The nautical themed HMS Bounty is located on the ground floor of the historic Gaylord Apartments, which opened in 1924 across the street from the Ambassador Hotel. The Bounty originally opened as the Gay Room in 1948. It was later known as the Secret Harbor and then the Golden Anchor before it became the HMS Bounty in 1962. Start with the $5 Wise Man special (a shot of whiskey and a Tecate) and pick some tunes on the vinyl jukebox. The baseball steak is a popular order, or go on a Sunday for their $4.95 lunch specials. And if you’re lucky enough to get introduced to Annie, it’s guaranteed the legendary bartender will remember your name whether you stop in the following week or a year later.Mad Men fans will recognize the Bounty from the Season One episode “Indian Summer,” when Peggy goes on a blind date with a truck driver at La Trombetta, a fictional Manhattan seafood restaurant.
