Time to break out the suits and pearls: Modern Manor (home of mid-century and modern decor in Phoenix’s Melrose District) is hosting a Mad Men party. You’re invited—provided you have an appetite for vintage.

Modern Manor promises cocktails, appetizers, photo booths and prizes, in addition to a larger show of the store’s unique line, including furniture by Charles and Ray EamesPaul McCobb and Milo Baughman.

Co-owners Ryan and Kylie Durkin and Jeremy Briddell—all three have given us tours of their personal spaces—and if their homes say anything about their store, then friends, we’re in for a treat … or at least a cocktail.

The Durkin/Briddell team will open the huge, garage-style doors on October 23 from 7 to 11 p.m. Modern, 1960s attire is not required, but encouraged — can you imagine how much better you’ll look atop that that Eames chair watching Mad Men episodes on the large screen?

Modern Mannor is located at 716 West Hazelwood Street in Phoenix.(If you get lost, just look for the Ms). More info can be found on the Modern Manor website.
