The nearest tube station is Tower Hill which is about an 8 minute walk.
How do I book a Coppa Club igloo?
There are two ways to book an igloo at the Coppa Club Tower Bridge. You can make a reservation in advance or you can try to nab a walk-in booking with no reservation.
Making a reservation at the Coppa Club
To make a successful Coppa Club igloo booking, you need to know when the booking windows open because the igloos book up FAST – like trying to get hold of Glastonbury tickets.
They are currently booking through to September and already many dates are sold out.
Eating at the Coppa Club with no reservation
The Coppa Club igloos are incredibly popular and often booked up well in advance. If you have missed out on booking for the day you require, there is a chance you can still grab an igloo.
Our advice is to go just before opening time and during the week if possible. The Coppa Club keeps one igloo free for walk-ins.
What time does the Coppa Club Tower Bridge open?
Monday to Friday: 11.30 am to 10 pm
Saturday: 10.30 am to 10 pm
Sunday: 10.30 am to 8 pm
How much does it cost to book a Coppa Club igloo?

Can kids eat at the Coppa Club?
Kids are welcome at the Coppa Club and there’s a pretty good and very reasonably priced kids’ menu. It’s a great option if you’ve spent the day visiting London with kids and want something a little different, particularly if you’re visiting London at Christmas.
It’s one of the most child friendly restaurants in London.
Are the Coppa Club igloos heated?
If you are visiting London in the winter, you will be pleased to know that the igloos at the Coppa Club are heated.
They are surprisingly cosy even on the coldest winter days. That said, when the servers come in and out with your order, you will get a blast of cold air.
You will also need to pop into the main restaurant if you need to go to the toilet so it is wise to wrap up warm with layers.
Which Coppa Club has the igloos?
The Coppa Club Tower Bridge may be the most well-known of all of the Coppa Clubs but it was not the first. The first Coppa Club was opened in 2015 in Sonning-on-Thames.
They also have igloos if you do not want to come into central London. See here for details of the the Coppa Club Sonning.
The Coppa Club Brighton is the third location to have igloos.
We loved the igloo and the meal at the Coppa Club in Sonning.
My question is – which company did you use to purchase the Igloos..Reason for asking is that we would like to purchase one for our garden and we loved the one in Sonning. We will have friends and family around and will tell them about the gorgeous igloos, environment and meals at the Coppa Club which is where we got the idea from to purchase so please let me know how I might contact the company direct…My thanks,
Hi Jenny – thanks for your message. I would say your best bet is to start with sending them a message on Facebook and take it from there – https://www.facebook.com/WeAreCoppaClub
I am visiting Coppa Club (Igloo) on the 17’th of August with my boyfriend for our two year anniversary. It says that after 5pm, there shall be a minimum spend of £180, but we are only 2 people. Is this still a must?
Thanks for your question. This is a tricky one to answer because everyone has different tastes and different budgets. It is a lot of money to spend for 2 people and there are lots of amazing restaurants in London to choose from. It is a pretty unique experience so you should take that into account. I hope you enjoy it if you decide to do it.
If you eat in the igloo is it a set meal or can you choose from the full menu
Hi Gill – you can choose from the main menu too – but only igloo diners can choose from the Coppa Club Igloo menu.
Hi – it looks like the whole of July is booked up at the moment so the best option would be to try to go early evening and see if you can get a walk in. It is £25 per person minimum spend off-peak (11am – 6.30pm).
Hello, myself and two other family members are coming to London from Australia for Xmas, we were wondering if you are open for lunch on Christmas Day? If yes how do we book please.

I just got off the phone with the club and they stated to make a reservation the month prior. So if you go on the website in November, you will be able to book for December. Hope that helps!!
Bonjour, j attends avec impatience pour réserver un igloo pour 3 personnes pour le vendredi 18 novembre 19h pour fêter les 18 ans de mon fils !
