The Vortex Bar & Grill (Atlanta)

A trio of siblings quietly opened a tiny corner pub 20 years ago on Peachtree Street in Atlanta that served craft beer, liquor, and single malt Scotch along with "a really good hamburger." Although the original location of Vortex Bar & Grill closed when it relocated to a larger loft building a few blocks away, the crowds still pack the bar and its sister location in Little 5 Points for their juicy half-pound sirloin hamburger. But, be nice when you come here. The trio is known to physically remove rude clientele from its "Idiot-Free Zone."
