SMOKE-FREE INSIDE

The Vortex-L5P does not allow smoking or vaping of any kind inside of our premises. However, we do continue to offer the option to smoke cigarettes and e-cigarettes within the fenced patio area just outside of the bar. We call this area the “playpen.” The smoking of stinky stuff like cigars, pipes, clove cigarettes, hookahs or anything deemed illegal by the oligarchy, will not be allowed anywhere on our property.

OPERATING HOURS

The Vortex-L5P is OPEN at 11:00 AM – seven days a week. Our “Last-Call” and “Closing” times are listed below, because you can’t just waltz in five minutes before we close and order food or drinks. That’s just not how this works.

● SUNDAY through THURSDAY

– Last-Call for FOOD @ 11:00 PM
– Last-Call for BOOZE @ 11:30 PM
Everyone KICKED OUT @ Midnight

● FRIDAY and SATURDAY

– Last-Call for FOOD @ 1:00 AM

HOLIDAY HOURS

The hours listed below refer to The Vortex-L5P only. Holiday Hours may differ between the two locations. When a national Holiday falls on a Monday, The Vortex is allowed by law to stay open until 3:00 am on the preceding Sunday night. We will utilize this legal option based on our business volume at the time. If we’re busy, we’ll stay open. If we’re not, we won’t.

PARKING OPTIONS

There is a parking lot adjacent to The Vortex-L5P. Any space in this lot designated with a “Vortex Parking” sign is free parking for our patrons, while they are dining at The Vortex. All the other spots in this lot are also available to Vortex customers, but on weekends and certain holidays, there may be a charge to utilize those spaces. Other parking lots are also available throughout Little 5 Points, and there is metered and non-metered parking on the streets.

● PARKING NOTICE

Parking meters do not generally operate on Sunday or holidays, so street parking is free on those days. Wherever you park, please read and obey all posted signage to avoid being ticketed, booted or towed. And always secure your valuables. You’re in the big city, kids.

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

MARTA operates Atlanta’s public transportation system. The Vortex-L5P is accessible by commuter rail via the Inman Park-Reynoldstown Transit Station, located at 1055 Dekalb Avenue on the East/West line. This train station is 0.8 miles away from our Little 5 Points location, for an approximate walking time of 17 minutes. Bus service is also available throughout the city.

● RIDE SHARING SERVICES

Uber and Lyft offer effective transportation to anywhere you’d like to go. We also suggest using taxi service, as another alternative to driving yourself and parking your car. There are also multiple short distance rental services available that utilize mopeds, scooters, bicycles and various other contraptions. They litter the sidewalks everywhere. You can’t miss ‘em.

SEATING POLICIES

All seating at The Vortex-L5P is first-come, first-served. We do not take reservations or offer phone-ahead seating. This is the smaller of the two Vortex locations, and is not designed to accommodate large parties. All parties must be complete before seating during any peak business period. Covered patio dining may also be available, weather permitting.

TAKE-OUT SERVICE

The Vortex-L5P is a neighborhood bar. We do NOT specialize in “take-out” service, so our “dine-in” guests will always be our first priority. Therefore, phone-in take-out service may be suspended during peak business periods.

● NIGHT TIME TAKE-OUT

After 8:00pm, take-out orders can ONLY be placed in-person with the bartender and must be paid for at the time the order is placed. CLICK HERE for more information about our take-out policies.

COMEDY CLUB

The Laughing Skull Lounge comedy club is located inside the OTHER Vortex location (The Vortex-Midtown). PLEASE NOTE: This venue is independently operated, so The Vortex will NOT be able to assist with any inquiries. But, you can CLICK HERE to visit their website, and get all the details.
