Top of the Hub , which first opened back in 1965, had originally planned to close down in April of this year, but the coronavirus outbreak and subsequent restaurant shutdown caused the dining spot to cease operations in mid-March.
However, enjoying the views at the top of the Pru doesn’t come cheap: The observatory costs $21 for adults, and $15 for children.
Please note that Top of the Hub does not rotate, which is a frequently asked question by tourists. Several reviewers commented about the great view and mused, “I was waiting for [the restaurant] to rotate.”
