MILWAUKEE -- The founder of a well-known Milwaukee bar and restaurant has died.
Safe House founder David Baldwin, 84, passed away Sunday, according to a post on the Safe House Facebook page.
"His creative genius and passion for creating bars and nightclubs combined with his love of spy-craft and the Cold War brought his dream to life in the form of the Safe House, which he shared with millions of visitors over nearly five decades," the Facebook post said.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Baldwin had just retired this summer.
In June 2015, Baldwin sold the Safe House to the Milwaukee-based Marcus Corporation.
