Alcotraz Shoreditch: Cell Block Two One Two
Time Out says
A Brick Lane bar that will lock you up with booze but probably not throw away the key.
Inspired by Hollywood Movies and TV that have brought to life prison stories, Alcotraz is the worlds first prison-themed cocktail bar and London's first immersive theatrical cocktail bar.
From the orange jumpsuits upon entrance, to the real metallic cells, Alcotraz becomes the perfect backdrop to enjoy a drink within an epic yet intimate environment.
You won’t find a set menu of drinks here...after all, it is prison! Alcotraz creates a range of tailored cocktails every night based on the liquor you bring and your tastes. Just make sure you the Warden doesn’t catch you. Luckily, the Guards have creative ways of hiding contraband.

I would give this attraction no stars if possible, after I was aggressively pushed by one of the actors at the end of the night when trying to retrieve my coat.
I made a formal complaint and after over 7 days I still have not received a response from the manager.
The actors clearly have no boundaries with how far they will take the experience. Customers should not pay to be physically abused and there is no excuse for this, whether in character or not.
Avoid this experience at all costs.
We visited Alcotraz over Halloween and had the best time! The cocktails were amazing and made to exactly our taste. The actors are fun and really talented. They created a great story line and did not break character. The jumpsuits, props and quality of the production cannot be faulted and the place looks fantastic. Thanks so much for having us. I'd urge anyone who can to experience this bar. If you ask me it's a bargain for the price!
We had a really brilliant time at Alcotraz last weekend. Great themed bar. Delicious cocktails, and guards and warden were so much fun and interacted with all the 'inmates'. We had such a good time and highly recommend it for couples and groups. We will definitely return.
This is the first immersive cocktail bar I have ever been to or in fact heard of and it has been done amazingly! The detail is incredible, the actors are brilliant and the cocktails are fantastic. Being a BYOB means you don't have any hassle with menus and means you can enjoy your company and the amazing setting and theatre around you.
I feel £30 for 4 delicious cocktails is actually really good value in London and that's not even taking the immersive theatre into consideration.
I would highly recommend for a date night or night with friends.
