About
Inspired by Hollywood Movies and TV that have brought to life infamous prison stories, Alcotraz is London's first immersive theatrical cocktail bar. When convicted to Alcotraz, guests, or more appropriately, inmates, are taken into an exciting world of mischief as you smuggle-in liquor to be used to make delicious, bespoke cocktails. You won’t find a set menu of drinks here…after all, it is prison! Our working inmates of Alcotraz create a range of tailored cocktails every night based on the liquor you bring and your tastes. Just make sure the Warden doesn’t catch you... Luckily, our Guards are on your side and have creative ways of hiding contraband.

Wouldn’t return
Jun. 2021 • Friends
We arrived 10 minutes before our allotted time slot in the torrential rain on Sunday and assumed we would be able to wait inside until it was time to start. Unfortunately we were told we couldn’t as they were cleaning from the last group which I understand but to not have somewhere to wait in that weather was awful and we ended up having to stand in a bagel shop on the other side of the road (and bought a couple drinks from there as we felt bad to just be standing in there). I think in the UK when we often have rain there should be either a waiting area or at least a sheltered queue - after waiting in the bagel shop until our time slot we then had to stand and queue again outside for 10 minutes in the rain! The actual experience was okay but I feel like once you’ve taken a couple of pictures in your jumpsuits and had a drink there isn’t much else to do. There was an occasional skit between actors (prisoner and guards) & 2 of us got ‘taken away’ downstairs for a few minutes to have a shot but there wasn’t actually anything to do. It was a shame only 2 out of 4 of us got the opportunity for a shot as well. The drinks were really nice and we did get back the remaining vodka we had leftover. I would recommend it to others as it’s a good one off experience but I would not personally return.

Best experience ever!
Jun. 2021 • Couples
Oh my goodness the BEST experience ever! Will recommend to everyone and everyone!! From start to finish the actors/staff were friendly, in character, and accommodating. This is the best idea I’ve ever come across and me and my boyfriend loved every second! I think we were the only couple who somehow drank an entire bottle of vodka, so left with nothing! 😂 worth every penny and more! The outfits, the decor, the photos, everything was amazing! Thank you!

Great experience, quite fun, amazing mixologists
Jul. 2021
This is a great little place, and we had been planning for weeks on how we were going to smuggle our booze in (website: "Be as creative as you can with your attempts to smuggle-in liquor"). In the end we opted for miniature bottles of Gin and Rum, carefully hidden around our person. However, it was a bit deflating as we were asked by the guard to give them the booze which they then put into cushions or boxes disguised as the Bible.. so all the plans to smuggle booze in creatively was for nothing. It is an immersive experience as you are surounded by prison staff. It isnt as interactive as they could be, or as interactive as I was expecting - I think there is potential to be more creative on what they do. The mixologists were amazong and each drink they made was unique and extra-ordinarily delicious!

Great fun and brilliant actors
Jul. 2021
What a funny brilliant experience we had. the actors were just fantastic they really did make our visit memorable. The barman were also great really attentive listened to our requests and made some fab cocktails.

This is definitely something to do with a group of friends or family rather than a couple as think you will get more out of it.

Really recommend doing this though

Great staff playing their characters well.

We had this immersive experience booked last year but had to cancel due to Covid, however we finally made it!! A thoroughly enjoyable experience right from the start. Li'l red is out front to greet you and explain how it all works. Cassidy, Wilmot and Warden Johnson were all great characters. A massive shout out to the guys making the drinks, amazing cocktails guys, thank you! What a great idea for an hour and half. Loved it and laughed so much. Loved the cells and orange prison jump suits. Fantastic experience, can't recommend it highly enough!

Best Cocktail Experience
Jun. 2021 • Couples
My partner booked this experience for my birthday and I was honestly blown away! Straight from the off, all the staff were in character, asking questions and getting you to interact and follow the story. The staff were all so friendly and really helped make the experience a very enjoyable one! The cocktails were next level, a massive shout-out to ‘Lil-Jim’ for the amazing drinks and the other lads behind the bar for their brilliant service throughout the evening. I really can’t explain how nice the cocktails were, seriously want to return for them, give the lads a big payrise 😂

Thank you to the staff for the great evening, would definitely recommend 🥳

Such a laugh and VERY good drinks….
Jun. 2021 • Friends
We have had these tickets for SO long and only just was able to make it to be honest we were worried COVID would impact how good it was and didn’t really know what to expect but OMG it was brilliant. The drinks were DELICIOUS - particularly the raspberry daiquiri (if you took vodka). The staff were really friendly, cheeky and fun, never breaking character but in a fun and silly way rather than an awkward way. Really would recommend this if you want to do something that’s a bit different. Thanks Alcotraz for having us we had a brilliant time and would definitely come back!!

Excellent experience and absolutely hilarious!!!
Jul. 2021
During the Covid-19 pandemic, the mood has felt a little low, down and all of those things. However, my wife found this and we booked it with friends.

I had no idea what to expect but it was brilliant! The actors were excellent and it is almost theatrical whilst they pour you drinks disguised as chicken soup...and you get drunk!!!

My face hurt with laughing so much at the end and I would highly recommend this to anyone thinking of doing it to simply do it. You won't be disappointed!!!
