What to do on Independence Day

Despite being celebrated in a much quieter way here than across the pond, American Independence Day is still worth taking note of in London. Famed for an abundance of stars, stripes and burgers, this annual event has something for both Brits and Yanks alike. We’ve rounded up the best of what’s going on in the capital tonight. All you need now is a flag…

Bowling at All Star Lanes
A favourite American pastime (or so we’re led to believe), bowling is perfect for Independence Day. Our current fave, All Star Lanes, will be making the most of this star spangled occasion by offering customers the chance to treat themselves to a special chilli cheese dog for £9.50. Ideal for a post-bowl snack, it is only available until Sunday 6th July. What are you waiting for? It’s time to bowl.

A Very British Independence Day at Mr. Fogg’s
Despite being the definition of all things British, Mayfair cocktail bar Mr. Fogg’s will be swapping top hats for stars and stripes tonight in support of its American cousins. Hosted in association with Bulleit Bourbon, guests will be treated to a selection of themed cocktails including Dodged a Bulleit (Bulleit Bourbon, homemade spicy syrup, blackberry puree, Berry’s Red Port, fresh lemon juice and egg white) for the men and Petticoats and Whisky Notes (Bulleit Bourbon, vanilla infused double cream and dark chocolate liquor) for their lady friends.
