There’s no shortage of dating spots in NYC. When the time comes to meet up with your Bumble date, you need a safe and comfortable place to go like a BumbleSpot. BumbleSpots are fun and interactive spaces recommended by Bumble, the female-focused dating app, to meet your matches and get to know them better. BumbleSpots are now launching throughout the city, and we’re so excited about it.
The first launch was their personal spot called The Hive. Designed to look like a beehive, The Hive served coffee and other drinks in an intimate setting for people who met on the app. As a test run, Bumble opened the spot to determine how well other BumbleSpots would perform. Needless to say, they’re doing very well.
The first official BumbleSpot partnership in NYC is with Moxy Hotels. You’ll be able to identify the Spot by the yellow decal posted on the door. BumbleSpots are open to everyone; however, you’ll need the app to gain certain benefits like food and beverage perks. Even if you aren’t currently dating, you can use Bumble to meet friends or to network. It’s the perfect app for all your social needs.
While BumbleSpots are still launching, there are other great dating spots available in NYC. They’re not yet Bumble-verified, but here are some of our top picks for potential BumbleSpots.
Do you love pizza and cocktails? Then The Woodstock is the place to go. This spot is fun and affordable. Have some fun by playing pool or just relax on the couch and enjoy each other’s conversation. The setting will make you feel like you’re at home. The Woodstock should definitely be Bumble-verified.
Fig 19 is for the art and vintage lovers. Before you enter the bar, you have to go through an art gallery. This spot is more for couples meeting up rather than friends or networking pals. It portrays a more intimate setting. You’ll get to enjoy cocktails while looking at some of the most exquisite pieces of art.
Head over to Brooklyn for some real fun. Darby Bar is great for meet-ups because it allows you to hand in a more casual setting. The drinks aren’t too expensive and they have a shuffleboard table to help break the ice. Don’t forget to visit the photo booth to remember this amazing spot.
ROKC is one of Harlem’s best spots. You’ll enjoy ramen and cocktails before heading for some fun on the ice. The Riverbank State Park is only a 10-minute walk from ROKC. Bust your ass while ice skating for the real icebreaker.
Bumble is all about meeting up at a nice hotel. No, not for a quick hook-up. Hotels provide the perfect setting for meeting someone new. They have great happy hours and cozy seating. And, if the date is going horribly, you can easily sneak out. Hotel Demano has fantastic cocktails and small bites. Get there early for a good seat.
Keep an eye out for new BumbleSpots. You can find out current events on their website and even subscribe to get the latest launch dates.
