What does this experience involve?

This immersive experience consists of a 1 hour and 45 minutes cocktail session held behind bars at Alcotraz Liverpool… You’ll get to drink delicious cocktails while you are surrounded by actors who will break out into acting scenes at any moment!

It’s an intimate environment, to say the least, with actors who will interact with you and plunge you into the action. The crime of smuggling liquor behind bars has a hefty price to pay after all…

Listen to infamous prison stories while sitting in your individual prison cells and do your best to smuggle as much alcohol into the prison as you can! You’ll have other inmates and ‘crooked guards’ to help you with this task. Try not to crack under pressure when you are invited to the Warden’s Office for a discussion…

REMEMBER: YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN ALCOHOL TO THIS EXPERIENCE! More specifically base spirits such as Vodka, Gin, Rum, Tequila or Whisky.

The bootlegging gang (inside Alcotraz) will ‘*find* a 35cl bottle of spirit per two inmates or 70cl bottle per four somewhere inside Speakeasy Prison. It’s your task to get it past The Warden. If you coming in larger groups, make sure to bring as few variations of spirit as possible within the group this will mean you get to experiment with more cocktail recipes! Unopened bottles of alcohol are accepted, bottles that have already been opened aren’t.

The prison will provide extras like all bitters, purees, juices, syrups, liqueurs and other ingredients that go into making delicious cocktails. These extras are included in the entry price.

Working inmates will smuggle you approximately 4 rounds of cocktails for your gang within your time in the prison.

This experience starts from £33.99.
