A Special Evening Setting

Nightmare on Princess Drive

Saturday, October 29 | 8 pm - 2 am | 21+

Discover the history and hauntings of The Plaza Bar prison this Halloween weekend. Only the most infamous, dangerous delinquents get sentenced to a place as wicked as this… so what was your crime? Rusted, razor-sharp barbed wire fences, creepy convicts, dilapidated cells, and corrupt prison guards all share the same goal: to keep you shackled and locked up on an island you’ll never escape. But not to fear! This state penitentiary does at least come with entertainment. Specialty cocktails (mug shot, anyone?), music spinning from a live DJ, and the ever-popular costume contest set the stage for a frighteningly unforgettable night behind bars. Event open to ages 21 and older, admission complimentary. Prospective prisoners can reserve a table and bottle service by calling 480.585.2694.
