Summer is nearly over, but there should still be a couple of sunny days ahead. So if you have missed out on any summer activities – now is the time. To help you enjoy those last hours of sunshine before autumn kicks in, here is a look back on our discoveries in August – including great Italian lunch, fabulous ice cream and two new terraces.

The Crystal Bar at the Sofitel Louise is always a great place for a cocktail – and even more so in fine weather. Enjoy their outdoor terrace while you can!

Not quite as stylish, but nevertheless worth a visit is the Play Label Rooftop Bar atop the Crosly Bowling alley near Sablon. Along with cold beer and reasonably priced wine, you will a great view of the city – for free!

Talking about drinks: Have you already tried the Lindemans Premium Gin, made of their Kriek beer? You should give it a try – it’s delicious. More details and two special gin cocktail recipes can be found in our post here.

Moving on to the food section, here is a true highlight: We tried the Cibacco Italian foodbike – and were more than happy with their offerings. It’s a great way to enjoy your lunchbreak!

For dessert, may we suggest some ice cream? We recently blogged about Comus and Gasterea – their kriek bier flavour was truly special – and the Gelateria Il Monello, where the Dark Chocolate/Orange combination blew us away. Interested in more of the sweet stuff? Then come back to the blog on Friday, when we will present of list of 5 Best Ice Cream places in Brussels with 5 flavours to try!
