L5P BASICS

ADULTS ONLY

The Vortex-Little 5 Points is a bar. Therefore, we restrict access to patrons 21 and over. Proper ID is always required to remain on the premises. No ID = No entry. This includes the whole joint. All day. Every day. No kids. No exceptions. Really.

SMOKING ALLOWED INSIDE

We allow the option to smoke cigarettes and e-cigarettes when seated at our BAR only. Smoking is not allowed anywhere else on the premises. If your personal preference is to avoid ANY amount of smoke or vapor, this may not be the place for you.

● TAKE THE SMOKING SURVEY

If you have an opinion about our current smoking policy, now is the time to let your voice be heard. You can CLICK HERE to complete a brief, seven question survey on the topic. The Vortex Smoking Survey will be active until 12 noon on Thursday January 31, 2019. So, don’t miss your chance to let us know what YOU think. We will report the results in a follow-up blog, posted on our website in early February, so come back at that time for all the details.

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 train 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 The Vortex, 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 is first-come, first-served. We do not take reservations or offer phone-ahead seating. Large parties are discouraged during peak business periods. Covered patio dining is available, weather permitting.

TAKE-OUT SERVICE

The Vortex 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), but we do not operate this venue. Therefore, we will NOT be able to assist with any inquiries regarding this club. For more information you can CLICK HERE to visit their website.
