Cocktail Bar

A stylish yet approachable cocktail bar located in the heart of New Buffalo, MI. Set in an old Victorian House, surrounded by a lush garden of colorful flowers and festive greenery, Hummingbird Lounge is the perfect spot to dip in for a proper cocktail and tasty, sharable plates.

You must try the Smoked Pineapple Margarita, which beautifully balances sweet, smoke, citrus, and spice to compliment the flavors of Tres Agaves aged, organic Tequila. Other standouts include A Real Dandy Old Fashioned, prepared with Diplomatico Exclusiva Rum and the Blueberry Bramble, a patio pleaser made with Organic Vodka, a blueberry & pineapple shrub, topped with fresh mint.

The Menu showcases locally sourced produce, sustainably raised proteins, and simply delicious shareables. Expect a solid selection of favorites (Smoked Whitefish Dip, House Fries) complimented by daily specials fresh from our favorite local farms.

For a small menu it should have had more wow this is fantastic!! Tortillas were hard and chewy the bread served with white fish dip looked like it had been torched not toasted. Had a burnt taste.

Odd configuration in the house that makes it feel like you’re alone, which was not the vibe we were going for that night. The outside looked great! It was too cold to be out there, sadly. 2 out of the 3 drinks we ordered were not really drinkable, the proportions were off. Think that the one part became the two part and vocal versa. I would recommend sticking with a beer or something else on tap.

On top of it, they didn't even have the place set up for us so clearly that was a Plan B (no chairs, no table settings, etc.) We were told the owner had friends who took the two tables they usually put together for a group of our size...but again, we had a reservation and somehow lost our table?...seems unfair. Also, sitting upstairs made it harder for the servers to adjust to issues like a missing drink, mixed up orders, etc. To be sure, the team did their absolute level best to make it as positive of an experience as possible- HUGE kudos to all of them! - but as I was hosting friends new to the area, it was not what was planned or expected. Just a fair warning that the upstairs is not really anywhere as nice as the rest of the place. We will return, but only as a 2 or 4 person group as I am worried the same may happen.

Would have liked a little more honey/siracha mayo on the chicken tacos for additional flavor, really only had the flavor profile of the slaw. Chicken breast was nice and moist, if a tad bit salty. We would return.

One can order a few dishes that perfectly pair with drinks or one can order several dishes and make a meal out of their fare. Patrons have several seating choices: the bar, the fireplace room, one of the upstairs private rooms, the covered deck, the Court yard, the lower level annex building or the upper level. Private event spaces for different size groups are also unique. Cheerful, friendly staff add to the total experience. Definitely get a few orders of the tacos, and the seasonal corn dip. The top notch cocktails, food, service and atmosphere combine to make this a great experience.
