The concept behind Coppa Club is that it has all the benefits of a members club but without the fees and exclusivity. So, you can expect all-day dining, suitable for both early risers and night owls, networking-style events, a community feel and even laptop-friendly spaces, but without the usual price tag. There are over ten Coppa Clubs around the UK, but the Tower Bridge branch is one of the most recognised because of its incredible location and stunning views.
While many people know of Coppa Club Tower Bridge thanks to the viral sensation of its outdoor pods, there's much more on offer here than just an Instagram-worthy setting. The cosy lounge space, for example, is decorated with rich colours, sinkable chairs and lots of greenery for a laid-back, lived-in feel. It's a great space for enjoying a coffee and looking out to the terrace. There's also a sophisticated restaurant with large booths for ordering a snack, lunch or dinner at, and a bar which serves both coffee and cocktails, and everything in between.
The food menu has a modern European feel, with dishes from Spain, Italy and Britain all included. The list boasts a lot of crowd pleasers so that there's something for everyone. Choose from a range of sourdough pizzas, fresh salads, antipasti, pastas and on-the-grill dishes. Highlights include rare-seared yellowfin tuna, grilled marinated chicken with skinny fries, king prawn linguine, and the club Caesar salad. And, at the weekend, there's a great brunch selection with buckwheat and rye pancakes, crushed avocado and eggs and the skillet breakfast with sausage, bacon, black pudding, eggs and all the trimmings.
Drinks wise, expect all the usuals when it comes to coffee - from a cortado to a chai latte - and when you're in the mood for something stronger the bar has a fabulous cocktail menu. We like the sound of the Cuban Missionary with Havana Club Cuban Spiced, peach, honey, pineapple juice and fresh mint, and the Scots 75 with Hendrick's gin, strawberries, rhubarb and Piper Heidsieck Brut NV Champagne.
