The Fort Lauderdale nightclub used in the filming of 2012 box office flop “Rock of Ages” was one of six properties acquired by major Chicago-based investors Greg Berkowitz and Louis Wolf.

Berkowitz and Wolf picked up the 14,778-square-foot Revolution Live at 100 Southwest Third Avenue as part of a $9.1 million transaction recorded on Thursday. “Rock of Ages” director Adam Shankmanto filmed numerous scenes at the venue, which frequently hosts concerts.

The transaction also included America’s Back Yard bar, nightclub Off the Hookah, the former Green Room speakeasy, the Poor House bar and two parking lots, according to the Daily Business Review. The Green Room was rebranded as the 1920s-themed Stache.

Jeff John, CEO of the company that runs Revolution Live, Stache and America’s Back Yard, told the Review the portfolio sale would not impact operations at the venues. [Daily Business Review]Eric Kalis
