Inmates within Alcotraz must be convicted in advance with a pre-purchased ticket.
As part of the Alcotraz Experience, guests are required to bring their own liquor which you will smuggle into the Penitentiary. Please bring base spirits such as Vodka, Gin, Rum, Tequila or Whisky. The bootlegging gang inside Alcotraz have found that a 35cl bottle of spirit per two inmates or 70cl bottle per four is the easiest to get past The Warden. If coming in larger groups, please bring as few variations of spirit as possible within the group.
Alcotraz operates a closed bottle policy meaning we will not accept any bottles previously opened. Please only bring new, unopened and sealed bottles.
All bitters, purees, juices, syrups, liqueurs and other ingredients that go into making delicious cocktails are included within entry price so please simply bring your own choice of liquor.
There is no minimum group size. Each prison location is arranged differently with a selection of small and large Prison Cells. The smaller cells are designed for two guests and the larger cells are designed for up to six guests. If above six in a group we will do our best to seat your group in adjacent or opposite cells.
If attending in a small group of 2 or 3, we will do our best to ensure that you are kept separate from others and receive your own cell but on occasion this is not always possible and there is a chance that you may end up within the same cell as another couple or small group.
The Alcotraz Prison Cells vary in size and can hold between 2 to 6 inmates. If attending in a small group of 2 or 3, we will do our best to ensure that you are kept separate from others and receive your own cell but on occasion this is not always possible and there is a chance that you may end up within the same cell as another couple or small group.
*During COVID-19 we will be following the government advice with regards to group size and household restrictions. Please contact us to clarify these.*
Alcotraz is an immersive cocktail experience but is not scary. We have actors working inside the prison who help bring to life a fun, lighthearted experience for guests. If at any time guests do not act respectful and polite towards actors and the venue then they run the risk of their experience being cut short.
Unfortunately tickets for Alcotraz are non-refundable, however, it is possible to move your booking to another day if we are given 48 hours notice prior to your visit. In order to do this, please email [email protected]
In line with our refunds and exchange policy, if someone in your group tests positive for Covid-19 and you are required to isolate, it is possible to move your booking to another day as long as we are given 48 hours notice prior to your visit.

Unfortunately tickets for Alcotraz remain non-refundable in these circumstances.
