AL and Tom speak to Brad Bohannan, co-owner of one of the most famous bars in the world. Erik Pflueger completes the team. Today’s guest inspired him in a big bad way, so this is a big deal for Erik.
Once upon a time a man called John Taffer turned up to Brad’s bar, which had a completely different name, interior and er….cup. Mr Taffer transformed Brad’s bar on a TV show called Bar Rescue. The transformation of what we now know as Spirits On Bourbon was so impactful that the iconic blue skull cup that was created, is one of the most sought after cups in America and the bar went on to make $1m a year!
In the episode we find out how Brad’s bar ended up on Bar Rescue, his relationship with John Taffer, how the bar is doing now, Covid-19 and how it effected him. Erik has made some art for Brad to say thank you for inspiring him so much.
