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.

This week, the mother of the three Vortex owners and siblings is our guest on Vortex Radio! Suzanne, Michael, Rebecca and Baby Colin join Mrs. Benoit as she flips through old Vortex photos and reminisces about how it all got started. Because nothing makes for good radio quite like going through a photo album! You’ll even hear about the owners’ first jobs, way before The Vortex was even a thought. This is a good one!
