Harold's History From The Old Days

Harold's is the landmark "Wild West Saloon and Restaurant". It was opened in 1935 as the "Corral Bar" to serve the camp workers that were building Bartlett Dam. A local Cave Creek character, Harold Gavagan bought the Corral Bar in 1950 and renamed it Harold's Cave Creek Corral. Some crazy marketing gimmicks caged lions and like tigers on display enticed tourists.

From fledgling came dusty cowpokes, backgrounds for western movies, movie stars, and flamboyant characters. It became the Cave Creek hangout and a tourist attraction. The rest speaks for itself. With combined seating for over 800 folks, Harold's Corral became the biggest attraction of its kind in the Phoenix and Scottsdale area. It's in Cave Creek AZ and right next to Carefree, Arizona.
