Skip the Mall madness for a Fourth of July fireworks viewing party at the Rosewood Hotel’s rooftop bar, CUT Above. Indulge in Chef Andrew Skala’s family-style menu and a 375ml bottle of Krug Cuvée Champagne, with prime views overlooking the Kennedy Center and the Potomac River. Menu items include jalapeno cornbread, crab tartlets, slow cooked beef short ribs, lobster mac and cheese, watermelon sorbet, and strawberry rhubarb pie.
If you’d prefer to watch the fireworks from the water, reserve a spot with Boating in DC and paddle a guided path from Key Bridge Boathouse or Thompson Boat Center to their designated viewing spot. Enjoy the fireworks over some of DC’s most iconic monuments. Single or double kayaks, canoes, and stand-up paddleboards are all available.
