    It's been called the best Honky Tonk this west of the Mississippi. Live Music --- check web site for schedule. You will encounter only one stop sign to get to Pappy and Harriets. Reservations strongly recommended. Closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays...though check website to confirm.

    Iconic high desert experience. Go for the burgers, salads, sandwiches. Go for the Mason jar margaritas. Go for the honkeytonk dancing and the worldclass music. Go to see locals and visitors get down together. Just go.

    It apparently used to be a pretty tough biker hangout, and they have some hardcore posters on the wall from bands they have hosted in the past. Now it is more of a touristy family joint with a deal deal BBQ outback. It has a laidback old wild west feel, with picnic tables outside for having more than a few beers and carrying on if you like. A nice place to stop for lunch on the LA to Palm Springs route. The mac and cheese is tasty.

    One of my all time favorite places on the planet also happens to be one of the few spots I know where I can roll in filthy, just off the trail, and still feel totally comfortable drinking a cold beer and hitting the dance floor. Not that I generally take that approach. But it's nice to know I could. Pappy and Harriet's is one of those places where you find yourself making new friends within minutes of arrival. People at the bar are neighborly that way. You might also find yourself offered two step lessons on the dance floor by an old man in baggy sweatpants and 80s style high top Reeboks (true story!). It's the land of the strange, where conservative valley diners, military kids straight off the base, rock climbers, campers, families, new-agey desert folks and artists of all kinds gather "in their element." And with an indoor and outdoor stage that actually attracts quality talent from across the country, there's often genuinely good music to be had as well. Many a touring band, with or without their hipster fan bases, opts to stop in the desert on their way in or out of Los Angeles. If you're lucky, you'll find your way here to join them.

    Good times just a few miles down the road at Pappy and Harriets! We love to sit outside under the Wisteria Vines and sip drinks on a hot day!

    Even though it was only made to look like an old wild west bar, Pappy and Harriet's definitely has that vibe going for it. It might have something to do with the mesquite BBQ smoking out back and the beer that is served in Ball jars. A popular stop for hungry tourists and thirsty bikers, Pappy and Harriet's is also THE place to catch some live music of the country and rock persuasions. It's worth checking out the music calendar if you plan on being in the area, but I reckon you should visit regardless.

Description

Pappy & Harriet's Pioneertown Palace is a rustic restaurant, bar, and music venue located in Pioneertown. Robyn Celia and Linda Krantz, two New Yorkers who fell in love with the original Pappy & Harriet's, wanted to see it returned to its glory days. They bought the club in 2003, and it has since become a hot spot for fun times and live music, featuring musicians from Robert Plant to Vampire Weekend, from Leon Russell to Sean Lennon.
