The company that operates County Clare, an Irish-themed boutique hotel and restaurant on Milwaukee's east side, has agreed to buy downtown Waukesha's Clarke Hotel.
Sheboygan-based Harp & Eagle Ltd. plans to operate the hotel as a property similar to County Clare, with the goal of reopening the hotel's restaurant and tavern by August, said Dennis Radtke, director of operations.
"Our company has been looking to open another location in the metropolitan Milwaukee area for some time," Radtke said Tuesday. "We're excited to be in Waukesha."
The purchase of the property should occur soon, said Radtke, who declined to provide the purchase price.
