SMOKING ALLOWED INSIDE
We allow the smoking of cigarettes and e-cigarettes on our premises, so if your personal preference is to avoid being around any amount of smoke, this may not be the place for you.
Sadly, even good things come to an end. Here’s what you need to know for when closing time is right around the corner.

Any spot in the adjacent parking lot marked with a Vortex Parking Sign is always free to Vortex customers. All the other spots in this lot are available to Vortex customers as well, but on weekends, and certain holidays, there may be a charge to utilize those spaces. Other parking lots are available throughout Little 5 Points, and there is also metered and non-metered parking on the streets. Wherever you park, please read and obey all posted signage to avoid being ticketed, booted or towed.
TAXIS AND RIDE SHARING SERVICES
Safe Ride America offers three unique services to pro-actively prevent all types of impaired driving. They do the driving so you don’t have to. Check them out.
You can find and reserve shared bicycles through Relay Bike Share. Click here to find out more information.
This Vortex location is also accessible via the Inman Park Marta Train Station. Approximate walking time from this station is less than 15 minutes. We also suggest using taxi service, and the ride sharing services of Uber and Lyft.
All seating is first-come, first-served. We do not take reservations or offer call-ahead seating. Large parties are discouraged during peak business periods. A covered, heated and air-conditioned patio is also available at this location.
We love the pups, but apparently Fulton County does not. Therefore, in accordance with local regulations, our patio is not dog-friendly.
The Vortex is a neighborhood bar. It is not really a “take-out” restaurant, so our “dine-in” guests will always be our first priority. Therefore, phone-in take-out service may be suspended during peak business periods. 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.
Everything you need to know about The Vortex-Little 5 Points should be listed on this website, but if you absolutely must call, here’s the number: (404) 688-1828.
