We love to have fun - and when you’re having fun with us is when we’re at our best. 

The dream team

Michael Shelton and Shannon Sedwick are the founders of the iconic Esther's Follies on East 6th. They have a long history in the industry, having had a hand in or owned properties such as Liberty Lunch, Philley’s Diner,  Buffalo Grille, and more recently, The Tavern, which they owned in the early 80's,  then bought and revamped again in 2018. Their love for food and creating a warm, inviting gathering place matches their love for comedy. 

First bartending at the age of 19, Vince Vieluf went on to become the general manager of Hollywood hotspot Fellini's in his twenties. The all-star crowd diverted him into a twenty-four year entertainment career, while he stayed connected to the service industry by guest bartending at the legendary Luna Park. In 2014, Vince moved to his home state of Texas, managing downtown Austin bars Lucky Lounge and Halcyon, until fate led to an opportunity to work with Michael and Shannon. As the current general manager of The Tavern since it's relaunch, he jumped at the chance to partner up with the duo to save another Austin classic landmark, Stars Cafe.
