12th Knot is our rooftop bar located on the 12th floor of Sea Containers London. The nearest station is Blackfriars which is an 8 minute walk away and Waterloo station is a 10 minute walk away.

Welcome to 12th Knot. Formerly under the guise of Rumpus Room, this is our rooftop bar and lounge. 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

Please note 12th Knot will be open from 10pm on Thursday 30th May.

The bar will be closed on Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th June for private events, Sea Containers Restaurant and Lyaness will be open as normal.
