“Spy Themed Hot Spot in Milwaukee!”

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, involves eating incredible edibles and taste-testing some delicious craft concoctions...spy style of course. If that sounds good to you, you'll probably be interested in pulling up a seat at The Safe House, Milwaukee’s badass spy-themed restaurant. It’s so authentic you need to know the password to even get inside.  The Safe House experience begins before you even enter the building, which by the way you’ll have to find, because they don’t have a sign. The restaurant and bar is tucked away in a rather inconspicuous looking alley in downtown Milwaukee, which adds to the mystery if you ask me. Once guests finally find their way to the door, they’re greeted by a fellow spy who ushers them inside quickly.  Here’s where you’ll need the password. If you don’t know it, that’s okay too because you’ll be put through a series of tests that range anywhere from waddling like a penguin, to singing, even hula dancing... it all depends on what amuses your greeter. "What good is a Safe House without a password? It depends on time of day. If you arrive at International Exports Ltd. before 8 p.m. chances are you won't be asked for the password. After 8 p.m. you are on your own. Hint . . . Control never turned away agents on the run because they didn't know the password." -Safe House Oh yeah, and everyone who’s already made it into the restaurant gets to watch you live on a television screen. Say cheese! You’ll know that you’ve passed the humiliation, I mean, test when a secret wall suddenly slides open to reveal the inner workings of… the restaurant! All of the delicious food and drink on the menu is, of course, spy-themed. Guests can sample James Bond inspired cocktails, while they binge out on phonebook sized burgers.   If you do have to go to the bathroom, prepare to partake in a confusing scavenger hunt of false doors, winding hallways, and stairs that lead to nowhere. The fun doesn’t end once you’ve paid the bill either, your last mission is to find your way out of the building. Once you make it down a darkened hallway, you have to use a mysterious payphone in order to get the exit password.  If you’re going to be in Milwaukee and are looking for not just an awesome place to eat, but a seriously fun atmosphere with a bit of an adventure,The Safe House is the perfect place! This message will self-destruct in 3…. 2… 1... -Roadtrippers Your Safe House in Milwaukee is a popular spy-theme restaurant and night spot that since 1966 has provided Crafty Concoctions and Incredible Edibles to hungry agents on R & R. It is secreted behind International Exports Ltd. on Front Street in Milwaukee. Nowhere will you find a sign advertising "Safe House". "Secret agents" find this spy-haven mostly by word-of-mouth. (Remember, you are sworn not to reveal the location!)

We were lucky enough to run into a group that already knew the password! It is a bit hidden but once you see the door down the alley, it's easy enough to get too. There are other ways to get into... Read more

A restaurant that rested on its laurels. It is time to say goodbye. In the early 2000s, Rachel Ray featured this restaurant in her "$40 a Day" show. My siblings and I visited and had a lot of... Read more
