Coppa Club comes to Cobham in time for Christmas
PUBLISHED: 11:49 23 November 2020
The lounge bar and restaurant famed for its igloo pods is set to open in the village on December 9.
The spacious new Coppa Club venue on Between Street spans two floors and will feature five heated igloo pods on the roof terrace of the building - perfect for snuggling up in with your household bubble in the leadup to Christmas.
Designed to be a home-away-from-home for guests to stay all day and transition from work to play, the Cobham village townhouse’s stylish and contemporary interiors have been designed by Fox & Church.
By day the open-plan ground floor will be flooded with natural light from the glass roof and play host to everyone from working professionals wanting to escape the commute and the confines of their ‘home office’ to families lunching by the fireplace.
The collection of multi-purpose spaces spread across both floors of the building will enable guests to breakfast in the morning, host meetings over coffee in the lounge, take dinner in the private dining room and finish the day with cocktails at the central bar, which serves a list of classic cocktails with a Coppa twist including Negroni made Brighton Gin from their Sussex-based restaurant alongside a range of wines and beers.
Upstairs, the expansive rooftop terrace garden also provides a welcoming space to meet for a drink and is where you will find the much-loved signature igloos, which each come with heated flooring, individual sound systems, blankets and foliage inspired by the vineyards of Champagne.
The all-day menu focuses on thoughtful, unfussy food from small plates and snacks to grilled mains, sourdough pizzas and healthy salads. Seasonal European dishes include Devon crab linguine with capers & chilli, Loch Duart salmon on the plancha with braised puy lentils and garlic & rosemary roast lamb rump, while groups can share plates of seared garlic king prawns and truffle and smoked mozzarella arancini.
Those looking for a lighter bite can choose from the ‘buddha bowl’ filled with grains, tenderstem broccoli & rocket topped with a soft-boiled egg and drizzled with tahini dressing and the ‘super greens and seeds’ with broccoli, beetroot, quinoa and toasted seeds, ideal for those looking for sustenance post workout.
At weekends, brunch-lovers can expect a similarly laidback affair with plates of buckwheat and rye pancakes topped with either fresh berries, coconut yoghurt and granola or served with bacon, maple syrup and Netherend Farm butter. The bar team will also be on hand to mix up a mean Bloody Mary or Mimosa.
Guests dining in igloos can also enjoy an exclusive dishes such as, sashimi-grade Tuna Tartare with yuzu and caper dressing and luxurious 1kg Porterhouse Steak for two with café de Paris butter, grilled mushrooms and crispy onion rings.
Coppa Club opened its first venue in the Berkshire village of Sonning-on-Thames five years ago with the aim of creating a members’ only club-style space that was open to everyone. Since then founder Hugh Osmond and his team have opened clubs in Henley-on-Thames, Streatley-on-Thames, Maidenhead, Brighton and Tower Bridge in London. Cobham will be the seventh opening.
“When we first opened Coppa five years ago we wanted to create a space that combined all the best elements of a café, bar, restaurant and lounge into one offering that provided something for everyone - a private members club experience, without the membership fees, with an informal, relaxed feel - that ethos has never left us,” explains Hugh.
