(page 70 of 170)
CRITICS, UPSTATE | Hummingbird to Mars
1616 Delaware Ave., Wilmington, 468-6832
A floor above other Trolley Square hotspots is Hummingbird to Mars, a posh, speakeasy-style bar where well-dressed, well-behaved young professionals lounge on Victorian furniture while listening to jazz and sipping cocktails named after Clark Gable and Jean Harlow. They’re made with unique ingredients such as elderflower liqueur, lemon-vanilla foam, absinthe and mango purée, courtesy of mixologists Lo Skarda and Chris Resler. If the antique lantern outside the door is lit, they’re pouring.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Fire and Ice Lounge
1131 N. Dupont Hwy., Dover, 674-4600
Eye-popping visuals at Fire and Ice Lounge inside Dover Downs Hotel & Casino are as cool as the drinks. There’s the color-changing bar, a gigantic glacier centerpiece that shifts between fiery red and icy blue. Bacardi mojitos and a VIP lounge with plush couches and bottle service keep people coming back. So does the entertainment. Visit August 6-7 for the Elvis Festival.
