    The Top of The Hub: Great Views of the City

    by Gypsystravels Updated Jan 25, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Before dinner we decided to visit a landmark restaurant/bar/lounge here in Boston. Located on the 52nd floor of the Prudential Tower, the Top of the Hub boasts some of the best views of the city and skyline. The restaurant's décor is elegant with a romantic atmosphere.

    If you are looking for a restuarant to celebrate a special occasion or if you just want an exceptional meal with great atmosphere and views of the city, then I would highly recommend that you make reservations at the Top of the Hub.

    You can also enjoy a few cocktails and a small selection of appetizers at the bar. We enjoyed a few Martini's before heading to dinner at Davio's.

    Dress Code: A full service restaurant and bar.

    The Top of The Hub: Spectacular Nighttime Views

    by risse73 Updated May 12, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This famous restaurant/lounge/live music spot is worth visiting for its wonderful views of the city at its 52nd floor location atop the Prudential Tower. The restaurant offers varied food selections on its menu, service is good, the nightly live music is a bonus, and the bar is a good place to hang out before dinner or even after. Some people just come here for the bar and go someplace for dinner and a night out, but this place can certainly be made as your full stop for the night. I'd say that you've got to try dining here as it's a great experience; however, food is generally of a mainstream orientation. The bar is good and you definitely can't go wrong with the live music from the jazz band. I'd come here anytime for the views, for some food & drinks, and some music; and call it a night. Enjoy!

    The Top of The Hub: Elegant Ambiance with a View

    by Hopkid Written Jul 3, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Top of the Hub is a great place for a quiet meal or drink with a great view of Boston. The dining room covers the entire floor so you if you take a walk around the restaurant (pretend like you're looking for the bathroom!) you can get a glimpse of the entire city. We went in the late evening after dinner for drinks and dessert. The lighting was low and there was a reasonably quiet buzz coming from the other diners. But it was very low key and you didn't have to shout over it when conversing with your dining partners. There was also a jazz quartet playing mellow tunes which really lent a nice air to the ambiance.

    Desserts were surprisingly good for a spot that I would consider there more for the view. Many such places have such disappointing and overpriced food. Not so here. Top of the Hub is a great place to cap off an evening or to hang out to start a night out.

    Dress Code: Smart casual to business

    The Top of The Hub: Best View of Boston

    by genki44 Updated Jul 3, 2003

    The Top of the Hub, on the 52nd floor of the Prudential Building in Boston, provides spectacular views of the city. You can eat or drink in the bar area, for more reasonable prices than in the dining room, and sit right next to the window over-looking Boston.

    Dress Code: No dress code required for the bar area, but if you are going to eat in the dinning room, I would dress up.
