PAPPY & HARRIET'S PIONEERTOWN PALACE - The best damn roadhouse in America with outstanding live music, food and drink is 9 miles from the studio in Pioneertown. Their indoor and outdoor stages have hosted amazing locals and not-so-locals like Paul McCartney, Lucinda Williams, Robert Plant, Queens of the Stone Age, The Pixies, Spiritualized, Neko Case, Leon Russell, Daniel Lanois, Ralph Stanley, Sean Lennon, Wanda Jackson, Rufus Wainwright, The Donnas, The Melvins, Arctic Monkeys, Ricki Lee Jones, Band of Horses, Grizzly Bear, Jim Lauderdale and Gillian Welch.
The restored PIONEERTOWN MOTEL is 100 yards from Pappy & Harriet's back door. Stagger safely to bed after an unforgetable night.
Walk between Pappy & Harriet's and the Motel down Mane Street to the PIONEERTOWN OLD WEST MOVIE SET built in 1946 and used for many great old Western movies and television shows. Pappy & Harriet’s was originally a cantina set featured in many of the Westerns filmed there.
