Adding a touch of sparkle to an evening out, Coppa Club, at Tower Bridge, London is the hip new place for eating, drinking, meeting and unwinding.
It overlooks the River Thames, and is a cool place for dinner with its backdrop of twinkly night lights lining the sky. The recent opening of the new outdoor ‘igloos’, dome-shaped pods kitted out with fairy lights and fur blankets, are proving extremely popular… with reservations difficult to secure. They’re now mostly booked out until the end of 2017 – but a limited number are kept aside for walk-ins.
The chic and contemporary styled restaurant is home to a focal-point bar, wooden interiors, cosy fireplace, and a raised floor area, creating a more intimate setting for booths, at the opposite side of the bar. Dramatic views of the stunning London Bridge from the restaurant add to the atmosphere.
Peach bellinis, rather reasonably priced at £5.95 a glass, make for the perfect appetiser. The all-day menu, which includes breakfast/brunch options, offers a wide range of no-fuss European food, including classic crowd-pleasers – from pizzas and pastas, to sirloin steak and burgers.
Main of classic penne carbonara (£11.95) did not disappoint, with its luscious creamy sauce and pasta with just the right bite. To finish, a soft but rich, flourless chocolate and almond cake was utterly delicious, served with orange crème fraiche, for a hint of tang.
