Dating app Bumble is opening a brick-and-mortar cafe in New York City to serve as a "safe space for healthy and equitable relationships and connections" made through their app.
Dubbed as the Bumble Brew, the cafe will team up with NYC-based Italian restaurant Pasquale Jones to provide guests an all-day cafe and wine bar designed for first dates and making connections. Bumble prides itself on being a progressive dating app, as it's the first matching service where women make the first move in chat.
Bumble Brew's amenities take inspiration from the app's bright yellow color scheme, as rounded edges dominate the lounge and bar areas that customers will frequent while out on the town with their dates, friends, or business partners.
The endeavor was inspired by their Bumble Hive events, pre-pandemic pop-up events that offered customers all-in-one meals, interactive sessions, and talks while connecting with fellow users. With the events happening worldwide in Soho, London, and Los Angeles, "our community clearly had an appetite for a permanent physical location to connect," Bumble shared.
Bumble Brew is set to open to the public on July 24 at Kenmare Street in the Nolita neighborhood of downtown New York City.
