A Milwaukee institution is making its way south.

Safehouse Chicago

Marcus Hotels & Resorts is putting the final touches on SafeHouse Chicago, a Windy City version of the Milwaukee spy-themed restaurant that has attracted tourists and locals alike for decades.

The restaurant will be located at 60 E. Ontario Street near the popular Rush Street.

And just like the Milwaukee venue, it won’t be easy to find. The entrance will be marked by a nameplate that reads "International Exports Ltd."

Once you get inside — if you know the password — the Chicago restaurant will also be filled with spy-themed decor designed to make the experience as interactive as possible.

The Chicago location is expected to open soon, but the exact date has not been determined — or being kept secret.
