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!

Great, fast service. The karaoke room was comfortable and the karaoke system easy to use. We really appreciated the wireless microphones. A couple people did comment on a musty smell in the room, though I couldn't smell anything (and it didn't seem to detract from their experience).

Service was great and karaoke rooms had a great song selection. The Highball karaoke song list app for the iPhone was also very helpful.

Booking at The Highball for our company event was a seamless experience and the service during our reservation was absolutely top notch. I'll definitely be back and will recommend that my co-workers also come as well for group activities.

Everything was great except the Karaoke system. It had to be rebooted several times. None of the newer songs worked and that combined with the rebooting so many times kind of ruined the experience (this was a bachelorette party). The waiter was great and discounted the room but I would’ve rather paid more for a better experience. Very disappointed.

We were in the Fifth Dimension room and the machine stopped working but the servers were very accommodating and handled everything professionally. Will definitely return in the future!

The Karaoke roster is pretty dated. For a place with this many rooms and karaoke focus I was expecting a better selection. We still had a good time singing older songs but it would have been nice if literally anything currently on the radio was in the catalog.

Hands down one of the best experiences we have had while in Austin! We were a large Bachelorette party looking to laugh, have some fun, and sing to our hearts desire with all the best karaoke songs in the universe! The Highball fit the bill! The room, 5th Dimension, was unique and perfect for our group, the technology in the room and music interface/iPad was easy to use, the customer service was excellent, the food and drink were exceptional, and overall, we had a wonderful time from start to finish over 2 hours at The Highball! I would highly recommend to anyone looking to have a memorable time and something you will be talking about with your group for ages! Booking the room was super easy and done online, the management I interacted with over e-mail were so nice and accommodating, and finally, they went above and beyond and made our Bachelorette party feel extra special by creating a special sign to welcome our group in the room! How sweet and generous! We really appreciated that! Truly wonderful in every way and I promise you that you will not be disappointed! If we ever get the chance to book again; hands down, we will return to The Highball! Thank you everyone at The Highball for a great time!

The rooms are awesomely decorated and the song list is fairly good (with most titles being available). The pricing for drinks and food is a bit higher than I think is fair, and the reservations are too packed next to each other which creates a hurried aspect when reservations end.

The table in the Black Lodge room is really small. My party of four ordered too many food and drinks to fit on it, so we just had to set stuff around the room. I love the design of the table itself (log), but maybe there ought to be two in the room if they're going to be so small.

Our server over charged us and that still has not been corrected. He would Rush in and out of the room, we had to yell to get him to stop and listen to everyone's request. Our room wasn't ready when we got there, the floor was wet and we were rushed out for the next guests. We came on the buy one hour get one free night, that is the only redeeming thing about the evening.

The song list was advertised as being the most up to date. There were a few songs I looked up that were not listed that were pop music hits. I was a bit surprised by that. Otherwise, it was a good evening. But a few songs I wanted were not listed, like Heartbeat Song by Kelly Clarkson.
