Police gave the man first aid until paramedics arrived, but the victim died at 2.37am.
Another man, aged in his 20s, was also found nearby suffering from stab injuries.
He was taken to hospital, though his condition is not thought to be life-threatening.
He has been arrested on suspicion of murder.
The attack happened in Welland Street, almost next to the historic Cutty Sark clipper, which attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists to the Thames’ riverfront every year.
It is also not far from the National Maritime Museum.
A spokesman for the Met Police said: “A crime scene is in place and enquiries into the circumstances are ongoing.”
Any witnesses or anyone who has information that could help police are urged to call 101.
It comes less than two months after a man was killed when men slashed at each other with giant blades in broad daylight in Greenwich.
