If you want a drink with the view of Boston, you can't do better than the Top Of The Hub. Among th most popular items on the menu are whiskey cocktails which are strong, taste good, and are decently priced, and the desserts like the huge chocolate layer cake and geren tea ice cream. The minimum for eating at a window (view of the city) is $24 which isn't too hard to reach.

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.

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.

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.

Must go to Restaurant. One of the top meals I have ever had in my life. I had the tasters menu and it was definitely worth it.

Minimum charge of $25 for table with the best view in Boston - well worth it. Standing at the bar on a non-crowded night is also good.

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.

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.
