Welcome to Hummingbird to Mars

In 1930, Texas senator Morris Sheppard famously said, “There is as much chance of repealing the eighteenth amendment as there is for a hummingbird to fly to the planet Mars with the Washington Monument tied to its tail.”

Delaware’s Best Kept Secret…

Elegant handcrafted cocktails, fine wine, old school beers & nightly entertainment bring this speakeasy establishment to life.

Why Hummingbird to Mars?

In 1919, the Volstead Act brought an end to the manufacture, sale, and transportation of alcoholic beverages. Liquor consumption dropped and the price for illegal alcohol rose, but that did not stop those who wanted to keep drinking. Speakeasy clubs became prominent and the demand for alcohol outweighed the demand for sobriety during that time. The best nights to celebrate some of life’s simplest pleasures were in these speakeasy establishments, and that is why we brought C.R. Hummingbird to Mars to Trolley Square. Located above Catherine Rooney’s Irish Pub. Find the black door with the gold hummingbird & ring the bell for entrance.
