This super popular dating app just opened its own bar, so wait, are we back to regular dating now?
Finding a location to meet your Bumble date just got a little easier, now that the dating app is opening its very own bar.
The dating app — which boasts more than four million users, who swipe a collective 220 million times a day — is opening an IRL bar for the month of June in New York.
The pop-up bar, called The Hive, is designed for daters and friends alike to relax and unwind. In addition to serving alcohol, it also has a coffee bar. Bumble is planning several special events with sponsors like DryBar and Whispering Angel Rosé in the location as well, according to Food & Wine.
First dates are certainly nerve-racking, but the dating app is aiming to alleviate the pressure by also using the space as a place to convene the users of “Bizz”, Bumble’s non-romantic career networking service.
The Bumble team decided to have fun with the bar, by embracing the culture of online dating head on.
It even has a wall dedicated to “Dick Pics” — but don’t worry, it’s not what you think. It’s really just a series of pictures of famous people with the name Richard.
While the bar is temporary for now, Bumble said it plans to roll out the pop-up in other cities, with the potential to become a permanent space.
Real life dating? Call us crazy, but this has potential.
