Austin: Highball Bowling is a kitsched-out 1950s bowling alley and karaoke palace. The Disco-themed karaoke room even comes with leg warmers, polyester shirts and chest hair. Fever! - IFC Staff
Welcome to The Highball, the best diner this side of 1960 featuring eight lanes of bowling with rental by the hour; seven different themed karaoke rooms; four lanes of skee-ball with ticketed prizes.
Check out the karaoke!
80's sheek with a score your own bowling alley……..oh yeah and it is the best Karaoke bar in the city.
If this is your first time about Highball and you're on the fence about your karaoke skills, you're lucky enough to have your own private room to entertain - or torture - your friends.
Bring a flask!
Going to bowl, you manually score, buy the iPhone app, so much better!
The Heirloom martini is smashing.
Swankiest joint in town. Get the amazing buttermilk-battered fried chix but be sure to save room for the (flaming) Highball Jubilee dessert. Also, say hi to the delightful waitress, Sam! Oh and bowl!
Highball is always poppin', and SXSW is going to be no exception! Hoedown at The Highball, Free entry with RSVP on do512.com!
You don't just have to bowl here, they also have karaoke! And if you come during happy hour, you will find out they have great drink prices and free karaoke!
Great Fun and a Great Place.
Although not particularly expensive, this place is a little bit classy. Behave accordingly.
The happy hour rocks! 4:30 - 7. 2 dollar most pints, 4 dollar wells and complimentary private karaoke room.
These bowling lanes are the same type as seen in The Big Lebowski, meaning you have to keep score yourself. Turkey! Also try the (erratic) skee-ball machines!
Download the karoke app for your group outings.
Checking in is creepy.
Win at least 10 tickets with a "Thai One On" in one hand!
Saturday Jazz Brunch with $1 mimosas!
Order the martini with the tomato and basil. So delish.
Looking for drinks in a great retro environment? Check. Perhaps some karaoke? Check. Top it all off with great food and bowling? Check and check.
All day happy hour and geeks who drink trivia on wednesdays. What's not to like?
One Saturday a month they have shopping! Local vendors with cool things
Their limes suck. Ask for 2 or 3...
Ummm karaoke room is strictly 21+ they don't care if you're almost 21. Kinda weird if you ask me.
Happy hour all day on Wednesdays. $2 fox barrel pear cider
order the glacier
Try the heirloom martini - it's delicious!!
John is a totally friendly and great bartender. May you order drinks from him early and often.
Order the shrimp plate. It's fantastic.
Being that this place has been closed for two months "Brandon K's" mayorship is void and proof that he doesn't know jack shit
Titty Bingo every Tuesday at 10pm!
GO THERE! seriously, drop everything and just go there! it's such a fun and very classy 50s bowling alley. a must visit.
Dr. Pepper Ribs are delish but really quite spicy.
This place is always as busy as a 1950's Drive-In! Rightfully so, as you can bowl, dance or rent out a private karaoke room. Skip the food; order drinks preparedly; service can be vacant at times.
Check out the daily calender. There is always something cool going on here!!
Ross + martini
This place is amazing if you like jazz, bowling, and stiff drinks. I'll take d.) for all of the above.
Dr. Pepper Ribs Yum!
Heirloom Martini tastes like leaves.
Service sucked. The menu is trying WAY too hard. The prices are ridiculous. I won't go back. Too bad. We could have been something.
I rent all my shoes from here every day because I don't own any shoes.
Half price drinks for the Mayor of The Highball. Limit is four drinks per day every time you come to the Highball during your reign! Sample our amazing cocktail menu, or that fine, fine list of scotch
The Old Thyme Lemonade is killer. Delicious & dangerous. Don't say I didn't warn you...
Great chicken fried steak
