12th Knot Found on the top floor of Sea Containers London the 12th Knot is the crowning glory of the glamorous riverside hotel. A place to see and be seen, the bar is a lively venue on special occasions, hosting late-night parties for Halloween and Bonfire Night with spectacular views of London's skyline. Sup on champagne and cocktails while you take in the views - both of the river and the pretty young things are sure to be found propping up the bar. Drinks maybe above average price wise but they are worth it - both for the quality of the cocktails made by mixologists who know their stuff and the view... you'll get a window seat overlooking St Paul's. Friday nights get very busy and you'll only get a seat if you're lucky as all tables get fully booked. If you prefer not to stand, plan ahead and make a reservation.
