About Lala's

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

Here at Lalas 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 newly constructed patio!

Our Crew


Ryan Payne

"My name is Ryan Payne. I am originally from Oklahoma City, but I've lived in Austin since 2003, and I visited the city many, many times before I moved here. When I was younger, I worked downtown at clubs. I did everything from doorguy to barback. I couldn't be happier to be at Lala's now. I love that it's not a club, I love that it's a neighborhood bar, and I love making friends with the neighbors. Being here affords me the opportunity to get to know folks, and I find a lot of value in that.

I am a family man. I'm married and I have a step son. My family is everything to me. Music...


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.
