With Tower Bridge in all its splendid neo-gothic majesty providing a backdrop and dramatic views of the skybank skyline adjacent, Coppa Club’s location makes for an undeniably spectacular spot for dinner.
With sunny rooftops in the summer now a very distant memory, winter themed terraces, pop ups and igloos are the perfect tonic for cooler winter evenings. It is ofcourse the nine riverside igloos with their "Hygge" inspired sensibilities that Coppa Club Tower bridge is best known for. The signature pods come with blankets, dangling winter blooms and rustic lamps, signaling that coziness, relaxation and warmth is the mode du jour.
The menu is best described as modern Italian with a selection that will delight meat and fish lovers. We kicked things off with seared juicy king prawns in a rich garlicky, chilli, lemon sauce served on warm rustic bread. We couldn't get enough of our second starter, a show stopping milky Puglian burrata served with a sweet aubergine caponata sprinkled with pine nuts, basil and olive oil.
The mains were alo impressive. The 10oz Rib eye steak that we opted for is not for the faint hearted. It's a generous portion of British grass-fed steak at its best, cooked to your preference and served with melt in your mouth porcini butter that has an earthy flavour, fresh watercress and pleasingly crunchy skinny fries. We also loved the grilled marinated chicken which comes with a choice of chimichurri, peppercorn or mushroom and tarragon sauce as an accompaniment. The chicken was succulent and cooked to perfection and also served with a generous portion of fries and a fresh side salad rocket and parmesan.
The pudding menu did not disappoint. After a lot of deliberation we opted for the flourless chocolate cake- a thick wedge of chocolatey heaven that came with a strong supporting cast of orange creme fraiche and caramelized almonds. We also fell in love with the silky creme brulee, its smooth custard perfectly finished off with a lip smacking gloriously caramelized sugar topping.
The cocktail menu offers an impressive selection of sophisticated sips. We adored the Ginger Nut, a perfect wintery concoction of bourbon, Saliza Amaretto, ginger and cinnamon.
