L.A. Plays New York: "Mad Men," Episode 10: Don Draper Goes Car Shopping
When Don Draper took Joan to the Jaguar car dealership in New York (episode 10, which aired May 20)... it's really the old Farmers & Merchants Bank on Main St. in downtown Los Angeles -- across from the San Fernando Building in the heart of the Old Bank District.
The F&M bank is a popular spot for film shoots and parties (check it out in this Chevy Malibu ad here). In the "Mad Men" episode, it's a Jaguar showroom that Don takes Joan to in order to test drive a car (and take her mind off her divorce).
Here's how the inside of the old bank looks via jericl cat on Flickr:
