Though the loved AMC series ‘Mad Men’ aired its final episode in 2015, the opening of the new Conrad Chicago Hotel (101 E. Erie) was the perfect setting to bring back Don and Betty Draper and transport guests back to the Sterling Cooper 60’s. Guests were encouraged to dress in Mad Men 196-‘s era attire and enjoy the view, libations, signature cocktails and sumptuous bites like caviar, risotto, scallops and truffled devil eggs from Baptiste & Bottle.

The soiree which offered guests the picturesque opportunity to view the city’s skyline from the 21st floor featured a live band and saxophonist, bar carts serving martinis, old fashioned and gimlets.
