Will Doc Magrogan’s take over The Shanachie?

The Shanachie, an Irish pub/music venue that opened in 2004 in the heart of Ambler, folded at the end of March.

Owners Ed Egan and Gerry Timlin told the local Patch that “personal issues” led them to shut down.

Chiropractor-turned-restaurateur Dave Magrogan, who has been on a development tear lately, confirms that he is in talks to take the space. But while the neighbors are speculating that he will install his bar concept Kildare’s, he is thinking about a Doc Magrogan’s Oyster House.

Ambler has its share of bars, including Bar 31, Finn McCool’s and KC’s Alley.

Magrogan is a few months from opening a Doc Magrogan’s at 3432 Sansom St., in the former La Terrasse . He also has a Harvest Seasonal Grill teed up for 40th and Walnut Streets.

Stay tuned.
