Beefcake is not on the menu at the new restaurant in the Bumble dating app.
What was billed as an all-day cafe, which turns into an intimate restaurant and wine bar at night, was due to open in New York on Saturday.
Today Bumble said Fast business that the opening was delayed. No new date has been given.
âAs is often the case with most new restaurant openings, we had to sort out a few unexpected building items that we are finalizing before opening in the next few days,â Bumble explains in an email.
The 3,760 square foot Bumble Brew is located in the Nolita neighborhood of Manhattan and features an 80 seat dining room, cocktail bar, patio and private dining area, designed by FLOAT Design Studio. The site will be used for events and the music performed will be âa predominantly female collection of all genresâ.
The food is Italian-inspired: homemade pasta, vegetables, plates to share. Initially, Bumble Brew, a collaboration between popular dating apps company Whitney Wolfe Herd and Pasquale Jones of Delicious Hospitality Group, will be open for breakfast from 8 a.m. to noon, Wednesday through Sunday. According to the original plan announced on June 30, the restaurant will later serve lunch and after that add a dinner quarter. (July 31 and August 7 were the dates given at the time.)
People who are not in the mood for socializing or going out can order pickup and delivery via Caviar.
Although Bumble has made a name for itself – and its bank – by allowing women to make first contact in dating, the restaurant is open to everyone: men, women, singles, committed and everyone in between.
There are undoubtedly nuances of dating. âThe right people are all around you. Get to know them around delicious food and wine, âsays the restaurant’s website.
The idea for Bumble Brew comes from the success of the Bumble Hive pop-up spaces. The first in New York’s Soho neighborhood opened in 2017, followed by other cities including Los Angeles, Austin and London.
âAt Bumble, we’re driven by bringing people together to make real connections, both on and off the app,â said Julia Smith, Head of Brand Partnerships at Bumble, in a written statement. last month. âWe’ve seen a resounding response to the Bumble Hive pop-ups we’ve hosted around the world and noticed a clear appetite for a permanent space where people can connect. . . We hope people can get together at Bumble Brew and connect over an espresso or a delicious meal, whether it’s with friends, a potential partner or a new business relationship.
Bumble went public in February.
