Rooftop bar and terrace overlooking River Thames

Welcome to 12th Knot, our rooftop bar and terrace in London. Stylish seating, a curated list of wines, cocktails celebrating seasonal ingredients – 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 London’s breath-taking 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].
