Christmas Parties

Tis the season to get locked up…

Inspired by classic film and TV prison stories, Alcotraz is an experiential, theatrical Christmas party night, like no other.

"All our work force got involved and it was great to see everyone work together to fool the Warden and never snitch. It was an utterly hilarious event and we will all be back next year. Thanks to all the team!"

"We absolutely loved Alcotraz . The actors and the cocktails were superb. One of our drinks tasted like mince pies which was our favourite. "
Joanne TripAdvisor
"Nobody in our party knew what to expect when we entered Alcotraz, we would normally have our Christmas parties on a night out in Covent Garden or with a dinner. But this event looked too good to pass up! It was simply brilliant."

"Spend your Christmas parties in prison! You will not regret it, we even felt like a private dining room with the pizza we had. Just an unmissable experience. Book now!"

"We took selfies on Tower Bridge and thought that was the best group photo until we got on the prison block. The whole place is one big photo op. Can't recommend Alcotraz London enough and will be visiting other cities and locations."
