Bath time for BOD and the boys in popular Brian's new venture
Krystle co-manager Brian O'Malley is quitting the celebrity nightclub after setting up his own pub -- The Bath.
And in a case of perfect timing, the venue's opening night at Bath Avenue, Dublin 4, was certainly an affair to remember, given that it coincided with Ireland's 42-10 win against Italy.
Dubliner Brian, whose brother is Leinster player Eoin O'Malley, was rushed off his feet on Saturday night as many of his sports star pals popped in to show their support.
The man that Eoin replaced in the No 13 position, injured sports champ Brian O'Driscoll, was also seen enjoying a lads' night out after his other half Amy Huberman jetted over to LA for a pre-Oscar party. He had Tweeted about the venue a few days previously as he showed his support for long-term pal Brian.
The venue was jam-packed with revellers as word got out that some of the players were in there celebrating, with DJ Gordon Johnson behind the decks.
The rugby lads were also joined by soccer star Sean St Ledger and MCD's Damien O'Donoghue, who led many of the troops in to Krystle after to continue the party.
The Bath Avenue pub was previously known as Murrays, but it closed down two months ago and had been vacant before Brian took over the lease.
A source close to Brian has explained how he just felt it was "time to move on" from working at the celebrity haunt.
Brian, who dates talented artist Nina de Vito (pictured), has spent thousands of euros kitting out the pub with a giant bat placed in the corner of the smoking area, with the pub encircled by a white picket fence.
