London’s Riverside Igloos Are Back For Cosy Gin-Fuelled Fun This Winter

Last year, Coppa Club’s snuggly Thames-side globes were the hottest tables in town…

…so naturally, they’ve made a comeback for 2018! While rivals might be wrapping rickety poles in polythene and declaring it ‘festive’, Coppa Club’s beautiful perspex capsules offer crystal clear views of Tower Bridge and the Shard, while keeping your squad satisfyingly snug.

The igloos may have transformed into partly-al-fresco ‘paradise pods’ for the summer, but now they’ve once again welcomed sheepskin rugs, fluffy blankets and twinkling lights for colder months – oh, and closing their doors all the way, too! Some igloos contain dining tables for dinner dates, while others are more laidback with sofas and armchairs. And on the bar menu, Sipsmith will be laying on special winter gin offerings that promise to add a dash of additional merriment. (It’s the ideal end-point for any winter stroll through the city, we reckon.)
