In the title compound, C25H19ClN2O5S, the phenyl ring forms dihedral angles of 79.62 (12) and 80.02 (13)° with the indole ring system and the benzene ring, respectively. The nitro group is twisted at an angle of 22.39 (11)° with respect to the attached benzene ring. In the crystal, molecules assemble into double layers in the ab plane via C-HO interactions.
