36 Hours at Hub50House, Boston’s Newest Luxury Apartments in the West End

February 25, 2020

From Friday afternoon to Saturday night, here’s what life is like for a member of the newest luxury apartments at Hub50House on Causeway.

What does a day look like for a member of Hub50House? The newest luxury apartments in Boston’s West End sit right in a neighborhood that has quickly emerged as one the hottest for dining and entertainment in the city. And the openings keep coming

Come along for a 36-hour tour of life as a Hub50House member.


On top of the world | 5 p.m.

Bye-bye, work. Hello, weekend. 

What’s the plan? On a balmy day in June, you’d likely head straight from your downtown job to the 38th floor of the West End’s newest luxury apartments. Dip your toes in the pool (the highest in Boston), drink in hand. Instantly feel those weekday troubles wash away.

But, until dreams of summer become a reality, The Hub on Causeway delivers year round.

On this particular wintery day, you let convenience rule with a trip to next-door Star Market to pick up dinner. Since moving into Hub50House, you’ve found yourself quite at home cooking in your sleek new kitchen. And dining with an eye out the 9-foot floor-to-ceiling windows always gives you a feeling of being on top of the world. 

Matching your vibe | 7 p.m.

You get word other members are gathering in the Club Room. The vibe of this space says the weekend has definitely arrived, so you settle into a lounge chair with some friends. Panoramic windows capture the Boston skyline, twinkling in the early evening. Last Friday, everyone headed to Night Shift Brewing’s nearby taproom, just 0.2 miles down the street, but tonight you have other plans. 

Best Picture winner | 9 p.m.

ArcLight Cinemas is no ordinary movie theater — that’s why you’ve become a regular. (Of course, it doesn’t hurt that HubClub members get VIP-access to coveted screenings.) 

Located literally steps from Boston’s newest luxury apartments at Hub50House, ArcLight joined the ever-increasing lineup of entertainment at The Hub on Causeway in late 2019. After some debate, your group decides to catch Best Picture-winner Parasite to see what the Oscars’ buzz is all about. You grab a draft beer from the lobby bar and some house-made caramel corn and settle into an ultra-plush seat to enjoy the show.

I dream of brunch | 10 a.m.

Good morning! We see you’ve made your way to our next-door neighbor, Banners Kitchen & Tap, for brunch. Kicking off the day at a 25,000-square-foot restaurant and sports bar with a TV-screen the size of a football field (well, it’s close) sets the tone for the rest of the afternoon. 

Five months since the grand opening, The Hub on Causeway newcomer ups the brunch game with “Instagram-worthy food” and an electric atmosphere. For those among us with a sweet tooth, the house-made skillet cinnamon rolls or churro donuts will do the trick. Pick avocado toast or huevos rancheros if you prefer to go easy on the sugar. Of course, the signature clothesline bacon is a given.

It’s paradise | Noon

Post brunch calls for a stroll, especially on this unseasonably warm Saturday. 

Did you know you live in paradise? Just look up the Walk Score for Hub50House’s address. Rated both a Walker’s and Rider’s Paradise, the West End comes loaded with options. 

Zoom across the city via North Station or explore the neighborhood on foot. Not far from TD Garden and Causeway Street you find the Boston Harborwalk, a 43-mile public walkway that links eight Boston neighborhoods. 

A Peloton with a view | 2 p.m.

Back at The Hub, inspiration strikes, so you head to the fitness center at Hub15, our collection of amenities on the 15th floor. Take your pick among Peloton bikes, treadmills, TRX bands, strength-training equipment, and more. 

The best part? If the workout doesn’t take your breath away, the view will. A wall of floor-to-ceiling windows puts on a stunning display, from the Zakim Bridge to the Inner Harbor and Charlestown. 

Game on | 4 p.m.

Anticipation is in the air. Saturday night is approaching, after all. A few rounds of pool in the Game Room at Hub15 serve as a warmup before dinner. 

Good cheers | 7 p.m.

Whoa! You can hardly react any other way when you enter Guy Fieri’s Tequila Cocina within Big Night Live, a premium live music venue that opened at The Hub on Causeway last fall. 

The famed spiky-haired chef obviously has a flair for design. Just check out the domed ceiling, exposed pipes, urban art, and bold color choices. (Hi, orange!) The menu offers playful interpretations of Latin street food (Trash Can Nachos, anyone?) paired with cocktails and over 100 tequilas. You leave happy — and ready for more. 

Sipping away | 10 p.m.

An elevator ride to the top floor of ArcLight Cinema brings you to Sound Advice, a brand-new cocktail lounge from the creators of one of New York City’s most celebrated bars, Death & Co. 

Bring your group to the lounge-style tables underneath 30-foot ceilings to sip on a signature Palindrome, an irresistible mix of Laird’s Bonded and Clear Creek apple brandies, corn orgeat, sweet cream, a whole egg (!), vanilla, and salted coconut. 

Isn’t it nice to know Hub50House is only 10 feet down the street? When you head home to Boston’s newest luxury apartments, you know for sure: You’ve arrived.
