Chances are, if you're single in NYC, you've spent some time on Bumble.

We're not sure exactly why, but of the countless dating apps out there, Bumble has always seemed a little less sketch than its competition– like Tinder, although that bar isn't very high.

The dating app, which hands the reigns of online dating to women, is now expanding to a brick-and-mortar space.

According to TimeOut NY, Bumble founder Whitney Wolfe invented this physical space in order for users to feel comfortable when finally meeting up with their online "partner."

Not in the mood to meet potential girlfriends or boyfriend? No worries, Bumble lounge space is also used to network and connect with others professionally.

As if New York doesn't have enough places for this! But we must admit, it definitely sounds better than trying to talk over drunken college students.

The Hive is the name of the new lounge space (obviously), and its located in Soho. While New Yorkers are mingling and networking they have the option of getting either liquor from the bar, or coffee from the coffee shop, which are both located within the lounge area.


Hosting events with discussions about topics such as relationships and women's empowerment, The Hive also gives you and your date an opportunity to talk about something other than your 9-5. Or your siblings. Or what you majored in during college. 

Mix it up, people.


Sounds like the perfect place to meet up with your date, right? Sadly, The Hive is only open for a month, from now until June 25th, so you should check it out while you can.
