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.

Live jazz in the lounge area keeps the vibe upbeat but low-key, though game nights do see an influx of Sox fans from nearby Fenway Park and late-night barhoppers looking for a nightcap.

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.

The Best View of Boston
Vivian L. Aug 9, 2013
I always like to bring visiting friends to Top of the Hub for a fancy cocktail before dinner. Located on the 52nd floor of the Prudential Tower, the view around sunset never disappoints and the atmosphere is romantic with live jazz playing in the evenings. Top of the Hub caters to a mainly upscale, older crowd, so the drinks can be a bit pricey but hey, this is a classy establishment and you're being served on one of the highest buildings in Boston. Pretty much any seat in the restaurant/bar will give you a fantastic view of Boston, and they'll allow you to walk around and take photos. This is a must for anyone who lives in Boston or is visiting!
Great Dinner

I had the best lobster pot pie there ever! The dinner is amazing as well as the staff are very nice and timely. I would recommend it to anyone! It is a little high haha which can be scary, so if you are afraid of heights maybe just go to the mall?
