A visit to American Apparel may be in order for those star-spangled jorts you’ve been eyeing, they’d fit right in at this hip hotspot with a view of the fireworks set to a sick soundtrack. Party starts at 2p, poolside.

Perch LA

Park your pretty posse at this sky-high penthouse and enjoy hand-crafted cocktails at this French-infused beauty. Grand Park is having a 4th of July block party with fireworks set off from the Dorothy Chandler pavilion. You’ll have a birds eye view from your nest high above the downtown lala landscape.

Feeling patriotic but would rather party privately? Rent out these divine Dogtown digs. The Rootop Terrace is a perfect fireworks viewing locale, considering the proximity to Marina del Rey’s spectacular star-spangled show.

Capella Washington D.C., Georgetown

The fourth of July in our nation’s capital is unlike any other city’s celebration. Post up at the Capella rooftop bar and take a dip in the pool before sunset cocktails. Then pedal your pals over to the National Mall for one of the country’s greatest fireworks displays, lighting up the Washington Monument, Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials.

Brooklyn Grange

Have your fourth on a farm! A rooftop farm in Brooklyn that is. Fireworks will be set off over the East River, which means this glorious garden has front-row seats. “While most of the waterfront will be on lockdown, [you’ll] be maxing and relaxing on the roof, munching on a classically-American dinner, sipping on ice cold, locally brewed Brooklyn Brewery beer and listening to some good old classic Americana tunes.”

Note, this venue is officially sold out for the 4th of July!

The Modern Honolulu

A stay at The Modern Honolulu won't simply be a great fourth of July day, it will be a weekend experience. Grab your clubs and hit the links for a round of early golf, then dine al fresco at Morimoto Waikiki. Head to the First Friday art show in Chinatown where art galleries and shops stay open late and experience the vibrant art scene. On the 4th itself park yourself at the adults-only Sunset pool deck for a front-row seat of the massive Ala Moana Beach Park show. Round out your night at the Modern Honolulu's classic speakeasy "The Study" and opt for the  "Pamper Package" at the spa on your way out of town. You're welcome.
