All of These Restaurants Will Close for Fourth of July [Updated]

Don’t visit Kachka, Dame, or Laurelhurst Market on Wednesday


In the United States, the week of Fourth of July is often dedicated to beer, hunks of barbecued or grilled meat, and cheesecakes dotted with patriotic combinations of blueberries and strawberries. It’s not as often known for elaborate dinners out and about, or cocktails late into the night at dark and dusty two-tops. Many restaurants take advantage of the usually slow week to close, letting employees relax and celebrate a country that’s, let’s be real, getting harder to celebrate day by day. So if you’re craving a pastry or a pierogi, bad news: These restaurants are taking a holiday for Fourth of July. If you’re looking for a place to watch the fireworks, this map might be more helpful. This list will be updated as restaurants announce closures. Own a bar or restaurant that’s taking a break? Let us know.
