The best Bristol rooftop bars for a drink during this week’s ‘heatwave’

Some of them boast sweeping views of the city, Harbourside and even the surrounding countryside

The sun has finally made a long-awaited return so what better time to visit one of Bristol’s great rooftop bars?

With the kids back to school and summer holidays over, the first few days of September can often feel like ‘business as usual’ for most of us but with the forecast ‘Indian summer’ here for the week, there’s still plenty to enjoy.

With the Met Office predicting temperatures of around 28C towards the middle of the week, the next few days may well be the long overdue scorcher we have been waiting for.

Bristol has plenty of drinking haunts, and some of the best are rooftop terraces boasting incredible views.

Here are seven of our favourite alfresco drinking spots, but do let us know if we’ve missed yours and we can add them next time.
