Serve your time
Once you’re in, you and your colleagues are taken into an exciting world of mischief as you join a notorious bootlegging gang on the inside and smuggle-in liquor to be used to make delicious, bespoke cocktails.
Your Mission, Should You Choose to Accept It
Your new line of business is to keep the Warden from finding out about the liquor smuggling operation whilst trying to create ways to conspire against them with the coolest person on the block, Inmate Cassidy.
The Guards are crooked
Our Guards on site sign you in, hand your team their jumpsuits then help your whole group smuggle in their contraband. Yes, that’s right. The Guards are crooked and just as ready to party as you!
Just watch out for the Warden
The only person in your way is the Warden, who is sniffing around the prison ready to catch anyone breaking the rules on contraband. It’s going to take organisation, communication and a winning team to create ideas, distractions and get ahead of the game. Could you be the next team to run the block? Alcotraz is the place to find out.
Team Building Activities and Work Socials
Whether you’re the boss or a valuable member of the team, Alcotraz is the perfect venue for a company full of fun loving criminals who like drinks with their team building activities.
Immersive Team Building Behind Bars
Inspired by Hollywood Film and TV that have brought to life popular prison stories, Alcotraz is a theatrical immersive experience of the highest kind, perfectly suited to teams that like to use their ideas and creativity to enhance the story and have great fun along the way. 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 event that’s perfect for small and large groups.
Featuring high spirits and plenty of hooch to go around the cell blocks, Alcotraz lets your company team 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?
When you visit Alcotraz, you step into a prison sentence as a convict whose crimes caught up with you.
Whilst your accomplices might expect more regular corporate events across London and our other cities, organising a stint in prison in the name of team building gives guests the chance to explore their imaginations, forget the office and develop a reputation as a hustler behind bars.
Whether you want to spend your sentence scheming against the Warden, or simply enjoy a drink in the clink. Alcotraz offers the perfect packages for you and your teammates with fun missions and personalised plot lines that completely incorporate you and your whole company into the story. Plus the alcohol you successfully smuggled inside will be served to you in delicious cocktails throughout.
Throughout, you and your colleagues will be interacted with by our amazing performers, catering the entire event to your team building and aiding in the bootlegging business around you.
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.
