SMOKE-FREE INSIDE

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.

PARKING OPTIONS

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.

● 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-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.

SEATING POLICIES

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. All parties must be complete before seating during any peak business period. Open-air, sidewalk patio dining may also be available, weather permitting.

TAKE-OUT SERVICE

The Vortex-Midtown 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

Behind the men’s restroom of The Vortex-Midtown you will find the Laughing Skull Lounge comedy club. 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.
