Meet The Owners

The original Judge Roy Bean (or as we like to call it - “JRB”), was opened in 1995 in the heart of midtown manhattan. Long time restauranteurs & owners Peter Pernicone & Derek Walsh re-launched Judge Roy Bean Public House in August of 2014. Their goal was to create a place where locals and tourists alike can feel at home, sipping from a perfectly curated selection of craft beer and spirits, and nibbling on high-end pub fare.  JRB Public House is midtown's favorite craft beer house and restaurant, just steps from 5th avenue and central park offering an eclectic vibe with rustic decor. With 24 beers on tap and 50+ in bottles at all times, we take pride in giving our customers a variety of hand-picked beers for every taste and preference with a variety of classic and seasonal brews.
