As we continue to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, please assist us in providing customer service in as safe a manner as possible by following the directions given by our employees. Please do not behave in a confrontational manner with any staff member, or other patron, while on our premises. Like many businesses, we are still rebuilding our staff. Please be kind to them. Thank you in advance for being cool.


To keep our customers and staff safe, we are continuing to follow the recommendations from the Georgia Governor’s Office. They can be found HERE.


We are currently offering our entire FOOD MENU, which you can preview HERE.

● Product Availability

While we have always taken a great pride in having all menu items available to our customers, please understand that disruptions in the supply chain may continue to impact what we are able to provide at any given time. Staff will notify you if an item is temporarily unavailable, or if we have substituted a specific menu item for something comparable. This extends to our alcoholic beverage offerings as well.


● Order Online

Take-out orders can now be placed online.  Click HERE to redirect to our DoorDash website. NOTE: This website will not function if we are currently closed or have temporarily suspended take-out orders.

● Order in Person

You can also place your orders in person with the bartender. NOTE: As long as we are open, and have not made “last-call” for food, you will always be able to order take-out in person.

● Order by Telephone

You may also phone-in your take-out order to The Vortex-Midtown from the time we open until 8:00 PM every day by calling (404) 875-1667 (Ext. 1). NOTE: If we do not answer the telephone we are either closed or have temporarily suspended take-out orders.

● Pick Up & Delivery

Please pay attention to which Vortex location you order from, because that is where your food will be waiting for you.

● Packaging Fee

An 8% packaging fee is added to all take-out orders.

● Suspension of Take-Out Orders

Historically, The Vortex has NOT been known as a “take-out” restaurant. In an attempt to meet the needs of our patrons throughout the COVID-19 epidemic, we have tried to become more accommodating with regard to offering food to-go. But, we can still only offer take-out service when it’s actually feasible, so this option may be suspended at times. Sorry for any inconvenience. We’re doing our best folks.


The Vortex-Midtown is a bar designed for adults, so access is always restricted to persons 21-and-over. Proper identification is required. No ID = No admission.


The Vortex-Midtown 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 on the sidewalk patio dining area in front of the building. 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.


The Vortex-Midtown does not own, lease or maintain any parking facility for this location, but there are ample “Pay-to-Park” style parking lots and decks available throughout the neighborhood. There is also metered and non-metered parking on the streets. Before you visit, you might want to check out Parkopedia and/or ParkMobile.

● 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.


MARTA operates Atlanta’s public transportation system. The Vortex-Midtown is easily accessible by commuter rail via the Midtown Transit Station, located at 41 Tenth Street on the North/South line. This train station is 0.3 miles (2.5 blocks) away from our Midtown location, for an approximate walking time of 7 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.


All seating at The Vortex-Midtown is first-come, first-served. We do not take reservations or offer phone-ahead seating. While this is the larger of the two Vortex locations, the seating of large parties can still be very challenging when we’re busy, particularly during the COVID-19 restrictions. All parties must be complete before seating during any peak business period. Open-air, sidewalk patio dining may also be available, weather permitting.


If you have a question about either Vortex location, please review this website BEFORE attempting to contact us directly. Everything you could possibly need to know is on here somewhere. Really. It’s a very thorough website.
