"Bar Month" at OnMilwaukee is back for another round, brought to you by Great Northern Distilling: grain to glass spirits, handmade in Wisconsin. The whole month of March, we're serving up intoxicatingly fun articles on bars and clubs – including guides, the latest trends, bar reviews, the results of our Best of Bars readers poll and more. Grab a designated driver and dive in!
It may have a new revamped look, but the love OnMilwaukee readers' have for Safe House is still the same. For the eighth straight year, the secretive Downtown spy haven came away with the title of Milwaukee's best theme bar.
Safe House continues to be a hit with tourists and Milwaukeeans who enjoy having some fun right when you walk in the door – especially if you have friends who don't know the password to get in – and then being immersed in a world full of spy-themed surprises, from hidden walls, narrow staircases and décor that always has you finding something new, no matter how many times you've looked at it. And now after its recent refreshment, there's even more secrets to uncover.
And no, we won't tell you the password.
Camp Bar made things close, coming in a tight second place, while Old German Beer Hall – the OnMilwaukee editors' pick – 42 Lounge and Bryant's filled out the rest of the top five. However, knocking Safe House off the top of the podium remains a mission: impossible.
