The Roosevelt Hotel
45 E. 45th St., 212-661-9600
At the corner of Madison Avenue and East 45th Street—the central stomping grounds for real-life Don Drapers of yore—step into The Roosevelt Hotel, the site of Sal Romano's clandestine date with a Belle Jolie representative and Don's temporary bachelor pad after Betty, his wife, kicked him out of the house in season two. Pass through the sumptuous lobby of this classic New York hotel on the way to the Madison Club Lounge, whose mahogany walls, stained-glass windows and leather chairs look as if they were fashioned by a Mad Men set designer. After quaffing a scotch or two, head up to Mad46—The Roosevelt's sleek rooftop lounge—to get your fill of contemporary New York cool while gazing out over the cityscape from 19 floors up.
