Rooftop bar and terrace overlooking River Thames

Welcome to 12th Knot, our vibrant rooftop bar and terrace in London. Stylish seating, a curated list of wines, and cocktails celebrating seasonal ingredients – all set against an unrivaled backdrop of the River Thames and St Pauls.

A true reflection of South Bank’s energy, expect bright, striking décor and an open-plan layout that puts London’s breathtaking skyline at centre stage. And what’s more, the terrace offers striking views of the world’s longest public art commission, Illuminated River.

Our dress code is smart/casual – so sportswear or flip-flops are a no-no. The space gets busy so we recommend booking in advance, but we will accommodate walk-ins where possible.

Please note that we have an over 18 age policy and proof of identity may be requested. Reservations may be made online for parties up to 7, for larger group bookings please contact [email protected].


12th Knot Rooftop Disco Summer Closing Party with Siggy Smalls

We’re super excited (and a little sad!) to announce our last Rooftop Disco of the summer with disco queens, Siggy Smalls & Faro.

When she isn’t in front of the camera Siggy is DJ’ing at some of London’s hottest bars and warehouses. From spinning tunes in the Rainforests of Costa Rica to the Burning Man in the Nevada Dessert, Siggy is always guaranteed to bring the vibes. Alongside Siggy, we’re joined by London-based Katie Faro. Katie has burst on the scene the past couple of years, bringing her soulful sounds to residencies up and down the country, she’s one to watch out for!
