Ensconced in the heart of downtown Macon, The Hummingbird Stage & Taproom hosts an array of musical acts on its stage and a wide selection of imbibables at its bar. Exposed brick walls, a bourbon-dark wooden bar, and ample mingling space offer groups of all sizes an atmosphere to chat, drink, and stage Elizabethan-era masques. Past acts include locals Big Mike and the Booty Papas, regional favorites American Aquarium, and national sensations such as Bottle Rockets and Drivin’ N Cryin’. A jam-packed music schedule keeps twanging guitar strings and thumping kick drums reverberating throughout the bar, helping to jar loose small objects lost in patrons’ ears and nostrils.
- Every inch of the downtown Macon bar permeates old time saloon, from the wooden stage to the dim, natural lighting that peaks [sic] in from outside. – Brenda Visneski, Examiner.com
- They bring in bands from all over and highlight some cool djs. The staff and owners are all excellent and know what they are doing. – britton T., Yelp, 7/20/09
