Cosy up in Coppa Club’s igloos

Everyone loves a spot of alfresco drinking or dining, but at this time of year?! Brrrrr!!! Well, now you can eat and drink while enjoying the outdoors, and keep satisfyingly snug too, inside festive pop-up pods from Coppa Club.

From these timber-framed globes, with sliding perspex doors, you get 360 degree views of your surroundings, while always staying winter warm.

Each igloo has heating and speakers for added ambience and is decked out like a Scandinavian sitting room to create that hygge factor. The decor is designed around a winter woodland theme, with twinkly lights, candle lanterns, evergreen fauna, plus warm blankets and snuggly sheepskins.

That’s where Fab Fleece Co came in, of course! We supplied the finest sheepskins to drape around Coppa Club’s latest trio of pods that have just popped up outside their newest venue in Brighton’s South Lanes. Clustered round the dolphin statue in Brighton Square, the igloos will stay in situ over the winter months.

If you’ve not come across Coppa Club before, aside from the new Brighton club, they have four other venues in their home county of Berkshire plus a London outpost at Tower Bridge. This is where the igloo concept first took off and became a runaway success the past couple of winters, with eight enviable pods overlooking the Thames across to The Shard.

So if you’re visiting London or Brighton this winter, try and grab yourself an igloo experience. The bookable spots sold out super quick after their release in late October, but they still keep open a few walk in slots everyday so you may get lucky.

And if you can’t snag a spot in an igloo, the main Coppa Clubs still offer a very laid-back and inviting place to stop by. Designed to feel like a members club but one that is open to everyone, each venue combines smart dining with more casual spaces for a coffee, cocktail and food.

Open all day, every day, the lounge areas are comfy with sofas to relax in. There's great wifi and plug sockets if you want to use the venue for work meetings or settling in with your laptop. Then when work is done you can gravitate around the clubs' iconic copper bar.

Sounds like our kind of place. Think it may be some time before they open a Coppa Club here in Norfolk though, but we can keep our fingers crossed!
