Now in its third season, the critically acclaimed television show Mad Men has inspired a surge of tourism in New York City. Here are the spots to live out your 1960s fantasies.

The Palm Court at the PlazaHotel

2 of 11

On the Show: Betty (clad in a new fur coat) and Don celebrate Valentine’s Day in a palm-filled hotel dining room at the (now defunct) Savoy Hotel. After running into Betty’s old college friend turned “working girl,” the Drapers retire to a romantic evening in one of the hotel’s lavish suites. (Season 2)

In Reality: An ideal stand-in, the luminous dining room at the palace-like (and newly renovated) Plaza Hotel is where Eloises-in-the-making take afternoon tea and couples dine for special occasions.

Best If You’re: Using money to mend marital woes. It wouldn’t hurt to walk down the street to Saks Fifth Avenue for a mink for the missus.
