The antique spirits being served were purchased directly from the props department of MAD MEN by Edgar Harden (Old Spirits Company) and used on the sets of the show. They are also all unopened vintage bottles from the 1960s. The classic cocktail menu was designed based on the most frequent drinks observed on the show. In addition to these full-size cocktails, straight pours of select spirits will also be available neat or on the rocks.
VIP TIckets include one Antique drink of your choice. Antique drinks will also be available for purchase at the event, or in advance. We encourage guests to pre-order antique drinks while purchasing tickets as there are limited quantities of these rare and fine spirits. Our guest bartenders are from some of the finest cocktails bars in the country, and will be preparing each drink to your specifications.
