Offering an ideal vantage point from which to enjoy the holiday fireworks spectacular over The Charles River, award-winning Top of the Hub will once again present its annual Fourth of July celebration high above the Back Bay. Top of the Hub is located at 800 Boylston Street on the 52nd floor of The Prudential Tower.

Standing as one of the most popular events on the restaurant’s yearly calendar, the evening-long party begins at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 4, with a complimentary Chef's Welcome Reception featuring an array of passed hors d’oeuvres, food display stations, an open bar and cocktails. (Guests may begin check-in at 5:30 p.m.)

The Liz Tobias Trio will provide live entertainment in The Lounge beginning at 6:00 p.m.

At 7:30 p.m. guests will be seated for a sumptuous five course dinner designed by Executive Chef Stefan Jarausch. A simulcast of the Boston Pops concert, live from the Hatch Shell, begins at 8:30 p.m.  A cash bar will be available throughout the evening. The evening will be completed with a sky-high viewing of the fireworks spectacular over The Charles River at 10:30 p.m. (weather permitting). 

The evening is priced at $250.00 per person (exclusive of gratuity and alcoholic beverages with dinner). Seating is limited and advance credit card reservations are required; the 21+ evening is ticketed, prepaid and nonrefundable.  For information and reservations, please call 617 - 536 - 1775.  The established tone for the event is dressy-casual attire, with collared shirts required for the gentlemen.


Assistant General Manager Michael J. Edwards commented, "Top of the Hub is the only restaurant in the city with this unique vantage point for the Fourth of July.  Many of our guests join us with friends and family on the Fourth as an annual tradition.  What better way to celebrate than with cocktails high above the city, a wonderful meal, patriotic music from the Pops, panoramic views, and a dazzling, birds-eye view of the fireworks over the Charles."
