  Safe House Restaurant and Bar
by deecat

Nowhere is there a sign advertising "Safe House". It's hidden behind International Exports Ltd. on Front Street in Milwaukee. We found out about it by word of mouth.

It's like an old-fashioned Speakeasy. It is, indeed, one of a kind. It's easier to experience it than to tell about it Once you find it, you go through the Red Door beneath the gas lights. They'll ask for a pass word (they will let you in if you don't know it). I'm sworn not to tell it.

There are secret places and things everywhere. You'll enjoy the restrooms, the bar stools, the menu, the bartender, and the waiters/waitresses!

They offer Appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches and drinks with spy-appropriate names.

It's truly a "riot". If you have the opportunity, don't miss SAFE HOUSE in Milwaukee!

Dress Code: Dress in casual clothing unless you want to play along with the spy overcoat, hat, briefcase!

Have Fun...
