The Vortex is a fun bar, unpretentious and with just the right amount of sleaze. The outrageous decor includes some skeletons (I presume they are plastic models, not the real thing!) on motorcycles, sort of the bar's mascot. Beer selection is very good - they have a number of local brews and quite a few craft brews, plus an impressive selection of imports, both in bottles and on tap. Food is delicious and reasonably priced. Serving people are quick, friendly but not overly so, and efficient. Music is turned up but not so loud that you can't have a nice conversation. Smoking is allowed, so it is open only to patrons 18 and older; however, this means you don't have to worry about screaming brats running amok and interrupting your meal, date, Meetup, or whatever. A great place to get together with friends, or just hang out and enjoy some good brewskis.

Such a fun place! The decor is fun and the atmosphere is fun. Its a little cramped and crowded, but it was very hospitable and quick. The service was friendly and knowledeable.
The beer menu is a large one. It doesn't have anything hard to find, but plenty of quality beers to choose from.
The food was amazing. I've been twice. I got the quadruple bypass burger the first time. This included a half pound burger, 5 slices bacon, 5 slices of cheese, a fried egg, grilled onion, and in place of the buns were two grilled cheese sandwhiches. I couldn't eat it all but it was absolutely delicious. The second time I got the blue shroom and it was awesome too. They also have an Elvis burger that has fried bananas and peanut butter on it. The place is known for its burgers, but my wife had other stuff and raved about that too.
Definitely a fun place, good service, good beer selection, and a friendly atmosphere. If you are ever in Atlanta, you should go.

I will base this review on the Midtown branch, but my overall rating would be the same for either location. The atmosphere is dark and eclectic, with random memorabilia and signed pictures everywhere. There music used to be great, and is now ok since the addition of Muzak. The quality is high, as far as I can tell. I never had a bad beer. The service is great, everyone there is laid back. Tattoos are a plus in applying, I would guess. They have at least 20 taps going with new beers added frequently. With the amount of business they do, the kegs do not sit long. As far as bottled beer goes, they have well over 200 lined in glass-front fridges right behind the bar, which makes it fun to pick out what you'll have next. Food is what originally brought me to Vortex and it is great - the best burgers in Atlanta. As you can tell I am a big fan of the place and as luck would have it, I lived in the lofts above the place for two great and fattening years.
