Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace

In 1946, Hollywood investors established Pioneertown - an 1870s western town-style movie set situated 30 miles north of Palm Springs near Joshua Tree National Park - as a living cowboy film set where members of the public could visit and dine. Camera-ready facades such as saloons, jails and stables made this an accessible movie set where filming could continue during real time.

Once Western movies faded from prominence, the site quickly degenerated into a haven for outlaw biker gangs until Harriet Allen and her husband, Claude "Pappy" Allen opened Pappy + Harriet's Pioneertown Palace in 1982 to create more of a family atmosphere through family style Santa Maria barbeque, hearty comfort food offerings and live musical performances by Pappy, Harriet, Kristina Allen as well as live music from Kristina Allen (their granddaughter).

Today Pappy & Harriet's is beloved by music fans and musicians worldwide, making it an essential destination in the high desert. Over its history it has hosted such world-renowned acts as Wanda Jackson, Rufus Wainwright, Robert Plant, Leon Russell and Vampire Weekend to name just a few. Additionally it was highlighted in SXSW documentary Nowhere Now as well as Anthony Bourdain's show US Desert.
