BROOKFIELD — An affiliate of Irgens, a real estate development firm, has acquired Brookfield’s Venice Club, according to state records.

The Venice Club, 1905 N. Calhoun Road, closed in early May. The Italian-American restaurant first opened in Milwaukee in 1947, and then moved to Brookfield in 1983. According to state records, the Irgens affiliate acquired the Venice Club from Pewaukee-based AMR Real Estate LLC in a sheriff’s deed on foreclosure action.

The value of the transaction was $900,000, the state records show.

Irgens, which specializes in commercial real estate, has offices in Milwaukee, Chicago and Phoenix.
