"We were really struggling for creative team building ideas that we hadn't already tried as a company having done everything from real detectives to a mobile escape room experience. Alcotraz truly surpassed all of it. I have nothing but great feedback for how well the actors worked with our groups and how lovely the cocktails were. Thank you for being a great host, Alcotraz!"

"Alcotraz was the perfect event and earns as many points as I can give it for being a brilliant show and great team building experience. we were entertained, had a great laugh and everyone was so professional, we didn't race to leave as we were having such a good time it could have gone on for another hour at least. Thanks for a top team night out, Manchester Alcotraz!"

"We went as quite a big Manchester team on an events in Manchester weekend. Escape Rooms, Casino tables and a few outdoor activities but nothing topped Alcotraz! It was the most amazing game we played and was most popular with our teams whilst not even being the most expensive event we did with our budget. We loved it!"

"So much fun! Our chosen location was Manchester city and we would gladly go back and do it again. It was one of our more adventurous team building ideas as we aren't big theatre goers. A game of Table football and pub Olympics are favourites so the drinking aspect of Alcotraz sold us. It was so much fun for all the teams involved and the perfect indoor activity if you like a good laugh."

"The last event on our agenda after a day of outdoor experiences was Alcotraz! And honestly I'd swap outdoor for indoor any day! The drinks kept coming and the show was brilliant and perfectly immersive. Sorry we arrived late! it was like herding cattle with so many of us, but it did lend it's self well to the running joke that we were serving time management! Thanks for the laughs Alcotraz!"

About Our Immersive Team Building Manchester Events

Alcotraz venues are more than just themed cocktail bars, they combine the very best of immersive theatre with a world-class cocktail experience and offer you a team building in Manchester that’s perfect for large group sizes and corporate events.

Featuring high spirits and plenty of hooch to go around the cell blocks, Alcotraz lets your company discover their prison alter-ego and challenges them to smuggle their alcohol past the Warden and into the hands of the cocktail making convicts in the kitchen. Be as creative as you can with your attempts to smuggle-in liquor.

What to Expect

Whilst your accomplices might expect more regular corporate events, organising a stint in our Manchester Alcotraz in the name of team building skills gives guests the chance to explore collaborating with work colleagues, complete challenges and get competitive while building a reputation as a hustler behind bars. Throughout the evening at Alcotraz you and your friends will be interacted with by our amazing performers helping you get the party started and catering the entire event to team building and aiding in the bootlegging business around you.

Whether you want to spend your sentence scheming against the Warden, or simply enjoy a cocktail in the clink. Alcotraz Manchester offers the perfect packages for you and your teammates with missions and personalised plot lines that completely incorporate you into the story.

So get ready to step-back in time inside an American prison and grab your colleagues for a work party you will be talking about for the rest of your 25 to life.
