What the **** is open on July 4th?? Regardless of the plan, it’s always good to know. For the BBQ hosts, it could be some last minute supplies from the grocery store. For the guests, perhaps a trip to the liquor store on the way (or the mid-party re-stocking!). And for those who prefer to go out – bars & restaurants. We’ve all felt the frustration of finding the hastily printed “Closed for theHoliday” or “Closed Early” sign taped to the door.
In my first few months running HoursOf.com, I saw high traffic on holidays (Easter, Memorial Day). Since HoursOf is already the easiest way to find open businesses on “normal” days (if I do say so myself), I figured we were a natural fit for attacking the Holiday Hours problem.
We have collected July 4th Holiday Hours from over 1,000 businesses – Restaurants, Bars, Grocery Stores, & Liquor Stores in select neighborhoods throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan (list below). We are excited to be officially launching a beta of Holiday Hours in time for this Thursday, July 4th!

Any questions or feedback on how to make the site even better are also very welcome & appreciated. Since this data is most valuable for about ONE day, please consider sharing it with anyone you know from Brooklyn or Manhattan.
I genuinely hope this helps you find out What’s Open for the holiday, and saves you from wasting time going to closed businesses.
When one door closes, find an open one.
