5th & MAD, a mainstay for partygoers and brunch-lovers alike, has recently undergone a serious makeover and is now ready to show off its new face – or should we say faces. Located just steps away from the Empire State Building, 5th & MAD is a bi-level, funky American restaurant, ‘20s-inspired speakeasy bar, and banging events space – all wrapped in one.
It may look small from the front – but this Manhattan hotspot can fit up to 600 guests!
The extensive renovations have birthed three unique, new spaces, kicking off with an eclectic restaurant – ‘The Insider’. Located on the lower level of the venue, the art-deco atmosphere of the dedicated dining area features fabulously floral patterns, heaps of vibrant colour, luxury wood-grain seating, and edgy street-art décor inspired by the streets of NYC.
Hot off the plate is a brand-new, carefully curated menu courtesy of Head Chef Arellano Cruz. Think simple, fun dishes, bursting with seasonal flavors, that are great to share, while using great fresh local ingredients – available all week for lunch and dinner, and brunch on the weekends. The menu boasts summer-inspired, healthy dishes including Buffalo cauliflower and ‘Burger and Greens’ – so guests can enjoy good food, whilst watching their waistlines.
The swanky new upper-level space – dubbed ‘The Lobby Room’ – offers up hushed, low-key 1920s speakeasy vibes that pair oh-so-well with a drink (or two!). The uber-clandestine bar serves up an extensive menu of punchy spirits and specially curated cocktails, with a strong focus on everyone’s favourite Summer spirit – Gin. We’d recommend the Netflix and Pillow Talk.
Back on the main level is another, 40ft long bar, which stocks nearly every drop of alcohol possible. Beer, wine and spirits, to a range of expertly-crafted cocktails.
Happy Hour drink specials run daily throughout the week, as do daily promotions – like Pre-Fix Mondays, Taco & Tostadas Tuesdays and Burgers & Bourdons Wednesdays.
With all the gorgeous space at hand comes the ability to host some serious events. Whether you’re looking to celebrate with a private party, family gathering, or corporate happy hour, 5th & MAD can accommodate with their 7 exclusive spaces – ranging from 10 to 600 guests in capacity.
5th & MAD will be hosting an array of their own fun events this Summer – think Tropical Brunches and Drag Brunches!
