Bumble Opens NYC Pop-Up for Users to Mingle in Real Life

Dating app’s ”The Hive“ wants to attract entrepreneurs, artists and thinkers

Bumble, the dating app, opened a pop-up location in New York this month called “The Hive,” where app users can meet and mingle in real life.

The company made the announcement on its blog earlier this week, stating that “#BumbleHiveNYC is a safe space where guests can expect complimentary entertainment, drinks and snacks, and interactive sessions with thought leaders and entrepreneurs.”

It will be open from June 1 to June 25 at 148 Mercer Street in New York. “The Hive” seeks to attract entrepreneurs, artists and thinkers from all over and establish a community for them to connect — not just single people looking to meet their one true love.

The space also has events scheduled for the month. For example, on Saturday, Bumble is offering a free brunch and cocktails in the afternoon. On Sunday, a DJ will spin your favorite tracks and guests can sip on Rose all day long.

While “The Hive” is only open this month, for now, Whitney Wolfe, Bumble’s founder and CEO told Mashable that they plan to find permanent fixtures in select cities. The company wants to create a space for “users to convene is a safe place where only positive interaction is welcome.”
