Stylish, great cocktails, DJs and live music - welcome to 12th Knot

Rooftop bar and lounge overlooking River Thames

Welcome to 12th Knot, this is our rooftop bar and lounge in London. Stylish seating, a curated list of wines, 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, or mingling at the bar, London’s breath-taking skyline is the main attraction. 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, especially on Friday and Saturday, so we recommend booking in advance, but we will try to fit walk-ins where possible.
Please note that we have an over 21 age policy and proof of identity may be requested. Reservations may be made for parties up to 10, for larger parties bookings please contact [email protected].
