'Alcotraz' is set to be unveiled as "London's first prison cocktail bar," which takes inspiration from Alcatraz and encourages those who book their ticket to the immersive experience to smuggle in their own liquor.

For a fee of £30, ticketholders are given a "prison pack," which outfits them with an unmissable orange jumper, plus four cocktail drinks that may be consumed within "visiting hours"—or the duration of the event, which lasts an hour and 45 minutes.

Over the course of three months, the pop-up bar promises to "replicate the eerie atmosphere and mystery associated with prison life," all the while serving drinks to participants behind bars. As part of each session, 30 "inmates" will be accepted, providing an unforgettable drinking experience in the urban center.
