Even if it's only for drinks. We went there for drinks, ended up staying for dinner and live music. Such a great atmosphere. Beautiful views of Boston. Try the mango peach martini. Yum. And I ordered the Kobe Beef hot dog sliders. Amazing.

For an indoor observatory on the 50th floor out of only 52, the admission is a bit overpriced. For like $23 bucks you can go to the top of the Marina Bay Sands hotel in Singapore. Save your $16 and spend it at the restaurant...More

Really great service and the view is amazing. Most likely need a reservation. You are really paying for the amazing view- the food is good, but its not the most amazing steak I've ever had.

The view of Boston from Top of the Hub is awesome. I recently went as part of a work trip and left with quite mixed feelings. Overall, I believe I would go back for just drinks, possibly an appetizer, just to enjoy the view. Otherwise,...More

Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the
heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and
the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable
skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock
Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit
Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques
– as well as every other kind of store imaginable –
all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice
