Prison-themed immersive cocktail experience, Alcotraz, is now open in Liverpool

Inspired by TV and Film that have brought to life infamous prison stories, Alcotraz is an immersive one-of-a-kind cocktail experience and it’s now open in Liverpool.

Alcotraz is the notorious bar behind bars, where guests – or more appropriately ‘inmates’ – are tasked with smuggling liquor past the Warden and getting it into the hands of some of Alcotraz’s longest-serving inmates, who then transform the contraband liquor into delicious cocktails.

Combining world-class cocktails with a theatrical storyline, Alcotraz is a unique drinking experience where the guests become part of the story. Encountering a cast of actors who bring to life the detailed and intricate storyline whilst guests ‘serve their time’, Alcotraz has firmly established itself as a leading alternative-night out in London.

Alcotraz: Cell Block Three-Six, has now unlocked its doors in Liverpool and welcomes inmates looking for a unique immersive theatrical experience and world-class cocktails.

Located in the heart of the city, this latest penitentiary from Alcotraz takes things to the next level. Comprising of a dramatic cell block of 10 individual cells, Alcotraz Liverpool can accommodate 50 inmates for public experiences or private venue hire perfect for birthdays, stags, hens and Christmas parties.

Alcotraz: Cell Block Three-Six also uniquely expands on the immersive storyline with the introduction of a Laundry Room, the perfect location for liquor to be covertly smuggled into the prison. In addition, certain inmates will get the opportunity for a Parole Hearing in the exclusive Warden’s Office. Guests who get the Guards on their sides will unlock the opportunity to explore these unseen area and experience even more of the story.

The experience begins as soon as guests purchase a ticket. In advance of visiting, guests will be able to create their own unique Criminal Record from the Department of Justice before being secretly instructed by bootleggers on the inside to smuggle their liquor into Alcotraz.

Smuggling their spirit past The Warden, inmates are led into Alcotraz Penitentiary and given their own unique inmate number and orange jumpsuit to wear for the duration of their sentencing to avoid escape. Once in their cells, they will encounter a cast of shady characters and the jail’s notorious bootlegging gang who are ready to transform illicit liquor into bespoke, delicious, contemporary and classic cocktails. The prison canteen system makes for the perfect disguise of hiding contraband in this Cell Block. Expect to see your smuggled liquor hidden inside cooking appliances and your cocktails served in discrete containers to avoid suspicions from The Warden.

The experience, created by Inventive Productions, first opened in London in 2017, generating global headlines, creating controversy and thrilling audiences looking for a unique and memorable night out.

Like other Inventive Productions shows, such as the Wild West inspired ‘Moonshine Saloon’ and the nautical adventure of ‘Pirates of The Hidden Spirit’, Alcotraz brings to life a fictional world. With subtle references to cult American entertainment, such as, Prison Break, Orange is the New Black and Shawshank Redemption guests have the    opportunity to experience a fictitious narrative unfold around them which they would only normally see on TV or cinema screens.

Sam Shearman, creator of Alcotraz and founder of Inventive Productions says: “We are so excited to be opening Alcotraz Liverpool, especially after such a great response to Alcotraz Manchester last year and the continued support for the experiences in London and Brighton. We’re thrilled to be able to grow the Alcotraz brand further and the new Liverpool site sees us experiment with really ambitious expansions to our unique storyline.”
