Staying in the city for the Fourth of July weekend? Not only are these six restaurants open on Tuesday, they’re celebrating, too.


1 The Signature Room

The Signature Room, located on the 95th floor, along with the lounge on the 96th floor, are both open on Tuesday, July 4 for regular business hours so you can toast America's birthday with a proper glass of Champagne. The Signature Room is open for dinner from 5-10 p.m., and The Signature Lounge is open from 11-12:30 a.m. Reservations are strongly recommended for the restaurant and can be made by calling 312.280.0465.
