Hidden UNDERNEATH THE FOOTSTEPS OF Covent Garden LIES ALCOTRAZ: CELL BLOCK SIX-EIGHT, A SECRET BASEMENT HOME TO A COVERT SPEAKEASY PRISON. successfully smuggle liquor past the Warden and get it into the hands of the longest-serving inmates to enjoy delicious cocktails for you and your gang. 

Inspired by Hollywood Movies and TV that have brought to life infamous prison stories, Alcotraz is a one of a kind immersive theatrical cocktail bar. At this brand new experience, the stakes are raised and covertness is paramount. 

Upon booking, convicted guests are instructed to meet their processing Guard, with their illegal liquor in hand, at a secret location in Covent Garden. The Guards are in on the secret so you'll need to use your allocated code word instructed by the gang on the inside to let them know you can be trusted! Under the strict instructions to avoid suspicions from The Warden, guests will be escorted to the unassuming door to the prison, where they will be led down to the secret basement. Discretion is paramount so listen to the instructions of your Guard!

From the orange jumpsuits upon entrance, to the real metallic cells, Alcotraz: Cell Block Six Eight becomes the perfect backdrop to enjoy a drink within an epic yet intimate environment. 

You won’t find a set menu of drinks here…after all, it is prison! The working inmates of Block Six Eight will be serving unique, personalised cocktails behind bars using the liquor that visiting convicts will have smuggled in and your personal tastes. As a new inmate you can expect to see your illegally smuggled liquor combined with liqueurs, bitters and homemade syrups to make bespoke, contemporary and classic cocktails perfect for your time behind bars. 

Be as creative and covert as you can with your attempts to smuggle-in liquor. Alternatively, the Guards are on your side who have their own system for hiding contraband...Just make sure the Warden doesn’t catch you. 

Clyde Cassidy, Inmate #1408 managed to get a letter from inside the prison to the outside world:

"Convict, I hope this letter finds you well. 

Prison life has its ups and downs but I have found a way to make it more bearable! Find a way to get a bottle of your favourite spirit into the joint and get it to me. Do not fear, having been America's Most Wanted liquor smuggler you learn to keep your enemies close. I've got the Guards on my side….it’s The Warden you need to look out for! 

The Guards have let me smuggle-in homemade syrups, juices and bitters from the outside, so if you can get your liquor inside, my gang will be sure to fix you something up that really tickles your fancy! 

More instructions will follow on your processing papers once you've booked!

I'll see y'all behind bars, 

Clyde Cassidy #Inmate 1408”

    Certainly a fun event - well organised and well presented. slightly disappointed with level of interaction with our group - or maybe we had read so many reviews we had created a greater expectation. All said worth a visit!

    Visited 3 days ago Written by Alcotraz: Cell Block Two-One-Two customer
    It was a fun time, the drinks were great and the entertainment good. The only issue was the size of the cell they put our group in. There were larger cells with fewer people in them so obviously someone wasn't paying attention and it was quite cramped. However, we made the best of it and enjoyed the evening.
