The Safe House Now Under New Ownership
The Iconic Establishment Now Owned by the Marcus Restaurant Group
The Safe House, the iconic spy-themed Milwaukee bar and restaurant, has been sold to the Marcus Restaurant Group as of today. The previous owners, Dave and Shuana Baldwin, have retired. They owned the restaurant for 49 years.
The restaurant opened in 1966 after the Cold War caused a wave of interest in spies and spy culture among Americans. It soon became a local favorite and a nationally known establishment even being featured on the Travel Channel.
