Great View at Top of the Hub Lounge May 12, 2011
The view at Top of the Hub is amazing, and the service was also very good. We went for a drink around dinner time, and it was a little crowded but we were still able to get drinks in a reasonable amount of time. Definitely worth going for at least a drink to see the view.

The previous reviewer said it all when he pointed out the lounge is the best option at Top of the Hub. I've dined in the main section and been for drinks numerous times in the lounge.

The food in the main section is good but pricey. You can probably find a better meal for cheaper somewhere closer to the ground. The lounge is where you should go and don't worry if you want some food because you can get it there too.

They have tables seating 2-6 people scattered about and a full bar with individual stools that you can sit at. There are some TVs for sports, but lets be honest you are there for the view. Have a stroll around and see a view facing towards the Hancock building and down to the harbor, you won't be disappointed.

The drinks will run you $10-15 but you'll have live Jazz music after 7pm and great views from the 57th floor of the Prudential building. I suggest going to the lounge at 7pm for drinks and booking a South End restaurant for your meal after.

There's a restaurant, the Top of the Hub, sitting on top of one of the tallest skyscrapers in Boston (see the website). Excellent food, but you can't get out for under probably US$100 per person... There is also a "Skywalk" where you can look out the observation windows across Boston for a spectacular view for another $11.... All very impressive, but there's an alternative.

The secret is to go to the Top of the Hub Lounge, which is really just part of the restaurant. You get the same 360 degree view of the town from hundreds of feet above the city, but it will cost only ten percent of what it would at the restaurant, and the food and service is still excellent!

There is a drink and food discount during happy hour, but even after that, appetizers large enough for a meal are $10 to $15 for seafood served by the swarm of waiters that surrounds your table. Did I mention the lounge has free jazz most nights?

Even if you just take the long elevator ride up for a look out the windows, it's definitely something to do in Boston. Ask to be seated in the Lounge, unless it's a special event and you want to spend a lot to impress someone.
