Given its view of the city, it's the obvious choice for watching July 4 fireworks. For $200, you can watch fireworks while eating a five-course meal (21 and over).

Head up to the lounge on the 52nd floor for evening drinks (careful, they're strong!) and watch the sun set over Boston.

Get a corner seat, makes for the best view. Get the Pork Chop w/caramelized apples with mac and cheese, it was out of this world. The Crme brle was the awesome. One of the best meals I've ever had.

Great jazz every night. "It's beautiful to take a chance, and if you fall you fall, and I'm thinking I wouldn't mind at all."

In 1858, Oliver Wendall Holmes referred to the Massachusetts State House Building as the Hub of the Solar System. Bostonians liked the sound of that so the nickname, with minor modifications, stuck.

Make sure you ask for a window seat. It's much better and definitely worth the extra wait.

The view from the north and east sides are probably the best; if you're there earlier enough, ask for a table on one of those sides.

Don't be sarcastic about the $24/person minimum, they won't get it and will break down the prices for you. Still, lovely place.

If you are a tourist make sure you bring photo ID with DOB. As a 37 yr old, I was ID checked for the first time in 20 years. My parter didn't have a passport and was refused service.

Fabulous view. Cheesy interior decor 80s flashbacks. Average drinks. View makes up for everything though
