With slick new bars popping up all over our capital city in recent years, it takes something extra special to make the ladies here at SHEmazing! HQ sit up and take notice.
So props to Rob Kearney, Dave Kearney, Sean O’Brien and Jamie Heaslip – see what we did there? – for giving the city's Royal Hibernian Way a major injection of oomph by opening a new bar which can take you from after-work drinks to full-on Friday feels.
And in case you think this is the lads' first venture into the world of gastronomy, think again.
Hot on the heels of the success enjoyed by their recently extended Ballsbridge bar, The Bridge, the lads have decided to move a little closer to the hubbub of the capital's most iconic street.
Situated at the junction of Lemon and Duke St, the aptly named bar is a combination of everything we love about heading out – good beer, good food, and good decor .. oh, and a quartet of Ireland's most talented and – let's face it – delish sports stars.
Styled by interior specialists O’Donnell O’Neill Design, the bar combines timber, copper and leather aesthetics to create a slick environment in which to get your drank on.
Commenting on the exciting new venture, Lemon & Duke's managing director, Noel Anderson, said: "We’re very excited to open the doors of Lemon & Duke."
"It's been an extremely busy summer working on this project and the extension of The Bridge 1859. I’m really looking forward to working with the four guys to replicate the success of our venture in Ballsbridge,"
And hey, if you head to today's opening, you may just be served by Rob himself…
