Back Bay, Boston –
Located on the fifty-second floor of the Back Bay Prudential Center, Top of the Hub lives up to its name by offering breathtaking panoramic views of the Boston skyline to its clientele of upscale young professionals, chic couples, and jet-setting tourists.
A warm brown and cream décor is set off by expansive windows on all sides, giving the affluent guests plenty to look at from their perches in the elegant dining room, while more enthusiastic travelers and birthday groups pose for photos or point out the sites, from the Boston Common to the Charles River.
Patrons waiting for a window table can pass the time with a cocktail at the bar, or head down to the Skywalk Observatory on the fiftieth floor for a different perspective.
Top of the Hub provides one of the best views in Boston perfect for a special night out on the town to take in the twinkling lights of the city.
Couples on dates, young professionals, jazz lovers, late-night barhoppers, birthday groups, Sox fans, and tourists, late 20s to late 30s.
