Is there a 50's Style Night Spot in the Bay?

I have been watching the tv show MadMen lately, and was wondering if anyone knows of any bars or clubs or resturants with that really vintage atmosphere?
i have thrown a few cocktail parties with this theme, but am dying to go out on the town one night!!!

  1. I have'nt seen MadMen. What type of joint are we talking about? Neighborhood bar or dress up and dance to the big band club? Are you looking for retro-50's or places where time has passed by with vintage people in it?

        1. Not 50's or 60's per se but you might want to check out Bix for the old school, SF vibe.
          Maybe dinner at Bix then drinks at Bourbon & Branch or Rickhouse? I know, speakeasy = 30's but still think it would be a fun night out.

          1. A friend described Pican in Oakland as "The bourbon drinks are fun. Men in felt hats and women who want men in felt hats." Which decade is that?
