Even though Independence Day is an American holiday, that doesn’t mean we can’t join in the festivities on this side of the pond. In fact, with so many US citizens living in London, there’s plenty that you can see and do around the city if you want to get involved. Undoubtedly a top choice is heading to the former home of Benjamin Franklin, the founding father of the United states.
Enjoy a glass of bubbly and slice of cake while you learn about his history and the journey to American independence. Alternatively, for that all-American experience, why not pay a visit to Sea Containers at Mondrian London? Enjoy some of your favourite American-inspired treats including hot dogs and oreo milkshakes while listening to a live American band, all from the bar’s beautiful riverside terrace. Joe’s Southern Table and Bar is embracing 4th July with a bourbon-inspired menu, as well as giveaways from Jim Beam, pancakes and mint juleps, to celebrate both the American holiday and the birthday of the Jim Beam brand. In fact, there’s a whole host of places across the city you can head to in order to embrace the spirit of this great American holiday.
According to Timeout, London has some pretty amazing American eateries, with a few of the best being Balthazar, The Blues Kitchen, Bodean’s Comfort Kitchen, Electric Diner, HotBox and Shotgun. However, these are just a few, so check out what’s going on near you, and let us know your top picks for the future, because even though today is a celebration, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy some American grub any day of the year.
