After seven seasons, four Golden Globes and 15 Emmys, Mad Men enthusiasts will have to say goodbye to Don Draper and company. On Sunday, May 17, the show is coming to an end with the series finale airing on AMC at 9pm. If you want to watch the finale in style, head to one of these bars, where they'll have themed parties and 60's-era drink specials. 

The Library Bar You'll surely see fans dressed up as they watch the finale with themed cocktails and appetizers. Prior to the showing, there will be themed music and trivia contests with prizes including a staycation at the Public Hotel and dinners at the Pump Room. The event kicks off at 7pm.

Fat Cat Fat Cat will be serving baked Alaska, pupu platters and 60's-era drinks like Old Fashioneds, Moscow Mules and martinis. Head to the back room, which has 12 TVs.

Blue Line Lounge This bar is no secret to Mad Men fans, considering they've aired it every week. But for the season finale they'll have four, $8 character-inspired cocktails. If you can't make the first screening, they'll be showing the encore at 10pm too.

Estelle's For the series finale, they'll be serving up $7 Old Fashioneds, Manhattans and Aviations. Seating is first come first serve.

If you're hosting your own party, Cakegirls is selling chocolate-covered breadsticks fashioned to look like cigarettes. They also have a complete how-to tutorial with other Mad Men-based treats like necktie cookies and DIY retro Jell-O telephones.
