Brussels may not be famed for hot weather, but when (if) summer comes around and the skies clear, there's no place like a rooftop to make the most of the warmer season.

The city is increasingly looking up for new spaces that locals and visitors alike can discover. Here's our guide to the best spots to take your aperitif to the next level.

The Roof at The 1040, Place Jourdan

The bar has great views of Place Jourdan and the European quarter – an ideal place to network with an Aperol spritz.

This one is for anyone looking to avoid the crowds of Place de Luxembourg on Thursdays. The party kicks off with a DJ on Fridays and Saturdays.

The Museum of Musical Instruments

This iconic Art Nouveau building at the top of the Mont des Arts provides a stunning view of the capital. Sit outside for a drink or a bite on warm days, although there is indoor seating in case the weather takes a turn for the worse.
