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.

This was the best karaoke experience I've ever had! The service was awesome and the selection of music was great. I wish they music could have been louder but I will still definitely come back.

Please stop using paper to write down credit card numbers. These were left unattended in the front and were not locked up, when I asked about them I was told they're kept for a week and then shredded. That means anyone wanting to simply reach under a desk would have a weeks worth of credit card numbers. Please don't do that.

My only regret is not booking the room for one more hour. Two wasn’t enough.

I looked at 6 different venues. The Highball had the best pricing and the most rooms with the most variety in room size. It also had the most unique themed rooms. We were in Joysticks which has a classic Mario Brothers video game setting which everyone though was cool and fun. The room also had its own AC control and unit which came in handy as it did get warm quick with that many people. Our server was very attentive and quick. A few downsides, but not deal breakers or bad, the room was listed to hold up to18, we had 15 and it was a tight fit. The bathrooms are downstairs and drink prices are a bit high, e.g., a mango margarita ran $12. A couple of things to keep in mind, they do check ID’s so don’t forget them. And, the room reservations are in blocks of 2 hrs. I thought this would be plenty of time but it went by so fast and my group wanted to keep going. Overall, we had a fantastic time and plan to go back again. If you do decide to go I think you’ll have a great time too.

Aside from some tech problems (system crashing, microphones dying) it was a great time. Jake took really good care of us, and deserves some recognition for that.

We had a party of 18 for my birthday for karaoke. Five of my family members/friends had never been to the venue and they had such a blast! Our server was very attentive and professional. It would be nice to see some other food items on the menu that have been discontinued like the cheese board. More keto options for people that follow a low carb way of eating. Overall, I always enjoy events at The Highball and we had a fantastic experience!

The Highball was absolutely fabulous!! The 8 of us had a great time singing! The food was delicious and so were the drinks. They probably could have used one more person to help with service and microphones that last longer than an hour. Overall, AMAZING time. Thank you so much Highball for offering your services!
