Even more important than a good drink is a great place to enjoy it. Fresco offers gorgeous views along with its seasonal cocktails and Plan B's the hotspot to dance the night away. But Madison's also a place where humble spots shine. Neighborhood taverns and dives practically guarantee you'll see some familiar faces when you walk through the door, and cozy beer bars and lively happy hours are ideal spots for escaping the cold—and likely making some new friends before the night's over.
But if you simply must have a drink at home instead, your fellow Madisonians recommend a bottle of local Spotted Cow, Hopalicious or Fantasy Factory. Cheers!
