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.

OysterBar

3 of 11

On the Show: Sterling Cooper partner Roger Sterling calms his nerves about landing the Nixon account over a lunch of oysters and martinis. When the elevator at the Madison Avenue office is out of order, Sterling is forced to climb all 16 floors back to work—and promptly vomits at his clients’ feet. (Season 1)

In Reality: Under the main terminal near the Grand Central Dining Concourse, the beloved Oyster Bar is a sea of suits after work—and has one of the biggest and freshest selections of the briny shellfish in the city.

Best If You’re: A partner at an advertising firm with an expense account. Don’t let the diner décor fool you—the menu isn’t cheap.
