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, trainers 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 is closed for a private event on Wednesday, 18 September and Thursday, 19 September. However, don’t lose your ship – you can still enjoy a cocktail or two at Lyaness and Sea Containers Restaurant.
