Dumbo Social City Guide

You might recognize it from the now-classic blogger shot standing before the cobblestone streets intersecting the Brooklyn Bridge, but there’s more to DUMBO (short for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) than a single great view. Check out these blogger-approved picks for our first hyper-local guide on where to eat, drink and, of course, snag the perfect Instagram shot.


One Girl Cookies

 “This place is an Instagram blogger’s dream, everything is super photogenic and really cute. More importantly, the cookies, the coffee– everything is amazing here. My favorite is the pumpkin whoopie pie— you have to try it!”

Juliana’s Pizza

“Straight up #BrooklynStyle.”

Vinegar Hill House

“This colorful leafy babe was from @vinegarhillhouse — Tuscan kale, carrot ribbons and the BEST buttermilk dressing.”

Cecconi’s Dumbo

One of our favorites right from the start, this is the go-to neighborhood spot for outdoor dining.

Gran Electrica

“Simple, excellent Mexican food without any gimmicks.”

Because you need and deserve a rooftop set-up like this one.

West Elm DUMBO

The furniture retailer’s 100th store is a shining beacon of everything post-warehouse DUMBO could be.

The Wing DUMBO

The all-female co-working and social space debuted its (arguably) most impressive location yet in this duplex loft overlooking the river.
