Whether you're looking for a trivia night, a live band, the coolest karaoke rooms in town celebrating every geeky thrill from Super Mario to cinematic Satanism, or just a post-film drink, this bar and event space attached to the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar
movie theatre is just the ticket.
The HighBall offers a hip vibe and a great view of Austin's skyline along with its retro entertainment and varied (and evolving) menu
This South Austin iteration of a British-themed pub franchise veers slightly askew of its Northside cousin. Though cover bands dominate the calendar Thursday through Sunday, Baker St. occasionally presents original local bands like Pong, Roxy Roca, and the aptly named South Austin Moonlighters. Parking is dicier here than up north, but the patio doesn’t face a freeway. Otherwise, you get a full bar, 23 beers on tap, and a lengthy menu covering everything from Baja tacos to bangers and mash. Happy hour runs until 9pm and all day Sunday.
