NEW YORK CITY — Sunday marks the end of the AMC drama that showed us how fun it would be if day-drinking at work was still acceptable.
There is no better way to bid Don Draper farewell than with a drink — preferably rye whiskey — so here are some bars that will be screening the series finale on May 17:
Take advantage of the $1 oysters and $1 glasses of Prosecco at this stylish Greenwich Village restaurant, where their viewing party deals begin at 9 p.m. on Sunday. The Lion will also be serving a special menu for the screening.
For a lively scene, head to this Upper East Side comedy club. The party will start at 8 p.m. and will include trivia, drink specials, free giveaways and comedy. Entry is free with a two-drink minimum.
If you're looking to congregate with serious "Mad Men" fans who won't interrupt the show with chatter, then head to this British pub for a 10 p.m. screening and $3 Bud and Bud Lights.
Coffee shop by morning and watering hole by night, this neighborhood joint will host a 10 p.m. viewing along with $5 Sam Adams drafts and specialty cocktails.
A spacious, low-key lounge and beer garden that holds regular viewing parties every week will be airing the final episode at 10 p.m. on four high-definition screens.
Doors open at 8 p.m. for this viewing party, where you can enjoy wine tastings and cocktails inspired by the show. If you don some "Mad Men"-era garb, you'll automatically be entered in a raffle to win a City Winery bottle of wine. Last week's episode will air at 9 p.m. and the main event begins at 10 p.m. RSVP here and arrive early, as seating is limited.
And if you wake up Monday morning feeling empty, you can check out the "Mad Men" exhibit at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria. Or on Wednesday, May 20 at 7 p.m., head to a live talk with "Mad Men" creator, writer and director Matthew Weiner at the New York Public Library. You can buy tickets here.
