Photos from Copper Rocket's 'Bar Rescue' grand reopening


Maitland watering hole Copper Rocket is currently being profiled on the Spike TV reality show Bar Rescue, and we have a few photos of the new remodel.


The grand reopening is actually being filmed tonight, May 27, but producers on the show gave Orlando Weekly a quick preview of the new digs before the episode airs.

Though Copper Rocket will keep its original name, something that almost never happens on Bar Rescue, the bar did receive a sizable facelift. Some of the new upgrades include a newly finished bar top, rocket-themed artwork, additional flat screens, a new pool table, new furniture (including a new patio set), and two brand new two-touch POS systems.  

Producers on the show could not give a specific air date for the episode. However, new episodes of Bar Rescue air on Sundays at 9 p.m. EST and we'll let you know when a firm date is announced.

Watch the videos below for a behind the scenes glimpse of the episode.
