Madison Beach Hotel embraces its beachfront location even at the bar, incorporating relevant ingredients like light rum and fruity cocktail drinks into the menu. But don't think Madison Beach is only a summer destination. The cocktail list is a living thing, changing seasonally with pumpkin and apple for fall and hot toddies for winter. And there is large list of dark beers, bourbons and scotches for those looking to keep it dark. Madison Beach Hotel is at 94 Wharf Road. Information: 203-245-1404 and madisonbeachhotel.com.
