We may be more than 3,000 miles away from our friends across the pond, but Londoners sure know how to throw a good Fourth of July party. If you're celebrating Independence Day (Tuesday July 4 2017) in the capital this year, check out where and when the best shindigs are taking place below.

Hungry? Where to dine out on July 4th
Premises Café & Bistro
You might hear a ditty or two at this Haggerston café-cum-bistro - it's attached to the Premises rehearsal and recording studio, on Hackney Road. You might even see a famous face, though your best bets are via the signed photos of the likes of Guillemots, Terry Callier and, er, Charlotte Church. The kitchen here knocks out plates from breakfast 'til late, with everything from full Englishes and veggie breakfasts to Mediterranean lunches, an Ottoman lamb and chicken casserole, moussaka and shish kebabs, cooked on a charcoal grill. Tables out front prove popular come summertime.
Venue says: “Come and try our homemade traditional Turkish meze and barbecue dinner menu available after 5.30pm all week!”
