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.

Looking to increase your tequila smarts? We've got just what your brain is craving in this episode of Vortex Radio. We are joined by the Sales Director for Atlanta's own Goza Tequila, Lauren Kaufman. She runs us through their delicious tequilas and tells us all about how they are made. If that's not enough expertise for you, Michael is a certified Mezcalier which means that, according to the Mexican government, he can teach you all you need to know about Mezcal. So take a shot and get ready for some junk food for your earholes!
