It was a close race this year, but the Safe House has stolen Water Street's top bar cred from longstanding champ Trinity Three Irish Pubs.
This not-so-secret Milwaukee watering hole has been serving cold beer, strong mixers and clandestine concoctions like the famous Spy's Demise in its tucked-away corner off Front Street for generations. Situated just off Water Street, the Safe House has welcomed friendly agents from all corners of the world, including a number of famous faces – many of whom graciously left celebrity mementos.
Trinity put up a good fight, but OnMilwaukee.com readers clearly love an undercover underdog. If you think this will loosen the lips of the "International Exports, Ltd." staff, though – nice try.
