If you’ve been dying for a place to soak up needed #girlboss energy, get excited. Super-popular women-only social club The Wing is expanding to three new locations: Soho, Downtown Brooklyn, and Washington, D.C. Its flagship location, in New York City’s Flatiron district, currently has 650 members and a 3,000-woman waiting list — so this news is sure to make a lot of people happy.
The Wing, co-founded by former publicist Audrey Gelman, is inspired by the women-run social clubs of the 19th century that provided a space for women’s education, entrepreneurship, and relationship-building. The Wing offers much of the same, with space to work, eat, drink (all wine and cocktails are made by women!), pump breast milk, shower, and primp, along with a library stocked with books by women and all the millennial pink furniture and decor your heart desires.
Sounds like paradise, right?
Honestly, it kind of us. Just look at this place.
The new locations will begin opening in the fall, starting with Soho. Then the D.C. location will throw open its doors in the winter, and the Brooklyn hub in early 2018. The flagship location is sizable, at 3,500 square feet, but the new locations will be more than three times that size — meaning three times as many members will be able to join.
“We quickly realized we did not have enough square footage to keep up with the interest and enthusiasm around The Wing,” Gelman said in an interview with The Cut. “So we got to work really quickly to expand our physical footprint in terms of new locations in new cities. We’ll also be offering new membership tiers that will allow more women to access The Wing and be a part of it.”
