Hi there PF.
I just want to ask, whether Quantum Statistical Mechanics is a Quantum field theory. If not, is there anything else that describes entropy and thermodynamics in terms of a Quantum field theory?

It can be formulated that way, sure. See for example "Methods of Quantum Field Theory in Statistical Physics," by Abrikosov et al.
