Rooftop bar and lounge overlooking River Thames

Welcome to 12th Knot. Formerly under the guise of Rumpus Room, this is our rooftop bar and lounge in London. Stylish seating, cocktails celebrating seasonal ingredients, DJs and live music – all set against an unrivalled backdrop of the River Thames and London.

A true reflection of South Bank’s vibrant energy, expect bright, striking décor and an open-plan layout which puts the panoramic views centre stage. So whether you’re curled up on a window seat, relaxing on the balcony, mingling at the bar or on the dance floor, London’s breath-taking skyline is the main attraction.

Our dress code is smart/casual – so sportswear or flip-flops are a no no. Walk-ins are welcomed on a first come first serve basis (subject to availability). We also have an over 21 age policy and proof of identity may be requested.

Reservations may be made for parties up to 8, for larger groups please contact [email protected].

Please note that 12th Knot will be closed for a private event on Tuesday 10 December, Wednesday 11 December and Thursday 12 December. However, don’t lose your ship – you can still enjoy a cocktail or two in Lyaness and Sea Containers Restaurant.


Rose on the Rooftop 12th Knot

Rosé on the Rooftop

Inspired by the arctic lights, we’re lighting up pink this winter. Follow the light over Blackfriars Bridge and along the Thames towards 12th Knot, where the rooftop has transformed into a cosy arctic winter terrace with Champagne Laurent-Perrier. Expect twinkling lights, splashes of pink and a true wintery feel. And no terrace is complete without drinks so expect Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé along with a selection of cocktails. The night has never been so pink.

Festive Fun

With all things merry and bright, celebrating in 12th Knot during the festive season is a must. Located on floor 12 and offering unparalleled views of London’s skyline, no two nights are the same. Each Wednesday sees live music, and Thursday, Friday and Saturday hosts some of London’s best DJS. Cheers to Christmas!
