Like many countries around the world, the French are no strangers to fighting for their independence. As the Americans revolted against the British crown, the French revolted against the French crown, and celebrate their victory on July 14th. Whether you’re French in NYC, a Francophile, or someone who enjoys incredible food and cultural activities, don’t miss New York City‘s Bastille Day celebrations.

French Restaurant Week

Take a culinary tour of New York City’s best French fare at French Restaurant Week from July 4th through the 17th. Seize the opportunity to sample a variety of French food, pastries, and wines from the comfort of the city streets at discounted and special prix fixe prices. Whether you’re a connoisseur of French culture or simply in the market to try something new, French Restaurant Week offers something for everyone.

The Bastille Day Ball

Dance the night away at Club 404 as patrons celebrate the French nation with local drinks and hors d’oeuvres. The evening begins at 6pm and continues well into the night. If you’re in the mood for the ultimate VIP experience, don’t be afraid to splurge on the gourmet buffet and four hour open bar.
