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.

Do you like to walk on Atlanta's ever-popular BeltLine? Do you also enjoy a good IPA? WELL THEN, you better listen to this podcast because we have the three guys in charge of the upcoming New Realm Brewing. With a brewery, restaurant and rooftop beer garden right on the east side trail, these guys are sure to do big things in the ATL. Oh and their Brewmaster is Mitch Steele, the former Brewmaster of Stone Brewing. Yeah, he's on the podcast too.

ASW is a whiskey focused distillery near Midtown Atlanta, right near the SweetWater Brewery. We haven't had many distillers on so tune in for this unique view into a vital part of the bar business. Hey, we even have a few of their whiskeys at The Vortex!

We're joined by local beer blogger, Ale Sharpton. To help with the hosting, we're joined by our friends Hannah and Sarah! Lots of beers are enjoyed, which means the podcast eventually gets ridiculous and loops back to another conversation revolving around Vortex Baby Colin's love life... enjoy!
