Plenty of champagne corks were popping when celeb mecca Krystle celebrated its eighth birthday last week.

The top Harcourt Street club is known as a popular celebrity haunt and their birthday celebrations did not disappoint with Irish soccer players, top models and DJs in attendance on the night.


Krystle certainly knows how to throw a party, with an open bar, a fire breather, exquisite cocktails and a three-tier cake and cupcakes courtesy of top baker The Cupcake Bloke.

Guests included Irish soccer players, the Georgian rugby team, Rangan Aruchelevan, Christina Mahon (pictured), Eva Matou, Sarah Connolly and boyband Hometown.

Louis Walsh's new up-and-coming band took some time out from promoting their new single Where I Belong and rehearsing for Aladdin the panto at the Olympia Theatre.

Their debut single was written by Irish rockers Kodaline and the boys are delighted their track is out there for their fans to enjoy.

"We were lucky to get it because Kodaline said that it didn't suit their new album sound so luckily enough we were able to come in and take it off their hands," band member Ryan explained to the Diary.


They enjoyed a well-deserved night out at the top venue which has had a stellar year as profits soared to €1.4m.

Profits for the Russell Court Hotel - which houses Krystle nightclub and Dicey's pub on Dublin's Harcourt Street - are up 83pc on the €806,809 recorded in 2012.

Accounts now show that the firm's gross profit last year rose 4.5pc to €8.83m.
