Cork date for X Factor's Rylan

Love-him-or-hate-him X Factor contestant Rylan Clarke is set to launch a new look in one of Cork's nightspots.

Rylan will be accompanied at the opening of a new-look Chambers bar on Washington St, renamed Ruby Lounge Bar and Nightclub, on Sunday, December 30.

He will be joined on stage by Cork girl band Grenade, and the best of Cork’s drag stars.

Speaking about the upcoming launch Ruby Lounge manager Dermot Hickey said: "Even though it is a gay bar we are completely heterosexual friendly!...We want Ruby Lounge to become the establishment anyone will feel comfortable in."

Tickets to the event are €15 and must be booked online. Doors open at 7pm. This event is strictly over 18s.
