Mad Men in Manhattan – touring New York with Mad Men in mind

After seven successful series, 21 May sees the last-ever episode of Mad Men on UK TV (sob). The series finale (which aired on 17 May in the US) promises to be both witty and absorbing, though will likely leave viewers suffering with unbearable postMad Men blues.

Not sure what to do now the show has finally ended? Well, it has been eight years and 92 episodes after all. Celebrate the end of an era with a martini or manhattan cocktail or two – as Don Draper would have doneand then make your way to New York City to discover the hotspots frequented by the Sterling Cooper crowd with Apple Core Hotels’ Mad Men Map of Manhattan.

Why not see the subterranean Grand Central Oyster Bar, where Don Draper and Roger Sterling shared a few too many lunchtime martinis? Or dance the night away at P.J. Clarke’s, the famous watering hole where Peggy did the twist to celebrate her first copywriting assignment? You could also dine in style at Benihana, the Japanese Steakhouse restaurant which Don frequents to win a prestigious Japanese client.

Of course, a visit to New York wouldn’t be complete without a stroll along the infamous home of advertising, Madison Avenue, where the headquarters of Bert Cooper and Roger Sterling’s agency was located for the first three seasons.

Stay a short stroll from the show’s favourite haunts at Midtown Manhattan’s nyma, the new york manhattan hotel, The Hotel @ Times Square or broadway @ times square hotel, where a one-night stay costs from $195/ approx. £125 per room per night (two sharing) including a copy of the Mad Men Map of Manhattan. Excellent free-of-charge amenities include WiFi, continental breakfast (think fresh bagels, jams, cereal and yoghurt), calls nationwide, 24-hour business centres, fitness centres and in-room coffee makers. Flights extra – from £515 pp with Skyscanner.

Rooftop bars with sweeping city views have recently opened at nyma, the new york manhattan hotel (Cloud Social) and The Hotel @ Times Square (VU46).

The final episode of Mad Men airs in the UK on 21 May (Sky Atlantic).
