We have booked for the 3rd July next year and wondered if the roof top bar will be only booking for the 4th July as we noticed its Independence Day thanks
clearmeadowjake, thank you for your question. St. Cloud will be fully open for business on Independence Day and the days surrounding it. Please note however that we do occasionally host private events, which would have an effect on opening hours. When it is closer to your stay, feel free to reach out to us directly to confirm the opening days/times. We are looking forward to welcoming you to The Knickerbocker.
