in April 2014. But maybe the  biker bar with a boner, Brickhouse Bar & Grill, is just trying to fit in with its shiny, hip neighbors as the New South End gentrifies. 

Whatever the case, Spike TV reality show Bar Rescue has come to Colorado Springs to renovate. Though owner Jon Nicholls only had a moment to speak this morning, he told us that he's been working on bringing Bar Rescue in for around a year, ultimately beating out three other downtown Colorado Springs establishments he did not name. 

As of now, there's no word when host Jon Taffer will be coming by, or when the bar will be renovated. But they'll certainly have their work cut out — while waiting for Nicholls, I overheard problems including faulty tap lines and water damage in the basement.
