The London skyline is without doubt one of the most impressive in the world. A dramatic ballet of historic grandeur and modern architectural wonderment. Reclining on stylish chairs, cocktails in hand, we gazed through the tall windows at 12th Knot and marvelled at the beauty of the city we call home. This rooftop bar located on the 12th floor of Sea Containers London offers one of the better views we’ve seen in a while. Its South Bank position delivers wonderful vistas of the London Eye, St Paul’s and down the Thames to the Shard and Canary Wharf. A real spectacle as the sun sets. There’s even an outdoor terrace for a closer view of this magnificent cityscape in fine weather.

In keeping with the beautiful scenery, 12th Knot boasts pleasingly chic décor. Plush rugs gather around nests of stylish furniture, with notes of gold, dark glass and strikingly coloured upholstery to create a luxurious modern feel. On our visit, the room was set for cocktails, buzzing with atmosphere and pleasingly full. We’d suggest booking in advance to secure a table. 12th Knot can also be reconfigured for a variety of private event bookings. The room has space for 300 standing guests or 96 seated and can be set up for private dining, presentations, office parties and cocktail receptions.

Our visit to 12th Knot was more pleasure than business, and there’s little more pleasurable than cocktails with a view. We sampled a few tasty beverages from their unique menu. Favourites for us included the Grey Goose based and aptly named Big Ben, plus the picture perfect and striking Senor Green Thumb, a blend of Olmeca, Midori, Chartreuse, Agave and egg white. The service was even better than the cocktails. Our host was funny, charismatic and helpful, fixing us with a fine table and letting us relocate to get an even better view. Our waitress was one of the sweetest, happiest, most endearing people ever to have served us. The people at 12th Knot clearly enjoy themselves and you will too.

This wonderful rooftop bar has so much to offer. Whether you’re looking for a memorable summer party spot, a presentation room with a difference, a stylish space for corporate drinks or a party venue which exudes personality, 12th Knot has tons of venue potential.
