Vortex Radio

Congratulations! You’ve found the world’s premier bar and restaurant-themed podcast. "Vortex Radio" will bring you some of the most authentic discussions about the bar business and the hospitality industry that you're likely to find anywhere, and from every angle imaginable. Hosted by Michael Benoit (Co-owner of The Vortex) and Rebecca Taub (General Manager of our Midtown location), podcast guests will include working servers and bartenders, other bar and restaurant owners, chefs, customers, local celebrities and anyone else with a unique perspective on the hospitality industry. The Vortex Bar & Grill, Atlanta’s legendary burger and booze joint, has always rejected idiocy in an industry that frequently encourages it. So when problem customers slip through the cracks (and don’t follow the rules) -- hilarity often ensues. Join Michael and Rebecca as they tell the tales that no one’s ever heard -- until now! Be prepared to get sucked into Vortex Radio.

Every bar has its regulars...but not many have regulars that are like family. Braxton has been coming in at least 3 times a week for almost 10  years. That's a lot of beer, and a lot of good times. Check out Braxton's hilarious interview on this week's episode of Vortex Radio!

Everyone loves Home Grown, Atlanta's favorite local-fresh-homemade haven of breakfast and lunch. We invited our friends, owners Lisa and Kevin to compare notes on these two very different businesses. Where the Vortex walks the gritty line between debauchery and charm, Home Grown glistens like a beacon of light in the darkness. You'll want to sop up every last bite of this episode with a hot buttermilk biscuit.
