WHILE next week will see the rugby World Cup kick-off in France, this week has seen a new bar with strong rugby ties make its presence felt on the Dublin nightlife scene.
Former Ireland stars Jamie Heaslip, Sean O’Brien and Kearney brothers Dave and Rob opened the doors to what is their fourth pub.
All of the group’s bars are situated in the capital with Little Lemon being an adjoining venue to Lemon & Duke which they also own.
For those unaware where they can find the pair of lemons, they’re situated just off Grafton Street on Royal Hibernian Way.
The ex-rugby stars first waded into the pub trade in 2014 when they acquired The Bridge 1859 boozer located a stone’s throw from the RDS.
They then expanded their portfolio with their investment in The Blackrock.
Among its menu are bouillabaisse, halloumi saganaki, pimentón chicken, seafood vinaigrette and pork belly.
Speaking at a small launch on Wednesday August 25, Group Managing Director Anderson explained their reasoning for opting for a Mediterranean theme this time round.
He said: “People really enjoy the lighter way of dining and socialising that they experience on their holidays to the Mediterranean.
“Our research, and indeed our experience from our other venues, has shown that some people really want that type of experience to be available in Dublin.
“That is the central idea behind Little Lemon and it is why we are really excited to be opening this new venue.
“We think this will offer a really fresh approach that will be unique in Dublin and will provide a bright and flavourful, socialising experience right in the heart of our city.”
