Inmates, it’s time to do the Cell Block Tango, because this famous Alcotraz cocktail experience is finally coming to Liverpool. Known as the ‘bar behind bars’, the new venue marks the notorious bar’s second escapade up North, following the success of their bars in Manchester, London and Brighton.
Tasking guests – or, should I say, ‘inmates’ – to smuggle liquor past the Warden and get it into the hands of some of Alcotraz’s longest-serving inmates, guests will be able to channel their inner Piper Chapman (or Michael Scofield – whatever floats your boat!), before having their ‘contraband’ transformed into tasty cocktails to enjoy in their very own cell.
A theatrical experience like no other in Liverpool, Alcotraz houses up to 50 inmates across ten individual cells ranging in size so it’s perfect for couples as well as larger groups. Unlocking its doors on Seel Street this March, the unique experience promises “world-class cocktails” and even your very own orange jumpsuit, with fun nods to the prison theme including liquor smuggled inside cooking appliances and cocktails served in discrete containers.
What’s more, Alcotraz: Cell Block Three-Six will uniquely expand on the immersive storyline with the introduction of a Visitation Area, Laundry Room and Warden’s Office. Guests who get the guards on their sides will unlock the opportunity to explore these unseen areas.
Sam Shearman, creator of Alcotraz and founder of Inventive Productions says: “We are so excited to be launching the next Alcotraz experience in Liverpool this March. 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. This new Liverpool site will see us experiment with really ambitious expansions to our unique storyline.”
