Coppa Club summer igloos

Remember the fabulous Coppa Club igloos that take over our Instagram feeds each year and fill us with FOMO?

Well, they’re returning with a springtime twist—and it’s the happy news we’ve all been waiting for! Now that restaurants have the green light to open for outdoor dining on April 12, Coppa Club‘s igloos will be the perfect spot to celebrate. And rest assured: it goes without saying that your safety will remain number one priority, with government guidelines strictly adhered to.

Coppa Club’s famous riverside igloos are being transformed into stunning private party pods, decorated to mimic the spring transformations taking place across the country. Think blossoms and blooms, and you won’t be far off. Plus, you’ll be able to sink into woven wicker chairs, snuggle beneath linen throws if the weather turns chilly, and watch the bamboo lanterns turn on as the sun goes down. The spring designs extend to Coppa Club’s outdoor terrace, which has even more space for those of us deprived of winsome dining spots in the past year.

Note: these are 2019’s igloos. They might look a little different this summer!

That’s all of us, really, isn’t it? Anyhow, the Coppa Club igloos provide the perfect catchup for friends and family; not only are they as Instagrammable as ever, but they also boast fantastic panoramic views across the Thames, meaning you can marvel at the Shard, Tower Bridge and the HMS Belfast as you tuck into Coppa Club’s delightful new summer menu.

We know you’ve all been dreaming about restaurant food for months now, and Coppa Club won’t disappoint you in that department either. Cuisine leans towards seasonal European fare, including seared garlic king prawns, Devon crab linguine, and sourdough pizzas. Oh, and from May 3, Coppa Club are making things extra special with an exclusive menu for igloo diners, boasting the likes of tuna tartare with yuzu and capers, a 1kg porterhouse steak for two, and rich chocolate fondant, served with caramelised white chocolate and salted caramel ice cream.

Bookings for the igloos officially go live on March 17, with reservations starting on April 12 and running until June 20 – and if there’s one thing we can guarantee about the Coppa Club igloos, it’s that they’ll book up rapidly! You can book a place on the Coppa Club website, and the restaurant itself will open for indoor dining on May 17, in line with updated government guidelines. Will this be the year you finally live the igloo life?

Meanwhile, this sky-high terrace is also reopening for diners on April 12.
