Atmosphere – 28 Degrees Boston is a sharp, elegant bar/lounge located in the South End that attracts a sophisticated crowd of professionals mostly in their 30s and 40s. It has an upbeat atmosphere that’s lowly lit with a lot of open space and a really long bar. The lighting schemes at 28 Degrees Boston creates an appealing ambiance and the bathrooms are some of the nicest I have ever seen. It is a high end place and is really well-kept and clean.

My Opinion – Overall, 28 Degrees is useful if you are looking to have a nice night out with friends or a casual date with that potential/current special someone. Known by most as a restaurant, 28 Degrees Boston features a surprisingly lively bar scene, to the point where you might actually see some dancing on weekend nights. I’m actually pretty sure that the bathroom here is nicer than most upscale clubs in Boston’s main interior spaces. 28 Degrees Boston is a great place in a very nice South End neighborhood. Keep in mind that it closes at 1am.
