5th & MAD
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
The bi-level Midtown gastropub takes its cues from Mad Men—of four distinct areas of the behemoth bar, one is a dedicated Draper Room upstairs, fitted with suited mannequins and low-backed armchairs. Beyond that Don-worthy room, there’s a Girls’ Lounge decked out with upholstered chartreuse seats, sprawling oriental rugs and curio cabinets filled with hat boxes and gloves to emulate midcentury-era department stores. Another room is sectioned off with lime-green cabinetry and features pool tables and whimsical Penguin Publishing posters. In the ground-floor common area, a 45-foot black-wood bar offers cocktails by barkeep Justin Andrews, including the A.B.C. Always Be Closing (Bulleit bourbon, prosecco, triple sec) and a vodka-based Get MAD with lime juice and ginger beer. Slide into curved banquettes near the bar for snacks from chef Chase Sanders (Ruschmeyer’s, Nobo Wine & Grill), including beer-braised short-rib sliders on truffle brioche.
