An expanded, shaded outdoor patio offering more seating for patrons and a popular Unibet sportsbook offering live wagering on all major sports means the start of football season will look a lot different at Harold’s Cave Creek Corral this year.
The country western bar and restaurant has been serving patrons for nearly 90 years, according to a press release. During the past two decades, Harold’s Corral has grown to become a large Steelers bar, affectionately known as “Heinz Field West.”
Now, with the addition of the Unibet sportsbook, Harold’s has become popular with fans of all sports. Whether its football, baseball, soccer, golf, or tennis, the Unibet sportsbook at Harold’s offers an easy wagering experience for die-hard and bandwagon fans alike.
“The Unibet sportsbook has been a game changer for us,” said Danny Piacquadio, Harold’s co-owner, in the release. “The biggest change has been that we’re attracting all types of sports fans from all over the Valley. It’s a big draw for locals, but because we’re the only sportsbook in the North Valley, we’re seeing new faces every day.”
Harold’s and Unibet formed a partnership late last summer, and the Unibet kiosks were installed several weeks after football season began. Harold’s also added a new backyard patio around the same time so more guests can dine outside. The patio provides easy access to cornhole, ping pong and other games.
“In addition to watching our favorite team, the Steelers, we show several other games every Sunday in this additional space,” Piacquadio said in the release.
While Harold’s continues to transform into a sea of black and gold on NFL game days, the 12,000-square-foot restaurant is packed for other sporting events as well.
“Unibet has been great to work with, and our patrons like that they can spend time with friends, enjoy delicious food and drinks, and have some fun wagering on local and international sports,” Piacquadio said in the release.
During NFL season games, Harold’s averages 650 Steelers fans who gather to wave their “Terrible Towels” and root for their team some 2,091 miles away from Pittsburgh. The restaurant serves traditional Steelers delicacies and employs a DJ who plays more than 40 Steelers songs. The special menu includes Primanti Brothers sandwiches, Ben Roethlis(burger)s, Iron City beer, pierogies and other fan favorites.
Harold’s also has partnered with Four Peaks Brewery to create its own Black and Gold lager on special every Sunday during football season.
The Unibet sportsbook is open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. or when major sports events are taking place.
