What they say:

Coppa Club Tower Bridge is famous in London thanks to its cute cabana-style hideaways on their outside terrace, and it looks like a beautiful and iconic part of Brighton is getting the same treatment. They plan to revitalise Brighton Square, converting three of the units into a 3600 sq ft, all-day bar and restaurant, with over 50 covers outside. But they plan to keep the al-fresco dining going all year, protecting guests from the elements with a wood and fabric covering 'piazza' with closable doors encompassing the square.

What we say:

Coppa Club are planning on updating the Square without losing its traditional charm by incorporating elements of the area into its design. The piazza, which will protect 50 covers, uses the Dolphin fountain as its centrepiece, and even funnels rainwater into its base once the weather inevitably takes a turn for the worse. But while this is all well-and-good, what about the food? Well, they’re a relaxed, all-day eatery, meaning you can pop in for some avocado on toast and a coffee in the morning, and stay until the evening, where you can grab a dish of their delicious European food – from small plates and sharing platters to large dishes of salads and grilled mains – along with a wine, beer or cocktail.
