The Hub is a business on FOX comedy That '70s Show, where the gang frequently hangs out.

About

The Hub is Point Place's local teen hangout, a tiny short-order diner renowned amongst Point Place's youth for its french fries. While the pilot depicted it as being a toned-down version of a cowboy bar, subsequent episodes presented it as a 1950s-style soda fountain. Earlier episodes depicted it as containing a small pinball arcade primarily featuring the Williams pinball game "Travel Time."

The Hub also had fake wood paneling and what appears to be a large peace sign painted on the wall behind the jukebox. although as the series progressed and video games rose in popularity, the machines were removed and replaced by a Space Invaders cabinet (a change the manager made after Fez told him that kids like space invaders better), and the Hub was painted, replacing the wood with a simple white wall.

The Hub is a normal hangout for the gang, and is spotted somewhere in the location of an alley, seeing as if you look out the front glass window, there is a building adjacent from its position. From the audiences' point of view, the Hub has a male/female bathroom on its right. Inside, there is a urinal, 2 stalls, a window, and tons of writing on the wall, most notably the writing "Touch Donna Pinciotti's panties for $5.00" written by Kelso, which she then pushes him out the window he was trying to climb out of. The Hub also has a policy: "buy something or get out!"

During opening time there is almost always someone at The Hub, it is a popular hangout for youngsters. There is a food corner where you can order mostly fried food. The entertainment in the hub frequently changes, for a long time there stood a Pinball machine (that Kelso invested in), afterwards there was a Space Invaders machine and later it made place for a foosball table. Sometimes the man (Mitch Hedberg) who works the food corner is depicted as being a jerk who tells conflicting stories. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8NZqD_pJT8
