We had a great time at The High Ball. It is an annex bar that you can enjoy while waiting for a Movie. Good drinks and snacks plus a fun atmosphere.

We saw the Hot Texas Swing Band play here and loved to watch the participants. The caviar deviled eggs and crispy Brussels sprouts were just the ticket to go with our beverages.

I have been to High Ball many times. I have had dinner there and it was wonderful. But the main attraction for me is the music! They have a big band stage and dance floor. The music is always entertaining and lots of dancing!!!
