About The Highball

Whether it’s our world-famous themed karaoke rooms, dance parties packed shoulder-to-shoulder, our interactive events like Geeks Who Drink quiz, Cards Against Humanity and Tittie Bingo, or the extraordinary country and Motown bands that play our stage… Austin knows there’s always something awesome going on at The Highball.

Austin’s karaoke mecca
The Highball features seven meticulously conceived themed karaoke rooms for your big and small groups to raid. Each room comes with a server who’ll bring you drinks and snacks and one of the greatest songbooks in the United States. Check out what Spin and Io9 have to say.

We’ve got drinks
Our elite bar staff dreams up brand new cocktails seasonally, and our beer czars select our 24 taps super carefully (with an emphasis on local and unusual). Seeing a movie next door at South Lamar? Grab a drink at The Highball and bring it into the theater!

Events that could only happen here
The stage, the screen, the parties... there’s nothing else like it. Our annual celebrations like “Highballoween”, New Years, and 4th of July make headlines and get bigger every year. There’s something special happening seven days a week at The Highball. Check out our calendar to see what’s going down tonight.

Booked a karaoke room (the totally awesome) for a bachelorette party. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience! We had so much fun just singing and dancing in our own glittery pink room! Downstairs a burlesque show was going on so after our block was over we watched that for about an hour. Just a great bar overall!

The Highball was easy to book and work with when we arrived, ordered drinks, and paid at the end. The room was fun and the right size for our group and the song choices were plentiful. The bar downstairs was a little slow at 11:30 pm when our private room reservation ended which was a little disappointing but we enjoyed the music and bar and made it a good time regardless.

We had a great time. The only complaint I have is that we were hustled out a few minutes early (time enough for one more song). But, great experience overall.

Rates for private karaoke rooms are a little pricey, in my opinion.

I booked this for my sister’s bachelorette weekend and we had a blast! They were so helpful and nice. The room we had was awesome and the service was great! I wish we had one where I lived!! I will defiantly be back the next time I am in town. I do wish we could pay online when we book, but still worth it! Definitely check this place out! 💯

A grand time was had by all, and the support before the event was superb. I only wish the menu was a bit more vegetarian friendly.

The waitress to our black lodge was wonderful BUT the host downstairs was SLOW our reservations weee for 2:45 and she finally got there and then had problems with computer. Made me anxious because we are paying by the hour and wanted the host to do this BEFORE our time. I would have LOVED being at our room at 2:45. Of course the bartender and other workers couldn’t help us we had to wait for the Host which was also waiting on tables. There were 2 people sittin at the bar that used to work there and were trying to get help for us before waiting for the host

Your song selection was limiting. Almost no musicals. No hamilton??? I need way more Broadway. And either get a book or supply another monitor or iPad for quicker song selection. I love your place. Love your staff. Love the vibe.
