WAUKESHA - Only nine months after opening, Chappie’s on Broadway - which specialized in Belgian beers and food - has closed for good.

Owner Shane Valenti, who also owns Lakeside Supper Club in Oconomowoc, and co-owner Brad Bella opened the restaurant at 257 W. Broadway last May, and during the summer months they opened a street-side patio with seemingly great success, especially during Friday Night Live in downtown Waukesha.

Valenti didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment, but “for lease” signs have already gone up in the windows at Chappie’s.

The Crest, an Irish pub that was known for its complementary chicken wing bar during Packers games, previously leased the building that’s owned by Berg Property Management.

The Crest was open for less than a year when it closed for the winter and in April 2017 announced it wouldn’t be reopening.

Rosie Strauss, commercial property manager at Berg Management, could not comment on why the restaurants both closed so quickly, but said there are already other groups interested in leasing the space.
