London’s Riverside Igloos Are Back And They’re Cosier Than Ever

Riverside igloos by Thames in London

Remember those igloos that took over our Instagram feeds and filled us all with nagging FOMO?

Well, fear not, as they’ve now made a mighty comeback, and they’re cosier than ever. Boasting amazing views of Tower Bridge and the Shard, Coppa Club‘s party pods (or so we like to call them) will yet again grace the north bank of the Thames, our Instagram feeds, and also our dreams.

After last winter’s sell-out sensation, the Thames-side igloos are returning in a big way. This year, there are be seven igloos, redesigned to rival last year’s drinking and dining pods. On a mission to better last year’s pods, they’re now built with timber frames and Perspex sliding doors, and come kitted out with blankets, heating and speakers to make it ultra cosy. Winter, we love you.

Some igloos contain a dining table and chairs for a sit-down lunch or dinner; others have a more casual layout, with sofas and armchairs, for a comfy drink.

And how much for a two-hour experience in these delightful domes? The surprising answer is… nothing! You can book a slot just like any table at Coppa Club, and you only pay for the (rather reasonably priced) food and drink you consume. (Coppa Club do ask for credit card details when you book, reserving the right to charge £10 per head if you don’t show up. Seems fair enough to us.) Get the whole squad together, as if there are fewer than six of you, you might have to share with others, which, y’know… no.

You’ll find Coppa Club at 3 Three Quays Walk, Lower Thames St, EC3R 6AH. Find out more on  their website.
