The Shady Llama will be closed until February

In accordance with the state order (GA-32), The Shady Llama is currently closed. We are working with TABC to re-open in a few weeks and look forward to providing an update in February.

If you, like us, are disappointed that the state has failed to allow an exception for bars with outdoor spaces to remain open, giving Texans a safer option to enjoy time with friends and loved ones, please reach out to the office of the Governor. Our request is that Governor Abbott would include an exception for outdoor establishments to state order GA-32.

In accordance with the Governor’s rules applying to bars, guests must be seated to drink. We will seat guests on a first-come, first-served basis, and a waitlist will be available if we are at capacity. Masks are required for entry and when not seated at a table. We can’t wait to see you!

Masks and Social Distancing:  Face masks or coverings are currently required to enter our space and when exploring the property. Guests are asked to maintain six feet from other groups when enjoying areas like the llama pen, fire pit and lawn. Masks may be removed when seated at your table.

Children:  We are dedicated to maintaining a family-friendly environment. Children who are not old enough to wear face coverings must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Dogs:  Well-behaved dogs are allowed but must be on a leash at all times. Please clean up after your pet. For the safety of our animals and your pet, please do not allow your dog to stick their head through the fence.

Llamas:  Our llamas have 40 acres on which to roam and, while they often show up at the bar in the early afternoons, their schedule can be unpredictable. If you would like to feed the llamas or mini-donkeys, buckets of food can be purchased at the bar. Children should always be assisted by an adult when visiting the llama pen.

Outside Food/Beverages:  We now have a food truck onsite – Gringa’s Grub Shak! While you may still bring in snacks, we encourage you to support our food truck (which helps us keep one onsite). Beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages are all available for purchase at the bar. We also have water available. We do not allow outside alcohol or other beverages.

Group size:  In accordance with state requirements for bars, we can seat up to six people per table, including children. We will make an effort to seat groups larger than six at tables in close proximity to each other, but we are unable to accept groups larger than 10 per state rules.

Reservations:  We are not currently accepting reservations or booking private events. Seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Weather:  Because our space is outdoor and uncovered, we are occasionally subject to delayed openings, early closures, and temporary halts in service if the weather is uncooperative (i.e. heavy rain, freezing temps). The best way to stay up-to-date is through our social media accounts on Instagram & Facebook (see link at top of page).
