Home Base Delaware steps up to plate in ‘Hidden Gems’ series


Welcome back to Hidden Gems of Greater Wilmington, a biweekly feature showcasing offbeat and low-profile spots in Wilmington’s downtown area and surrounding communities. This is the place to find lesser-known places that make Delaware special to locals. 

Our second Hidden Gems story highlighted Pure Flavor Lounge, a Black-owned business on Wilmington’s Riverfront, located at 960 Justison St.

This week’s gem is Home Base Delaware, a sports bar in Northern Wilmington, located near Concord Mall at 4723 Concord Pike.

So, what makes it a gem?

Home Base Delaware helps you support all of your favorite sports teams with its 30-plus TVs, live music and daily specials.

The bar, which opened in September 2022, stays open until 1 a.m. every day and broadcasts all of the NFL games on Sundays through NFL Sunday Ticket — a premium video service that lets football fans watch all of the “out-of-market” NFL football games. In addition, enjoy live music at Home Base Delaware every week, between Thursday through Sunday.

The sports bar also has several drink and food specials every day, which include $1 wings on NFL game days, $5 House Margaritas on Tuesdays, and $4 Miller Lite drafts and bottles on Thursdays. The bar’s crowd typically includes all age groups over the age of 21.

With the holidays coming up, you may also want to rent the space for a special gathering. On the bar’s website, you can contact their events team for an inquiry at sergezb@gmail.com.
