Fancy drinking cocktails from a prison cell? Yeah, you heard right - that's what you'll be doing if you decide to pay London's latest pop-up bar a visit. Book a ticket to Alcotraz, grab your partner in crime and become an inmate for the evening, where you'll have to smuggle a bottle of your fave booze past the wardens of the jail before entering.
Once you sneak past security, you'll then be led to a secret bar, where mixologists will rustle you up some killer cocktails using your liquor. The immersive evening will begin by you putting on an orange jumpsuit, before being given an inmate number and shown to your cell. Tickets are £30, but make sure you remember to bring your contraband on the night...
Stock up on your beauty bargains and help a good cause with Unilever and Boots, who will donate 4p of every Vaseline, Dove, Simple, Lynx and Impulse product sold instore or online to the WE Schools charity.
