Bumble Restarts IRL Events for 2023

Bumble has released a lineup of London-based events taking place from February to March 2023. The events are free and tickets are available on the app.

Stylist shares the lineup of Bumble’s London events, including various bar nights, tarot card readings, gigs, parties, speed date meet-ups, and more. 

Bumble is no stranger to the concept of IRL experiences, with the dating app launching cafe and wine bar Bumble Brew in 2021. The physical location opened in New York City, but has since faced issues with a burst pipe, its Instagram shared.

Many dating apps are organising physical meet-ups for their users, giving them an alternative way to make connections. Feeld’s event in Austin, Thursday’s planned ski trip for 1000 singles, and OurTime’s cruise line partnership, are a few examples GDI has identified recently.

Chelsea Grayson, Interim CEO of Spark Networks, highlighted the return of IRL dating as the trend to look out for in 2023, in a recent podcast interview with GDI
