At the Top: Gigapan from the Top of the Hub
In Boston, the main skybar for the city is called the Top of the Hub, which is located at the top of the Prudential Tower near the back bay. The view above is from the bar, which overlooks the city. My visit was during the winter, which leaves something to be desired, but during the summer this would be a wonderful view of the lush Boston Commons and historic core.
Prices for lunch are not that bad. $13 will get you a BLT, which is well above a deli counter but only slightly above a regular range for upscale restaurants. Drinks are also expensive, but not extreme. I actually didn't try any of the food this time around. The skybar isn't too bad of a deal if you are already planning on visiting the SkyWalk. $16 for admission or $16 for a glass of wine and about the same view. You decide.
