Plot Synopsis

In this reality series, bar expert and sommelier Tom Powers travels across America, as he helps prospective bar owners scout and evaluate locations for their first establishment. From dive bars in Pennsylvania to an Irish pub in the American heartland of Kansas, BAR HUNTERS helps everyday people follow their dreams of opening a bar of their very own. For each client, Tom hunts down three high potential spots, revealing how each location can be transformed into the ultimate money making investment, while identifying the positives and negatives of each locale. Tom gives his expert opinion, ranking each space on a scale of one to 10 for success, but the decision is in the hands of the bar newbies, who must decide which space fits their budget and concept. In each 30-minute episode, Tom gives advice to one ownership group about three different locations in their city, including: Tempe, AZ, where Tom helps two longtime friends, Ben Levine and Lars Havens, find the perfect location for their down and dirty All-American country bar; Dallas, TX, where Tom helps a father, Scott Tallis, and his two sons, Bryan and Alan, who want to invest $750,000 to open a California beach-themed bar; Kittanning, PA, where Tom helps Steve Craven, Jennifer Heymers, and Eric Hack open a dive bar outside Pittsburgh that will feature live music; and many more places where people want to open brew houses and clubs throughout the United States.
