"I had no idea I was going to a party, let alone a prison party! Everyone last one of our guests had good night. As surprise Birthday parties go, this was class. We were even allowed to order food and drink to the venue and were made cocktails we loved. Book it. It's one hell of a party."

"London bar hire but with jumpsuits! We book a lot of events as a company but we all loved this bar. Our guests were treated like they stepped into Groucho club by amazing staff with a private bars across both prisons in the building. They have really set the bar high."

"What a day and what a great venue! We came from Swingers west end crazy golf and Basement bar and finished the work retreat with Alcotraz, bar venues don't put nearly as much work into their set design as this place. It was a bar and a prison block and the perfect venue for all our 50 guests. We will be back for yearly corporate parties."
Paul Google
"I organised an event with Alcotraz in their event space and I was so impressed with the venues professionalism. It was amazing to have our own bar venue and complete bar hire across both cell blocks. I imagine this would also be great for corporate events too, not just private parties! You can go to many bars across London but it wont be like this. Thank you Alcotraz for treating our guests so well."
