The Wing takes flight to new locations

The brainchild of former publicist Audrey Gelman is spreading its wings and flying from its Flatiron District next.

According to The Cut, women’s social club The Wing will be adding three new location in addition to its flagship, expanding their reach to Soho, Downtown Brooklyn and Washington, D.C. First to open will be the Soho location this fall, be followed by D.C. in winter 2017 winter and Brooklyn first thing in 2018, reports The Cut.

With an over 3,000-person long wait list for membership to The Wing, The Cut says that each forthcoming location will be “roughly three times as large as The Wing’s flagship location, and will therefore be able to accommodate roughly three times as many members,” which is 3,500 square feet and accommodates only 650 members.

If The Wing sounds like something you’ve been missing, The Cut says applications for membership are now being accepted for the new locations, though membership costs a lofty $2,250 per year.

Though the club is rather elite, fear not. The Cut says Gelman shared that The Wing chooses members in such a way that ensures diversity: by reviewing “racial and cultural diversity, career diversity and diversity in the utilization of the space.”
