Safe House, Milwaukee
If Archer owned a bar, it would likely look something like the Safe House. Officially known as International Exports Ltd, you’ll need a password to get in, but you can get around it by performing an amusing and/or humiliating task for the doorman.
Is the Safe House gimmicky? Absolutely. All its drinks are named something spy-related, and the décor is right out of a cheap film noir set. But its dismissal of irony in favor of unabashed enthusiasm for everything spy-related is refreshing — as are the drinks, which are, by the way, cheaper than your average bar. First drink is $7, refills are $2.50, and you get to keep the glass.
What to order: A martini. But in order to avoid being a stereotype, surprise your bartender by ordering it stirred, not shaken.Back to top
