In addition to upgraded technology, the SafeHouse will reflect more modern touches and upgraded aesthetics more in line with the 21 st century. The design of the SafeHouse was led by award-winning design firm, The Gettys Group, and Agent Fudd, Paul Daurio, who designed the EscapeHouse. The décor will feature original espionage artifacts, including the flight deck from an authentic spy plane donated by the man who flew it in WWII, as well as a piece of the Berlin Wall secured from covert operatives. From the sleek Interpol Bar to the Spybrary, to the Seduction Lounge and the Interrogation Room, every aspect of the design has been tinkered, tailored, soldiered, and spied. Interactive elements such as a Gadget Bar featuring a nightly magician, and "futuristic" technology, fuse seamlessly in an action-packed atmosphere where food and signature drinks unite guests as they embark on their mission.Every spy needs to eat well. Under orders from Control, the SafeHouse culinary agents are always on the prowl, tracing the source of local ingredients and securing them from top suppliers. These ingredients are then smuggled into the SafeHouse and hand-assembled into fresh dishes by experienced chefs to spies who deserve local and authentic food. Honoring original favorites like the Fried C4 Cheese Curds and the hand-crafted M.O.A.B. (Mother of All Burgers), Agent Pickles (a.k.a. Head Culinary Agent David Hardy) is bulking up the menu for visiting spies, adding specialties including poutine and an array of savory entrees as well as healthy vegetarian and vegan items. "Today's consumers are increasingly seeking unique experiences, and the SafeHouse is a one-of-a-kind restaurant and bar that fills that niche," says Agent Blonde, Peggy Williams-Smith, Marcus Hotels & Resorts Senior Vice President. "Spies in the great city of Chicago were in need of a refuge and Control wanted to ensure there was a SafeHouse for them as well."
