We’re always ready for a night of casual hedonism at Pappy’s. A sprawling bar-meets-restaurant-meets-live-music-venue on the edge of Pioneertown, anything goes here. While you wait (and without a reservation, you will definitely wait), order a beer at the always-packed bar before settling down at your table to racks of ribs, baskets of fries, and another beer. Afterward, jostle for space on the dance floor, which is always packed full of locals in cowboy boots, Angelenos down for the night, bikers, and bachelorettes rocking out to live country music.
