Rooftop DJ bar & terrace overlooking the River Thames and City skyline

Welcome to 12th Knot, our vibrant rooftop bar and terrace at the top of the iconic Sea Containers 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 Paul’s Cathedral.

A true reflection of the South Bank’s energy, 12th Knot showcases striking modern décor and an open-plan layout that puts London’s breathtaking skyline centre stage.

A memorable setting for date nights and group bookings, DJs play at 12th Knot every Friday and Saturday night until late. Expect an eclectic mix of house, R&B, and current gems.  Keep an eye on What’s On for our weekly DJ listings.

12th Knot dress code is smart/casual – so sportswear or flip-flops are a no-no. The bar 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 of 8+ guests please get in touch via [email protected].
