Bar Pastoral's ambiance is a warm extension of Pastoral’s signature retail look and feel, channeling memories of trips to the most inviting culinary destinations on earth, like Sonoma, Provence or Tuscany, without being overtly specific to any of them. Combining authentic pastoral materials with exposed brick, soothing tones and room-defining rustic antiques, we endeavor to provide an intimate refuge in the middle of a bustling metropolis.
