We’re a family-friendly, dog-friendly beer and wine garden located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, just outside of Wimberley.  To keep up with us, our llamas, and any special happenings, please follow us @TheShadyLlama on Instagram or The Shady Llama on Facebook!  You can also check what food trucks are onsite, what bands are playing, and when trivia is happening on our events calendar!

Curious what food truck(s) we have onsite?  Check out our Calendar!

No outside alcohol or coolers, please.

As always, since our space is all outdoor, we do occasionally close if the weather is unsafe for outdoor activity. (This includes conditions that would make the roads unsafe for travel.)  Check our Instagram/Facebook pages for updates, and Google/Yelp for hours.


The Shady Llama is an outdoor beer and wine garden where you can spend time with family and friends enjoying the beautiful Texas Hill Country and our amazing sunset view.  Come visit for a beer, glass of wine, soda, or iced tea.  If you’re lucky, you may get to meet one of our five shady llamas up close, or possibly our two miniature donkeys!  Enjoy a game of cornhole or just relax in one of our hammocks and take in the view. Well-behaved dogs are welcome on a leash. Children are also welcome, leash optional.

We also have food trucks serving most hours we’re open (they’re located right behind the bar):

Dripping Wings serves up hot wings in a variety of flavors, plus chicken tenders and sides (https://www.facebook.com/drippingwings/).  Call in orders: 512-645-6858

Pho-Lisha’s serves an eclectic mix of Asian, Cajun, and Texan dishes, including their signature Phorrito (https://www.pholishas.com).  Call in orders: 225-276-9928

(Please note that Dripping Wings or Pho-Lisha’s may occasionally be offsite for other events and we’ll have a guest food truck fill in. Please check our events calendar or social media for updates.)

About The Owners

Karalisa and Lamar Sellers met 10 years ago while pursuing their plates at The Flying Saucer in Austin (drinking 200 different beers earns a plate on the wall).  They both earned their plates, later married, and moved to Houston for work.  Despite having “real jobs” that they both enjoyed, they dreamed of getting back to central Texas and creating a business together.

They made that dream a reality in January 2017 when they purchased land near Wimberley and began the construction process for what is now The Shady Llama, which opened in March 2018.  Karalisa and Lamar are now full-time bartenders, sunset connoisseurs, and proud parents to a spunky 3-year-old daughter.

About The Llamas and Donkeys

A NOTE: Our animals roam the acreage and we allow them to come and go as they please. During the warm Texas summers, our llamas and donkeys are less active as they prefer to find a shady spot to escape the heat. While they do occasionally turn up at the bar to visit with customers (usually early in the afternoon or near sunset), llama sightings cannot be guaranteed.

Dolly – Head Mama Llama in charge. Loves neck rubs and kisses (if you dare).

Odin – Sometimes he’s a big gray fluff ball and sometimes he has a mohawk. His favorite things are getting sprayed with the water hose and taking selfies.

Sadie – Sometimes called Shady Sadie. An excellent giver of side-eye who wishes she was in charge.

Anastasia – As much like a Russian princess as a llama can be. Unapproachable and generally distrustful of the llamarazzi.

Barley – Our bouncy baby was the first llama born on the property (a surprise!) and loves laying in his kiddie pool on the hot summer days. He’s almost 2 years old and is almost as tall as his mom.

Elsie – Our not-so-mini donkey has a big belly and a bigger heart. She is not here for any llama nonsense but she’ll gladly take a rub and a snack if you’re offering.

Galena – Baby Gal is petite, but her spirit is not. She loves charging the llamas and hogging the camera. If she’s not kicking over buckets, she’s waiting at the fence for a head scratch.
