To Do After The Fireworks: The Midnight Pool Party at the Joule
The best place to spend a hot, sticky Fourth of July is in a pool. But to really do it up in style, you'll head to The Joule for its July 3 midnight pool party that's part of a stay-two-nights, get-one-free deal.
The Dallas hotel's pool is incredible—we named it one of our top 10 death-defying rooftop hotel pools. It hangs off of the side of the building and gives the illusion that you are swimming off of the edge. A plexiglass window allows you to see the city while you splash about.
For the midnight pool party, which runs from 10:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m., you can nosh on light bites from Charlie Palmer restaurant and dance to a DJ set from Foster The People. The hotel says the dress code is "bikinis and glam cover-ups."
To get into the pool party for free, you have to stay three nights, the third of which will be complimentary. Rates start at $249 a night. If you only want to hang at the pool and not spend the night, get a ticket for $45 by calling 214-748-1300, asking for the concierge and saying the password "Foster the People."
