ABOUT US

OUR STORY

A chef, a lawyer, a drag queen and a DJ walk into a bar...well, they didn't all walk in at the same time. R House started life as part restaurant and part art gallery in 2014 when business partners and husbands Rocco Carulli and Owen Bale opened R House as one of the first restaurants in Wynwood. 

Along the way, they met a supremely talented drag diva Athena Dion and a superstar DJ Jody McDonald, and the chemistry was obvious. Our nationally acclaimed drag brunch was born. Today R House continues to make a statement with an ever-expanding roster of entertainment and a revitalized Latin culinary program that has crowds coming back again and again for more and MORE.

ROCCO CARULLITHE CHEF

The r in r house. the man who had the vision.

R House wouldn't exist if Chef Rocco hadn't had been inspired by the potential of pre-gentrification Wynwood back in 2011. After leading a successful restaurant business in Provincetown, MA for 13 years, Chef Rocco was inspired to open Rocco's House, now known as R House, a place where guests from all walks of life could come together to experience the exuberant hospitality that he is famous for. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Chef Rocco heads up the R House culinary and mixology programs.
