Londoners are dining in festive igloos by the Thames that have blankets and a waiter button

London restaurant Coppa Club has launched its festive dining igloos by the Thames for the second year, but this time they’re slightly different.

Last year’s igloos were bought online for £650 each, but they proved quite difficult to operate, so Coppa Club decided to make their own.

The new versions are made from timber beams and perspex and have sliding doors.

They are heated to keep guests warm. There’s also blankets to snuggle in and a button to call a waiter to the igloo.

As soon as the igloos launched, the restaurant was overwhelmed by customers trying to get a spot. They had to hire 10 extra staff to cope with demand.

The igloos are fully booked until mid-January 2018, but three of them are available for walk-ins.
