We know where you'll be drinking this weekend.

Rob and Dave Kearney have combined forces with Sean O'Brien and Jamie Heaslip to launch Lemon & Duke, a hip new bar just off Dublin's Grafton Stret.

The sophisticated spot is located in the Royal Hibernian Way and we can already assume that it's going to be one of the capital's hottest drinking destinations.

The industrial chic, contemporary décor, complete with mid-century Danish interiors, looks like the perfect backdrop to showcase its fashionable clientele.

The lads have already made a success out of The Bridge in Ballsbridge, along with business partner Noel Anderson, and they're eager to get stuck in with their latest venture.

They promise "good food, tank beer, a unique draft range and a stylish but welcoming vibe".

And the four rugby players are no silent backers – so expect to see the first pints being pulled by some famous faces. Maybe we'll even see the Kearney brothers slinging mojitos?

Anderson says: "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."

Lemon & Duke will open seven days from 10am for coffees and pastries. Lunch is served from 11am to 3pm and evening food is served between 3 and 10pm
