On Thursday 26th May London Mums were invited to a summer party at the Coppa Club in Tower Bridge. This Coppa Club restaurant has several Igloos (that can be reserved in two hours slots, Monday to Sunday, 11am until close for a maximum of eight guests) overlooking the River Thames situated next to the Tower of London. The riverside setting with stunning panoramic views of the city is iconic. Both the location and the style of food make it this fine dining experience perfect for date night.
The entrance to the restaurant was dressed with vibrant pink flowers making it look very summery, giving a look of London in ‘bloom’.
The igloos are a great attraction for visitors to come to the restaurant. Our experience in the igloo was that they seem to be very cosy, we had a chance to sit in the igloo before the next set of people arrived for their booking. Inside the igloo, you can see the view of Tower Bridge and the river Thames. It’s very peaceful sitting and looking over the River Thames admiring the views.
There are ten private pods available, with nine available to pre-book and one available for walk-ins, with a minimum spend of £30 per head. Each one offers a piece of holiday heaven on the riverside, complete with a brand new, vibrant design of wicker furniture, bean bags, wicker lamp shades and decorated in pretty eucalyptus and bougainvillaea. Each Coppa pod serves a special menu – perfect for a bit of ‘summer indulgence’ and can be paired with a glass of Château Minuty rosé wine. The menu features thoughtful, unfussy small plates and specials include starters of pea, broad bean and courgette bruschetta with buffalo ricotta, lemon and mint and mains of sea reared trout on la plancha with herbed freekeh, red onion, parsley, lemon and watercress salad. A new summer menu will also be introduced using the freshest local produce.
Coppa Club Tower Bridge restaurant serves general European/Italian dishes including pizza, pasta, salad, wines, and cocktails. As we were invited to a summer party we were able to try various dishes from calamari, chorizo, garlic bread, various pizzas and courgette fries etc etc. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant itself has plenty of seating the menu features a great selection of snacks and sharing plates (ideal cocktail accompanying food) as well as more substantial mains. The food was delicious.
Coppa Clubs menu focuses on thoughtful, unfussy, European food from small plates and snacks to grilled mains, sourdough pizzas and healthy salads.
Coppa Club Tower Bridge has a brand-new terrace look in advance of their upcoming ‘Summer of Escapism’. Channelling Riviera vibes with an enviable outside area. A sloping white washed wall marks the entrance from where guests can walk through a beautiful whimsical flower tunnel, whisking them away to a terrace of sun kissed colours from bright Bougainvillea plants in plentiful terracotta pots, reams of twinkling festoon lights, palm trees taking centre stage and elegant pods to enjoy with friends come rain or shine – paired with a European menu and glass of rosé in hand, guests will be instantly transported to balmy holidays in the Mediterranean.
Coppa Club first opened six years ago in Sonning as a space that combined all the best elements of a café, bar, restaurant and lounge into one offering that provided something for everyone – a private members club experience, without the membership fees, with an informal, relaxed feel.
Current locations include The Georgian, Putney, Tower Bridge, Clifton Village, Cobham Village, Henley-On-Thames, Maidenhead, Brighton, as well as Streatley-On-Thames and Sonning-On-Thames, which both include a riverside hotel.
