Got a match on Bumble? Soon, the “swipe-right” dating app can provide your date location, too – literally.
Bumble, a location-based dating app that allows women to make the first move in heterosexual “matches,” is opening a wine bar in Manhattan this fall.
Bumble Brew will be a coffee shop by day, wine bar by night, serving “date-friendly” food, such as small plates, salads, and sandwiches. Not date-friendly food? Pasta, burgers, and chicken wings, apparently.
“No spaghetti—nothing that would be awkward on a first date,” Ellis Roche, Bumble chief of staff, told Bloomberg.
But the spot isn’t only for romantic meetups. The company also plans to utilize the space for its networking platform, Bumble Bizz.
Bumble opened its first food and drink popup in 2017. Hive, also in Manhattan, proved so successful, lines were out the door. The company launched a second location in Los Angeles.
“Our users want experiences; we know that from our data,” Roche said. New York is Bumble’s most active market. The app has more than 60 million users in 150 countries.
Isn’t data romantic?
