Immersive Theatrical Cocktail Experience


SHAWSHANKD is New York City’s most unique, immersive, theatrical, cocktail experience. Hidden in broad daylight somewhere in Midtown East, Manhattan lies ShawshankD. Upon booking, inmates will be provided with a secret code. Once you use the code correctly you will then be escorted into an exciting immersive show where Whitey and Red are hatching a plan to escape and they need your help.

Be careful however! Warden Tyler Tass (better known as TightAss) won’t be happy catching you hatching plans with “the Irish” or drinking contraband for that matter!! Inspired by Hollywood movies and drama series SHAWSHANKD is an experience like no other. Remember only Rita has the answer!


Successfully break the code and serve your time on the inside.

Once inside, seek out Red and hook yourself up with a covert supply of personalised cocktails.

Find Whitey, he needs your help with the escape plan and at all times avoid the crooked guards!! Become part of the story and fully immersed in an interactive show inspired by Hollywood movies.
Murphy is one of the prison guards thas is on your side, stay in with Murphy. Percy another prison guard on the other hand , not so accommodating. Grab your regulation jumpsuit and join gen pop. This is where you might bump into Whitey who has all the guards on the take. He runs a tight operation and is looking for your help on a grand plan to escape.
After your induction with Warden Tyler Tass, you will be brought to your cell. Depending on the size of your gang you will be placed accordingly. Cells take up 6 inmates and we can combine cells for larger parties serving time. The average sentence will last one hour and thirty minutes.
Look out for Red one of the inmates, he is the resident bootlegger and the one you need on side to get your hands on contraband (Cocktails..shhhh). Sneak the cigarettes provided past the Warden and use them as barter to get your hands on the good stuff. Red and his gang has an impressive list of bootlegged cocktails to trade so he’s one to look out for.
The infamous insta moment when the warden is beginning to become suspicious of an escape plan being hatched. This is taken when the inmates are brought to the Wardens.


Barter with Whiteys cigarettes to get one of the best cocktails in New York, will you pull the short straw and get a long stretch?
