In six seasons, Spike TV's Bar Rescue has visited six Arizona bars to hopefully bring them out of the red and into the profit-making green.

Last year, Jon Taffer and his team visited a Tempe bar known then as Baseline Sports Bar, home of the "Baseline Babes." At the time, the biker bar had no rules, even touting "spaghetti wrestling" as one of its highlights.

After Taffer's team came in with a new drink menu, some paint and a new name -- it's now called "Brick and Barley: A Neighborhood Bar" -- mixologist Daniel Ponsky is back to check on the bar's progress.

Owner A.J. Hunter tells Ponsky in the clip that the cocktails his team created were tossed down the drain.

“We still have our core group here and that core group is the beer drinker. And I understand we’re really trying to appeal to women, but our core group here is men. So what we did is we sort of went with the Irish Mule because that seems to be something that the guys will order," Hunter says in the clip.

She also said that they've hired chefs since the TV crew first visited last year.

"I expected to see a lot more female faces when I walked in the door. We have failed," said Ponsky.

The episode airs Sunday, March 12 at 10 p.m. on Spike TV. View schedule.
