About The Hummingbird

frontdoorIt all began on June 21, 2005, when The Hummingbird Stage and Taproom opened its doors. Since then, we have provided the Middle Georgia area with the finest in national, regional, and local live music, and the coolest place to drink and mingle with friends.

The ‘Bird has consistently been voted the people’s choice as Best Overall Bar, Best Place To Hear Live Music, and Best Bar Staff, among other awards – and for good reason! Spend an evening with us at The ‘Bird, shoot some darts, engage in a friendly cornhole rivalry, and listen to the finest music around – we promise you’ll want to come back again!
