There aren’t many hotels in London that have two bars that both get our juices flowing, let alone two bars with stunning riverside views to boot.

Sea Containers London, however, is just so bestowed – with the boundary-pushing Lyaness as well as the rooftop bar and lounge 12th Knot.


Lyaness is building on an impressive foundation: its former incarnation, Dandelyan, was named top dog at The World’s 50 Best Bars 2018 awards. In the same spirit, Lyaness is a cocktail bar that goes beyond the simple focus of what’s in your glass. Team Lyan has always had a curiosity for finding new ingredients, and an ability to make these unusual, often weird forms taste delicious.

With different spaces to accommodate private settings through to bigger social occasions, the space has been created by renowned interior designer Jacu Strauss and the Lore Design Team. Featuring a signature electric blue, as well as the original green marble bar, arrive early for a cocktail-based Fancy Tea, and stay late into the night to enjoy resident DJs over the weekend playing an eclectic mix of rock, funk and disco.

12th Knot

Situated 12 floors above, 12th Knot is Sea Containers London’s vibrant rooftop bar and lounge. Formerly known as Rumpus Room, it still enjoys the same winning combination of stylish seating, cocktails celebrating seasonal ingredients, DJs and live music – all set against an unrivalled backdrop of the Thames.

A true reflection of the 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 strutting on the dance floor, London’s skyline is the main attraction.

Naturally Lyaness or 12th Knot will be all the more sweet with £100 behind the bar for drinks and nibbles...
