      IMMERSIVE COCKTAIL EXPERIENCE
      Pioneering immersive cocktail experience will open a pop-up site in Covent Garden on Friday 4th October.
      Paying homage to cult TV shows like Orange is the New Black and Prison Break, Alcotraz has cemented itself as one of London’s leading alternative nights out.
      The infamous bar behind bars will open a new Cell Block in the heart of London’s West End in Covent Garden as a three month pop-up from Friday 4th October 2019.
      The pioneering immersive cocktail experience, created by Inventive Productions, opened in the capital’s Brick Lane in 2017, generating global headlines, creating controversy and thrilling audiences looking for a unique and memorable night out.
      The next chapter of the Alcotraz story takes the concept to new heights. Taking place underneath the footsteps of Covent Garden, Alcotraz Penitentiary: Cell Block Six Eight unlocks its doors and reveals a secret basement speakeasy. The stakes couldn’t be higher and covertness is paramount when guests attempt to smuggle liquor past The Warden and into the hands of some of Alcotraz’s longest-serving inmates who will then transform the contraband liquor into delicious cocktails.
      The experience begins as soon as a ticket has been purchased. Guests – or more appropriately inmates – are given their own Alcotraz processing number and instructions to bring their liquor and covertly meet the Crooked Guard at the corner of Shaftesbury Avenue and Neal Street. Don’t expect to swap pleasantries with the Crooked Guard, code words and knowing looks are what’s required to commence your journey down to the secret basement Cell Block Six Eight of Alcotraz Penitentiary.
      A clandestine game of cat and mouse, inmates attempt to smuggle their liquor into Alcotraz and out of reach of the long arm of the law, encountering a cast of actors as a theatrical storyline plays out in the Penitentiary. With orange prison jumpsuits on, inmates are led to their cells where they will encounter a cast of shady characters and the jails notorious bootlegging gang who are ready to transform illicit liquor into bespoke, delicious contemporary and classic cocktails. Shaking up a storm, inmates will be treated to some of the best cocktails London has to offer, prepared by the best bootleggers in the business.

      Alcotraz Cell Block Six Eight can accommodate 40 inmates at a time, and will be serving delicious cocktails behind bars using liquor that has been smuggled in past the guards – a knowing nod to the legendary stories that have been brought to life in many prison TV and film concepts.

      Combining world-class cocktails with a theatrical experience, Alcotraz has created a successful formula, helping fuel an audience demand for experiential nights out which shows no signs of slowing down.

      Alcotraz Penitentiary: Cell Block Six Eight is the fourth immersive cocktail experience from Inventive Productions. Other experiences include the Western-themed Moonshine Saloon and the piratical adventures of Pirates of the Hidden Spirit.

      Alcotraz Penitentiary: Cell Block Six Eight opens on Friday 4th October. Tickets cost £34.99 (including four cocktails from bought liquor) and are available to buy at www.alcotraz.co.uk.
