    The new Highball no longer has a bowling alley, but they have karaoke, craft beer and craft cocktails. Yup, it's awesome.

    If you're gonna karaoke, the Super Mario room is the way to go.

    Kyle Bunch · August 31, 2014
  • Bert M.

    Main room is karaoke on Sundays and there are eight additional karaoke rooms that can be reserved

    Bert Minten · August 18, 2014

    The Jailbreak gang. Don't even bother ordering anything else. (Just kidding, but it's pretty good.) this bar will always have a special place in my heart. And KARAOKE!!

    Ajay Waghray · August 17, 2014

    A bit smaller than the old place but still has plenty of charm.

    Kevin Sullivan · August 13, 2014

    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

    Goodbye Highball.

    Lots of fun! Make sure to call ahead on weekend nights to book a lane for bowling! Also you can borrow board games to play! Try Dirty Scrabble!!

    Taylor Martin · November 10, 2012

    80's sheek with a score your own bowling alley……..oh yeah and it is the best Karaoke bar in the city.

    Red Bull · August 6, 2012
  • Deborah C.

    Try the Onion Rings - Yummo!

    Deborah Coley · August 2, 2012
  • Kaileigh S.

    Titty Bingo every Tuesday at 10pm!

    Kaileigh Smith · July 25, 2012
  • Social N.

    The best deal there: Wednesday night trivia is free to join and is during their happy hour. Also, a fun jazz band plays afterward!

    Social News Network · June 29, 2012
  • Social N.

    In my opinion, having a private room at Highball is the only way to Karaoke. You get your own personal waiter, and don't have to worry about embarrassing yourself in front of strangers.

    Social News Network · June 27, 2012
  • Anthony B.

    Try the 78704 cocktail even if you don't like gin.

    Anthony Begnoche · June 21, 2012

    Enrique Escalante · May 18, 2012
  • Sheritta N.

    John and James are awesome. If you haven't been here for trivia, check it out. Lots of nerds and lots of fun.

    Sheritta Nesbitt · May 13, 2012
  • Jenn K.

    Overpriced for not great food. The food is probably worth a fourth of its actual cost.

    Jenn K · May 4, 2012
  • Jordan H.

    Pancakes are really good. And, infused vodka...yum!

    Jordan Hammond · April 28, 2012

    Hang out at the bar with Gypsy!

    Valdo Perales · April 20, 2012
  • Sara P.

    Try the Corpse reviver - The Corpse Reviver: Gin, lemon, orange liqueur, lillet blanc, and a bit of absinthe. #Yum

    Sara Peralta · April 6, 2012

    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!

    GO THERE! seriously, drop everything and just go there! it's such a fun and very classy 50s bowling alley. a must visit.

    Max Gemeinhardt · March 11, 2012
  • Laughing Squid

    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!

    Laughing Squid · March 10, 2012
  • Rusty B.

    Put an egg on it!

    Rusty Blazenhoff · March 10, 2012
  • Kyle B.

    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.

    Kyle Bunch · March 7, 2012
  • Casey H.

    Jazz brunch on Sundays is the best! Ask what the pancakes of the day are and order a Mariposa.

    Casey H. · February 19, 2012
  • Do512

    Highball is always poppin', and SXSW is going to be no exception! Hoedown at The Highball, Free entry with RSVP on!

    Get a karaoke room... have the time of your life!

    Meredith Kelman · February 2, 2012

    Check out the karaoke!

    Charles Edge · February 2, 2012
  • Michelle H.

    Dr. Pepper Ribs are delish but really quite spicy.

    Michelle Hermark · January 23, 2012
  • Randy S.

    Get a drink

    Randy Solis · January 7, 2012
  • The Austin Grand Prix

    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.

    The Austin Grand Prix · December 30, 2011
  • Andrew D.

    Closed on Sunday...

    Andrew Del Preore · December 18, 2011
  • Jae S.

    Brunch and cocktails are delish, but avoid the Jazz brunch if you are hungover!

    Jae Salinas 🍜 · December 15, 2011
