Reader question: Where to watch Mad Men in Brooklyn?

Is that a girly drink in front of Don?

Y’all had brilliant suggestions for curly haircuts, so here’s another query, from cable-less reader Andrew, for the collective Brokelyn brain trust:

Do you know if there’s any place—a bar?—in Brooklyn that has Mad Men “viewing parties,” AKA, has a TV that shows Mad Men? I don’t have cable, but I want to get into this show, which at this point appears to be the only worthwhile show on TV.  I know I can probably watch old episodes online . . . but that’s not as fun. HELP!

Any ideas for Andrew, folks? Bonus for bars with show-appropriate drink specials (an old-fashioned is very Don Draper and a vodka gimlet very Betty, according to The Times).


  1. Get a Roku box from Netflix! It hooks up to your TV. You can buy the latest MadMen for $1.99 per episode (through a partnership they have with Amazon). They have all of Season 1 and 2, too. You can also buy the full season for something like $20.

    Last week Sheep Station (4th Ave & Douglass) agreed to show it–free, of course. It went so well that the owner has agreed to reserve the back room and play it on a projector each week! Plus, they have good Don and Roger-esque drinks!

    It’s nearly 3 years after this question was posed, but hey….Anyone know of a place to catch Mad Men on Sunday the 25th? I know there are some dress-up, cocktail parties out there, but I was actually hoping for a regular bar and some beer (ok, MAYbe a martini)
