Coppa Club Igloos
Looking for an alternative foodie experience that takes a really memorable picture? Well date night just got a whole lot more interesting! Coppa Club Igloos are the ultimate culinary experience for adventurers looking to enjoy their food in one of London’s most original and secret venues.
These bad boys offer a quirky alternative to traditional London dining and are likely to fill you with FOMO. Let’s face it, you won’t get something any more unconventional than a riverside brunch in your very own igloo.
What can I expect?
Coppa Club igloos are designed using timber frames and perspex sliding doors, giving you an unobstructed 360° view of some of London’s most iconic features like Tower Bridge and the Shard from the shelter of your own personal recluse. And if you’re a dab hand with a camera, you can squeeze it all into a single pano!
Unlike your typical Igloo, Coppa Club’s are anything but cold. These structures are dominated by rustic decor and generous layers of soft rugs and chair toppers for an elegant but warm finish.
Cushions, candles and Edison bulb string lights only add to the allure, with electric heaters ensuring you stay cosy even in the harshest weather! Trust me, I braved these in the snow.
Coppa Club Food
Already sold on the views? Well the food certainly doesn’t disappoint. Whether you’re starting early with a pastry or tuning in for a couple of cocktails, don’t be afraid to chuck in some nibbles for variety. Coppa Club’s food is surprisingly way more budget friendly than you’d think too. Between the two of us we ordered:
Deep fried truffled gnocchi (3.50)
Italian sausage rolls (3.50)
2x Eggs Benedict served on fresh waffles or toasted English muffins.
Served with crispy Coppa, eggs & hollandaise (8.45)
Served with kiln smoked salmon, spinach, eggs & hollandaise (9.45)
Bellini – Prosecco & white peach purée (6.95)
Bloody Mary – Ketel One vodka, dry sherry, tomato juice & house spice mix (7.45)
Out of everything I’d thoroughly recommend the deep fried truffled gnocchi. And for £3.50 you can’t really go wrong! Brunch is served from 9am whilst Coppa Club’s all day menu is served from 11am.
The service was outstanding. Our nibbles were prepared and served in a matter of minutes shortly followed by our mains (we used an empty table for a bit of extra space as it was just us and another couple). Our waitress was hilarious, her dry humour definitely added to the experience – so no complaints in that department!
Where is Coppa Club?
Dotted alongside the Thames, Coppa Club’s igloos are a temporary addition to the riverside terrace of Coppa Club restaurant and bar. Located just a 5 minute walk from Tower Hill tube station, don’t expect to have enough time to burn off the copious amounts of brunch you’ll be eating!
Address: Coppa Club, 3 Three Quays Walk, Lower Thames Street, London, EC3R 6AH
How do I book an igloo?
Coppa Club release a number of dates available to book at a time. Whilst reserving your slot is completely free, you may incur a £10 charge per no-show. You can book your Igloo for a maximum of eight people, whilst tables of 2-6 should be prepared to share their igloo with other bookings (we actually befriended another couple so… every cloud!).
*Please note: Coppa Club are not currently taking dining reservations, however there are a number of igloos on hold each day for walk-ins so you might want to try your luck this way! If there’s a short wait you can always grab a couple of drinks in the main restaurant and bar!
All in all Coppa Club was a pretty impressive experience and definitely something I’ll be booking again when they release more tables!
