Suburban bar shuffling

Say farewell to the Paddock at Devon. Meanwhile, Bull Durham's near West Chester has a new tenant.

Suburban bar shuffling

Two suburban bars are changing hands.

Bull Durham's was opened in March 2010 in a former Bennigan's on Wilmington Pike in West Chester by a couple who wanted a place to indulge in their passion of country line dancing. In late November, they hit the wall. PJ Whelihan's will open in the spot in late April or early May.

The Paddock at Devon opened in the former John Harvard's in Stafford (Lancaster Avenue and Old Eagle School Road) in late 2008 by owners enamored of the Main Line horse country. Business was anything but stable, and it shut down two weeks ago. New owner will be Landmark Americana, a regional bar-restaurant.
