Barware Fit For A Mad Men Scene...

4 comments


If you’re as famished for the next episode of Mad Men as we are, you’re probably looking in all the usual places for a retro fix to hold yourself over until season four debuts—reruns, vintage stores, speakeasies. (For those of you who have not had the pleasure of indulging yourself in this award-winning AMC drama, here’s the gist: The swirling drama surrounding early 1960s gender roles, politics and the rise of commercialism all set in the boozy boys club of the New York Advertising world.) In a word: Barware.

Mix yourself a stiff Manhattan with these heavy, glass picks:

Wellington Spirits Decanter With No Drip Mouth

A beveled, architectural decanter fit for your single-malt scotch. Handsome (and substantial) enough to earn a spot on your mahogany bar-top.

Glass Animal Ice Bucket

Just the right size to keep your ice at-the-ready—with enough retro, Americana charm to keep up with your leather club-chair.


Arte Italica Milano Old Fashioned Glasses

The thick, wide-rimmed pewter bottoms on these tumblers were meant for leaving water stains. The kind that imply the host was too rapt in conversation with you to notice you missed the coaster. All the more evidence of your excellent company.
