Johnny Prep Takes Over Management of Iconic Mr. B’s Pub in Royal Oak

I have some good news to share. . . Earlier in June, I took over over management of Mr. B’s Pub, the iconic, 30-year-old restaurant on Main Street in Royal Oak, Michigan. I’m officially a restaurant owner!

mrbspub1The B’s brand has been popular for a long time, and my plans are to build on that reputation. The team will enhance the menu by making more dishes, condiments, sauces and soups from scratch, and creating a culinary culture that’s focused on fun.

mrbspub2Diners will notice these changes as they are rolled out in stages over the next several months. I’m also planning on including an updated menu that retains Mr. B’s’ most popular items, state of the art sports viewing, live blues and jazz music in addition to existing DJ-driven dance nights and an expanded catering and events opportunities in the banquet facilities.

A little history. . . Mr. B’s was among the first sports bars in metro Detroit. It has expanded over the decades and now occupies 9,000 square feet at Main and Third Streets. In 2012, Mr. B’s added a martini lounge that flanks the main seating room. I plan to use the upscale space for craft beer, wine and food tastings.

I’m excited for this next venture! If you are ever in the Detroit area, come out and see me at Mr. B’s.
