Thoreau’s is a club-like bar adjacent to twenty-eight Atlantic. Its warm ambiance is derived from leather tones, overstuffed chairs and a stone and granite fireplace. The intimate setting overlooks tranquil Pleasant Bay. Thoreau’s offers a unique menu, an extensive wine list, and a wide selection of martinis and specialty cocktails.
