MAD MEN Season Premiere

martiniimagetop

Set in our very own city,  Mad Men has become a favorite amongst some of us at The Roosevelt Hotel.  Don Draper even filmed a scene here not to long ago!

So we thought, why not throw a little party in honor of its season premiere this Sunday (August 16th) at The Madison Club Lounge!

“SUITS AND SKIRTS PARTY”
Have fun with it and dress in your snappiest 1960’s garb, order a Sloe Gin Fizz and watch the premiere (that we’ve ALL been waiting for) of MADMEN this SUNDAY, AUGUST 16th at The Madison Club Lounge.

From 9:30-11:30pm, taste cocktails from the era provided by Dewars and enjoy drink specials from the bar all night.
