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!



Starting October 1st, we will be open on Mondays from 4:00-10:00 p.m.!  Also starting Monday, October 1st, we’ll be hosting Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz every Monday from 7:00-9:00.  Join us for 8 rounds of  audio, visual and live hosted trivia.  Our weekly quiz is free to play and we’ll be giving away prizes for answering bonus questions and gift cards for our top teams at the end of the night.  Geeks Who Drink rules limit the total number of players on your team to 6, so gather your smartest friends and come play!


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 are located at 18325 Ranch Road 12 — just 5 miles north of the Wimberley town square, or 10 miles south of Dripping Springs — on the west side of the highway.

Our hours are:

Thursday:  4pm – 10pm
Friday:  4pm – 10pm
Saturday:  12pm – 10pm
Sunday:  12pm – 9pm

BUT… because we’re an entirely outdoor bar, we are weather-dependent, so check our social media feeds if the weather looks unfavorable!

For questions, concerns, or just to chat about our llamas, feel free to reach out to us at theshadyllamatx@gmail.com


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 nearly 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 2-year-old daughter.

About The Llamas

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 llama! He was born on the property in 2017 (a surprise!) and loves laying in his kiddie pool on the hot summer days.

A NOTE: Our llamas roam the acreage and we allow them to come and go as they please. During the warm Texas summers, our llamas 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, llama sightings cannot be guaranteed.
