Western Bulldogs party continues with Bailey Smith and other players heading to Perth’s Magnet House
Western Bulldogs players — including the owner of everyone’s favourite mullet: Bailey “Bazlenka” Smith — are continuing to drown their sorrows after a grand final thumping at Optus Stadium, this time with a mid-week party spree at Perth’s Magnet House.
Around 9.30pm last night the team called on Perth’s party prince Bryan Ho for a VIP hook-up to the Ibiza-style club on Murray Street.
Ho, an interior designer behind the club’s — formerly Capitol — makeover in 2020 got the team access to a booth next to the dance floor with bottle service all night and before long he was shooting selfies and downing shots with Bazlenka himself.
The club was packed with long queues outside, and inside the booth was constantly surrounded by adoring fans. Instead of facing the stage most party-goers were fixated on the players, iPhones in hand recording every moment.
Bazlenka was the star attraction as the midfielder — complete with a crocodile tee, pearl necklace and sunnies — was mobbed by fans any time he stepped out of the booth.
Cody Weightman was also among the players who happily snapped selfies with the crowd throughout the night.
Despite being a Melbourne-based club, the athletes’ popularity caught the attention of many wannabe WAGs, some climbing under the barricades into the area, with the risk paying off for a few lucky ladies catching the attention of players.
Meanwhile, Bazlenka got cosy with a mystery brunette for much of the night.
The players splashed the cash, taking turns to order litres of Belvedere vodka. It was also rumoured that the Melbourne Demons players were upstairs also celebrating hard.
At one point the DJ played the Demon’s club song followed by a mash up of tantalising samples of current and retro hits to get the dance floor heaving.
