Safe House - Spy-Themed Club

A few years back someone told me about the Safe House in Milwaukee, and I only just made it there yesterday. I grew up in Colorado and have fond memories of Casa Bonita. I can only explain this restaurant as a spy-themed Casa Bonita. There is a secret entrance, you have to use a code word to go inside, and there is all sorts of hidden nooks and crannies, moving walls, and even an ejector seat.

James Bond 007's The Safehouse

A warning for all of the ladies - the ladies room off of the main bar has a picture of Burt Reynolds a la 1970s. There used to be a heart covering his genitalia (as he is reclining nude in the photo). Now all that remains is the metal plate that was under it, but, investigate and a siren goes off in the bar. Nobody really cares much anymore, but it is darn funny to some of us!

James Bond 007's The Safehouse

Just wanted to tell you about a unique little bar called The Safehouse as in James Bond 007's The Safehouse and that is the theme they use. You have to enter thru a phone booth. No kidding. It's in downtown Milwaukee, WI. You won't spot it though unless you've already been there because even the outside is incognito.

It's at 779 N. Front Street. Novelty drinks include the Incognito, Under Cover Girl, Rahab the Harlot, etc. Free Spy Glass. Reserve a dirty tricks session for your 'honored guest'. Also in Milwaukee (if it's still there): the Maze bar. You have to enter by walking through a maze. The patrons already in are above the maze, and can see you struggling.
