Friday through Sunday, SafeHouse seats guests on a first-spy, first-serve basis, and everyone in your group must be present to be seated. Parties of 12 or more spies will have to be split into smaller tables and may not be served at the same time. However, if you are in need of a semi private party for nest of spies (12 or more in your group) you can book in advance. All semi private parties are required to have minimums and provide a guarantee to ensure semi private space. If you are looking to book a semi private party for a nest of 12 or more spies (again, minimums and guarantees will apply), please contact Agent Kerry Doyne at (414) 298-3147 and she can brief you on further details.

How do I book a party?

To book a semi private space, please contact Agent Kerry Doyne at (414) 298-3147. Just remember, parties must include 12 or more spies, and all private events will require a deposit as well as a spending minimum.

Why do you require everyone from my party to be present before being seated?

SafeHouse is a popular hideout and we have a wait on most weekends. We need to be fair to all operatives waiting for a table.

Do you offer something special to celebrate an agent's birthday, bachelor/ette party or other milestone event?

We offer a special interrogation for those wishing to celebrate a fellow operative's milestone. This interrogation requires an additional clearance fee and must be reserved in advance. Please visit our Groups and Parties page for more information.

Where can I park?

There are numerous parking lots and structures surrounding SafeHouse.

Can I bring my kids/grandkids to SafeHouse?

Of course! Junior spies are more than welcome to explore SafeHouse during the daytime hours. After 8pm you must be 21 to enter. If you're 18, you need to be accompanied by a parent/guardian, and proof of relations must be shown prior to entrance.

Is there a cover charge to enter SafeHouse?

We do charge a small clearance fee beginning at 8pm Wednesday through Saturday.

Will there be a wait?

SafeHouse is a hot spot hideout for secret agents on the weekend. We'll do our best to accommodate your needs, but you should expect a wait on Friday and Saturday nights. Don't worry, though, a wait a may be the perfect time to explore SafeHouse and discover spy secrets.

Do I need to know the password to get in?

Spies who know the password are allowed immediate access. If an agent doesn't know the password, they may be asked to complete a clearance test to prove they're a friendly spy. No friendly agent has ever been turned away.

What's the SafeHouse password?

Classified information like that won't come so easily. To learn such high priority intel, you'll need to find a trustworthy source.

Safehouse: A History Declassified


In an alleyway near the river, the unassuming entrance has been the doorway to safety for spies and special agents since 1966. Yes, the password is required to enter. No, we won’t reveal it. But, as soon as visiting operatives pass a fun and imaginative clearance test to prove they aren’t double agents, Control will grant access. Behind the hidden entrance is a world of global espionage and entertainment. ​On orders from Control, Station Chief Agent OH-OH-7 (aka David J. Baldwin) founded SafeHouse in 1966. His vision for this spy-themed hideaway was unique and full of historical references. SafeHouse became a local landmark and cultural icon for hungry spies. Agent OH-OH-7 and his Chief of Disinformation Agent Eliza have remained undercover for 50 years. Today, Agent BB (aka Greg Marcus) and his team of friendly Marcus Restaurant agents continue Agent OH-OH-7’s vision.

Wall of Berlin Artifact inside restaurant

In every sector of SafeHouse, authentic espionage artifacts mingle with pop culture references and spy paraphernalia. Celebrity spies in disguise often sneak into this watering hole and leave their mark without being traceable. One guest evaded the FBI (without authorization from Control, of course) by using the escape route. John Wayne may have donated a machine gun, and Austin Powers allegedly contributed his spy guitar. A Very Important Operative smuggled a piece of the Berlin Wall in when the barrier smashed to the ground decades ago. There are numerous other SafeHouse secrets scattered throughout that can only be experienced first hand. The spy sanctuary has something different to offer each visiting agent, as no two visits are the same. Just remember, a good spy never leaves the same way he/she came in. Only your souvenir will prove you were ever here! Read, memorize, chew and swallow this message.
