A Guide To Mad Men Filming Locations In Los Angeles - Curbed Maps - Curbed LA

The best response to East Coasters who think Los Angeles is ugly is this: "Mad Men." The show might take place in sexy mid-century New York, but it's shot almost entirely in sexy present day Los Angeles (it won an award from the LA Conservancy for the attention it pays to our mid-centuriana). To celebrate the show's return to the air this past weekend, we've rounded up some of Mad Men's many LA filming locations and present them to you now in this handy map format. (As an addendum, check out Eater New York's guide to the bars and restaurants of Mad Men--several of which are played by Los Angeles eateries.)
