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.

Our special guest this week is Paolo Dalla Zorza, owner of Paolo's Gelato. He joins us on the podcast with his girlfriend/marketing manager and interpreter, Elizabeth Hall. Good thing she came along because Paolo's accent is ridiculous. Michael spends the podcast eating at least a gallon of gelato, and co-host Andrew Markle tries gelato for the first time ever while being teased mercilessly by Paolo. This one may give you brain freeze!

Bantam may mean small chicken, but there ain't no tiny cocks on this podcast! Kenn Taylor, co-owner of Bantam Pub in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood, comes on and talks about the changes he's seen in the area, hipsters and how much he’d like to see VBC in a ball gag.

This week we finally got Dublin, our Little 5 Points General Manager, to join the podcast. If you love our bar in L5P, you’ll want to listen to get the inside scoop on what goes on behind the big Laughing Skull. Don’t let Dublin fool you. She’s a rebel.
