— Glenwood South nightclub Cashmere will unveil its new concept on Saturday night, WRAL's Out and About has learned. 

Spike TV's "Bar Rescue" has been filming there all week. 

On "Bar Rescue" nightlife expert Jon Taffer and his team redo struggling bars. They teach the bar and kitchen staff proper techniques and completely redo the menu and physical appearance of the location. He has even brought in experienced DJs to help train the house ones. 

Before beginning the transformation, Taffer normally checks Yelp reviews for the bar and sends in someone to do reconnaissance. Yelp reviews for Cashmere have criticized the staff, especially the DJ who they say changes the songs just as people are getting into the music. 

Cashmere staff went through a "stress test" on Wednesday night to help identify their weaknesses. 

The new Cashmere will be unveiled around 8 p.m. Saturday night, bar representatives said. 

Garner's Characters Quarters got the Bar Rescue makeover last week and re-launched last Friday night. And we have heard rumors they are headed to Durham to redo a bar there next week. No word on which bar it is yet!
