A prison-themed cocktail bar ‘Alcotraz’ is coming to London

Now here’s something a little different…

London’s first prison cocktail bar is rocking up on Brick Lane in Shoreditch. The three month pop up will create an immersive experience inspired by the famous US prison, Alcatraz.

Makers are promising to ‘replicate the eerie atmosphere and mystery associated with prison life.’, so we’re not sure how enjoyable it’s going to be.

Per session there’s room for 30 inmates who will all get an orange jump suit and number. Charming.

You also need to bring your own booze – but don’t worry, a prison mixologist will be on hand to help you create the perfect cocktail, and we’re hoping they’re better than prison toilet wine!

Visit Alcotraz Penitentiary at 212 Brick Lane, E1 6RL, open from September 28th until December 17th with tickets £30.

You bring the rum, I'll bring the raspberries. Perfect daiquiris all round.
