Hand-picked Desert Provisions

Pioneertown was founded as western movie set in the 1940s, but the spirit of the wild west lives on in our small desert community. The hi-desert is a beautiful and rugged place to call home, with temperatures below freezing in the winter and dry hot summers. We all come here with shared values to respect the land, plants and sacred animals of the desert-- and each other. It's a way of living. 

And there are a few things you might need while you're here- as part of a desert lifestyle. Desert provisions.

While around  Pioneertown

Pappy and Harriet's

Now-legendary Pioneertown music venue Pappy & Harriet's began as the “cantina” set for numerous western films in the 1940's and 50's.  In 1972, Harriet’s mother, Francis Aleba, and her husband, John, purchased the building and opened “The Cantina”, an outlaw biker burrito bar. In 1982, Harriet and her husband, Claude “Pappy” Allen, opened “Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace”.  Robyn Celia and Linda Krantz bought Pappy's in 2003 well after Pappy passed away and brought it back to its glory days. You can feel all this history and more while sitting at the bar eating great food and listening to some of the best music in the world every night of the week.

Mane St.

The town started as a live-in Old West motion-picture set, built in the 1940s. The set was designed to provide a place for the actors to live while using their homes in the movie. A number of Westerns and early television shows were filmed in Pioneertown, including The Cisco Kid and Edgar Buchanan's Judge Roy Bean. Take a stroll down Mane street to see some of the old buildings used in the movie sets- some of which now small retail shops. An abandoned bowling alley, a reconstructed jail, a bathhouse and an old bank.  It might be hard to know what's real and what's a facade, and that's all part of the fun!

La Copine

La Copine began as a pop-up kitchen in 2009.  Chef Nikki Hill partnered with singer-songwriter Claire Wadsworth in Philadelphia where they started their business serving farm-to-table brunch on a food cart. In 2012 Nikki + Claire moved to California and in 2015 they opened their first restaurant, La Copine in Flamingo Heights. La Copine is serving fresh new american brunch, offering weekend specials, and hosting occasional supper club dinners. You can also find their pre-packaged breakfast and lunch items at the General Store, their latest venture with Sarah Tabbush.

The Integratron

The Integratron is located in Landers, California, 20 miles north of Joshua Tree National Park and just a few miles past La Copine. Its creator, George Van Tassel (1910-1978), claimed that the structure is based on the design of Moses’ Tabernacle, the writings of Nikola Tesla and telepathic directions from extraterrestrials. The Integratron is now privately owned by three sisters who provide restorative sound baths in the dome played live on crystal bowls.
