Mad Men Dining Week 2015

March 23rd – 29th at The Roosevelt Hotel
This April marks the final season of AMC’s acclaimed television series, Mad Men, and we at the Roosevelt know how to end an era in style. From March 23rd-29th we’re partnering with NYC & Company to provide prix-fixe menus at both the Madison Club and Vander Bar, each just $19.69.

Start your trip through time with a shrimp cocktail and horseradish dipping sauce at the Madison Club followed by the main course, beef wellington finished with chasseur sauce. Then raise a glass at Vander Bar with two new classic cocktails, the Madhatten and the Dapper Fashion, both featuring Maker’s Mark. The only things we don’t provide is your suit and a cigar.

90 Years of Hospitality

As of September 22nd, 2014 The Roosevelt Hotel has been in operation for 90 Years!

There’s a lot in a name. Names hold power, tradition, history, and meaning. A name is something passed down from generation to generation, telling us where we came from and who we are. We at the Roosevelt are proud of who we are, as well as our namesake. That’s why for our 90th anniversary we invite guests with the last name Roosevelt to book one night for $90 here at our hotel through March 31st, 2015.

1924 & 2010

Since opening in 1924 the “Grand Dame of Madison Avenue” has seen a lot. Through the years our 1,015 renovated rooms have housed many historical figures. Guy Lambardo first began broadcasting “Auld Lang Syne” from our Roosevelt Grill, Governor Thomas Dewey erroneously announced his victory over Harry S. Truman from our halls, and private guests entered into our midst by way of a secret underground passage connecting the hotel with Grand Central Station. The Roosevelt has also been featured in many Hollywood productions like “Mad Men,” “Man on a Ledge,” “Men in Black 3,” and “Maid in Manhattan.”

Man and Woman Enjoying a Dance

Whether they dine at our 19th floor rooftop bar or in the street side-restaurant, or simply take in the neo-classical architecture of the lobby, the Roosevelt offers everything our guests’ desire. No matter the occasion, the Roosevelt has served at the forefront of the New York hospitality for the last 90 years, and we plan to continue for the next 90 and beyond.

Tips From The Tonys

Classic cocktails from our bartenders at Madison Club Lounge.

You don’t mess with a classic, unless of course you can improve it, and our bartenders know how to add a new twist to an Old Fashioned.

Tony&TonyDomaine de Canton is a ginger liqueur made in the French Aquataine region. Its unique flavor derives from freshly picked baby ginger, peeled and cut by hand in order to ensure a rich ginger experience. This liqueur is only prepared in small handmade batches so mass quantities are not possible.  First made popular by the French in the colonial Indochine region, Domaine de Canton captures the subtle spiciness indicative of the region’s ginger.
