About Lala's

Founded in 1972, Lala's Little Nugget has long been one of the divining and endearing bars of Austin, Texas for decades. With the halls decked with boughs of holly year round, Santa and his reindeer perched on the roof and generations of Christmas memorabilia, Lala's is a North Pole oasis in Central Texas.

Here at Lala's we have been thrilled to see the growth of the Crestview and North Burnet neighborhood and have enjoyed welcoming droves of newcomers to our loyal fanbase. Please stop by soon for a cold beer or tasty cocktail with the friendliest bar staff in town or enjoy a warm Austin evening on our patio!

Our Crew

Dan Hultquist

I’m originally from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I moved to Brooklyn, New York when I was 22, after a year; I moved to Portland, Oregon and then moved back to Brooklyn. I then moved to Austin, Texas, then back to Brooklyn. After that, I moved to California for a quick stint. Then, I moved back to Austin the place I call home!

I have a beautiful wife and daughter. I met my wife here in Austin, who is originally from New Jersey.

In my travels, I've worked as a cook and a bartender. I’ve made a lot of craft cocktails in my time of slingin' the good stuff!

Please don’t be afraid...


Jonny Evans

My name is Jonny Evans. I'm originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, and have been living in Austin since 2010. I have worked at various venues, bars, and cocktail lounges in this city, but none with the unique history and environment as Lala's Little Nugget. I'm always excited to suggest a cocktail, and always around to grab you another tallboy.
