This Prison Themed Cocktail Bar Looks So Fun It Should Be Illegal
Forget sipping cocktails in bars, how about sipping pruno behind bars? There’s a new bar in town, and it’s prisoned themed. Yep, you read that right! Alcotraz opened its doors in London this past September, and oddly enough people have been jumping at the chance to get incarcerated ever since!
As expected, prisoners will be given some classy looking orange jumpers to change into upon their arrival. But what’s even more alluring than this is that the bar doesn’t have a drink menu. Why you ask? Well alcohol isn’t technically allowed in prison, which as we all know, leads the inmates to brew up some lovely wine in their toilets. That’s why you have to sneak yours in.

I hope this letter finds you well.
Prison life has its ups and downs but I have found a way to make it bearable!
Find a way to get a bottle of your favorite spirit into the joint and get it to me. The guards here have a reputation but they aren’t all that bad…it’s the warden you need to look out for!
The guards have let me keep my collection of homemade syrups, juices, and bitters from my previous life behind the bar, so if you can get your liquor to me I will be sure to fix you something up that really tickles your fancy!
You never know, you may not want to leave!

Rumor has it, the warden is very strict, and very intuitive when it comes to contraband, so you’ll have to be clever with that bottle of yours. If you manage to sneak it in (and we hear the prison guards may be keen to help) then you and your friends will be treated to a personal mixologist that will serve up some creative cocktails in your prison cell.
So if you feel like having a brush with your law, you better act fast. Tickets are only available for purchase online, and they’re going fast! Find out more about how to reserve your spot here.
