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.
Marissa was great! Our equipment shutdown for like 20 minutes:( she moved us to another room so we could finish our playlist! Genuinely appreciated her helpfulness. My only small complaints are obviously having to shutdown and reboot the whole system and wait for like 20 minutes. Marissa said that issue is being addressed soon! And that the song selection is quite limited. But overall great time!! Super fun themed rooms, great microphones and can’t hear other people so you can sing your heart out in off pitched peace!
Need some updated songs but otherwise great!
I booked a room for 2 and specified I wanted the Black Lodge but I did not get that room and the room I did get of similar size was $35 per hour and not $20 per hour like the website said even though we were only a party of 2. I really didn’t appreciate how disparate was the information I got from the website from what was actually offered/reserved.
servers seemed to be a bit short staffed. would have been good if we could have gotten a few extra rounds of drinks. and since we were a bigger group it was tough getting a round all at once. do y'all offer bottle service in the rooms? that might have been a better option for us but i wasn't sure if it was available
Everyone had a great time. It would have been cooler if the song list was updated with songs from the last year or two.
Thank you for a great birthday celebration! I appreciate the flexibility you provided in my reservation and we all had a great time. Our server was quick and on point too. I'm not a huge fan of that particular room, so that's why I have it 4 stars, but I was happy a room was available. Cheers!
The themed rooms are very well done. Give control of the AC. And dont be afraid to contact the staff if your battery dies. They will quickly replace it.
Executing was amazing! Tasty drinks, great service from Marissa! Please get some lizzo songs on your karaoke list!
Really fun! Great for small groups.
It would be nice if we could reserve the rooms for a little longer
The place was do much fun! We got to be in 2 rooms and it was fun to check out the different themes...the wait staff was super attentive and nice! I would reccomend to anyone.
We had a blast, and the service was awesome, but the room stank like your grandma's basement.
This was definitely not the server's fault, but it took forever to order and get drinks because y'all were understaffed and slammed downstairs.
Always a great time!!!
Had a great time doing karaoke. The rooms are awesome.
The song selection is limited and does not include new releases. The server and room were great!
The room was nice and clean. We had great service with our bartender. The music and sound system was great. It’s a very nice, classy bar and the private karaoke options make it even better. We had a great time!
We had a great time!
Fantastic karaoke happy hour!
Microphones both ran out of battery but were replaced quickly by server. Server was prompt and attentive. Had a great time.
Fun activity for group of friends and family.
I had my holiday party here and we had so much fun. We might make it a thing and do it every year.
The karaoke room was fun. Service is still a bit slow, and having to go downstairs for the restroom is a pain. I was disappointed that the ginger beer has changed, the Moscow Mules don't taste as good as they did with Maine Root. Also, why don't you have Deep Eddy flavored vodka, that's a staple here in Austin.
The room smelled musty and the music selection was pretty old and limited, but private karaoke is always fun and the drinks were good.
