Location: First Amendment
This event is open only to members of The National Press Club.
Have you ever wished there was a comfortable place to go after the July 4th parade and before the fireworks to cool off and get a drink?
While the Club will be closed on Wednesday July 4, club members and their guests may enjoy a low-key July 4th event in the First Amendment Lounge. THIS IS A RESERVATION-ONLY EVENT AND YOU MUST RESERVE BY MONDAY JULY 2 AT NOON. The July 4 event will be from 4:30-10:30p.m. You and your family or guests can stop by on your way to the fireworks and cool off and enjoy drinks (beer, wine, sodas etc) and snacks while taking in the great views of DC from the First Amendment Lounge with your fellow Press Club members. When the PBS broadcast begins, there will be a big screen where everyone can watch the proceedings together.
Tickets are $10 for members and $15 for guests. Kids are free but reservations are required for all. Members who have not reserved in advance for the July 4 event will not be admitted to the Club as the Club is officially closed for July 4. To be sure you can obtain access on July 4 it would be best to come to the Club July 2 to obtain a wristband indicating you have made a reservation.
