You Can Party In A Jail Cell At Koreatown’s Bizarre Prison-Themed Bar

By Malia Wooten

Who ever thought that a visit to the slammer could be so fun! 👮‍♂️

If you’re running out of television shows surrounding the topic of incarceration, then create a story of your own at Koreatown’s Prizon Bar.

The interior is questionable unless feeling like you’re on lockdown is your kind of thing. The place is decked out with everything penitentiary related from cot-like tables, suspended handcuffs, metal fencing, blacklight murals, to an actual jail cell! If we were rating the ambiance on a scale from one to uncomfortable… let’s just say that it’s not the coziest of bars.

The menu is just as unexpected as its motif, written in Korean and translated into English. Serving dishes on a metal tray, faux jail-birds can dine on items like “animal-style” fries (secret menu) or bacon kimchi pasta.

Whether you’re in the mood for some questionable roll play or want to take a walk on the wild side for once, Prizon Bar will definitely land itself on your list of out-of-this-world hangout spots.

Don’t forget to smile in your mugshot!
