Party Like Don Draper at 'Mad Men' Season Premiere
MANHATTAN — "Mad Men" is back after a year-and-a-half hiatus — and one Midtown club is ringing in its return with enough fancy cocktails, cigar- and cigarette-chomping revellers and skinny ties to make Don Draper feel right at home.
The Carnegie Club cigar lounge at 156 W. 56th St. will mark the two-hour premiere of the AMC hit's fifth season on Sunday, March 25, with a viewing party where guests can take a trip back to the 1960s-era Manhattan, when philandering ad executives like Draper — played by Jon Hamm — reigned supreme.
The critical and fan favorite also stars Elisabeth Moss, who plays scrappy ad writer Peggy Olson, and Christina Hendricks, who plays buxom secretary Joan Holloway.
The screening party will be one of the few places in the city where customers can still light up indoors — though 60s attire is optional.
The lounge will also offer customers their own 'Mad Men'-themed cocktail, the Don Draper, a traditional gin-and-vermouth martini with a splash of pineapple.
'Mad Men' premieres at 9 p.m. on AMC.
