Looking for an unpretentious place with moderately cheap (and generously poured) drinks and plenty of character? Or do you just need a watering hole where you can while away the afternoon listening to the jukebox as it competes with the sounds of commuters on their way home from work? In either event, the Rustic is the best old-school bar in Madison, where you can become part of the gang or a party unto yourself.
Thank you Gina and Madison Magazine for this honor!
