Attraction details
Owner description: Join us on the Mad Men Cocktails Experience Tour. Spend a night in New York City like Don or Peggy would have. Dress in your best 60's attire, complete with a skinny tie or red dress. We will walk the same streets featured on Mad Men and best of all we will drink where they drank. We will be stopping at 3 bars featured on the show and whether you prefer drinking a Manhattan or Tom Collins, we will pick up the tab. By nights end you will have learned about the ad industry of the 1960's, experienced a full tour of Madison Avenue and lived like a Mad Man or Woman in some of New York's most legendary watering holes. You will never forget this night because everyone will get a package of vintage pictures of them and their dates enjoying the night.

We had an excellent time on the Mad Men cocktail tour. Josh showed us some great spots (to which we returned on other days, more than once). Our group of 5 included a couple of New Yorkers, a Brit and us Canadians. We learned a lot about the city, the history of Madison Avenue, and Mad Men trivia, without feeling like we were on a tour. It was more like just having drinks with new friends. Since the cost of the drinks (and, lucky us, some oysters) was included, the cost of the tour actually seemed pretty reasonable. We are looking forward to seeing the photos, hopefully soon!

This was the more sober tour during the day that we carried out on our honeymoon. Our guide Dante took us through some of the best hotels in the city and showed us a lot more. Clips from the show were shown throughout and the trip to Grand Central Station really brought it alive. Thanks Ryan and Penny

This walking tour took us to four bars that were part of the scenes created for Mad Men. At each bar our host Josh, showed us the scene from Mad Men. Each location was very interesting and this tour is one that many Mad Men followers will enjoy. I was a little pricey, but half the cost went to drinks at each location. It was also a great way to see some of New York that you might never see. I recommend the tour and Josh was a great host, all decked out in his black suit, glasses and skinny tie! We saw places you probably wouldn't ever see unless you were a local in New York.

We received tickets to this tour as a Christmas gift from my in-laws. We were so excited! We got all dressed up, and met the small group at Grand Central. We became fast friends with the other couple on the tour, as well as our fabulous Don Draper-esque tour guide. As a huge fan of Mad Men, it was so fun to see the locations from the show. Josh, our very knowledgeable guide, even had his IPad to show us the scenes. He knew a lot of behind the scenes info, and knew a lot of the show and characters. It. Was. FUN! Drinks were amazing, and the walk in the city was really cool. Next time we go to NYC, we are going to try another one of their side walk tours. Was truly a memorable, fantastic evening. Would do it over again in a heartbeat. I definitely recommend this tour.

My girlfriend and I visited on the 29th Nov and we had a fantastic tour. Josh was a brilliant host, he knew loads about Mad Men and was also really good with info on NYC. The places we visited were lovely and if we hadn't gone on the tour we would certainly have missed some of those great bars. We would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone visiting NYC even if your not the biggest Mad Men fan as it's still a great night out.
