That Bumble Wine Bar isn’t Coming to Prince Street, After All
Turns out Bumble won’t be opening a coffee-wine bar in Little Italy, after all.
A landlord representative from 47 Prince Street disputed our story this week, and noted that Bumble is apparently no longer poised to open its 70-seat Brew concept. Even though the popular dating app previously signed the lease on the space, and Community Board 2 (begrudgingly) lent its support for the beer-wine license.
As reported, Bumble Brew was conceived last summer as a corporate collaboration with Delicious Hospitality (Charlie Bird, Pasquale Jones). The goal was to create a multipurpose space conducive to dating – coffee shop by day and wine bar by night.
