It’s Called the Vortex for a Reason

And the award for “Most Vegas-y Vegas Place for Business” goes to... the Vortex at the Linq. It’s a spectacular outdoor space above a huge ballroom containing a 7,000-square-foot, color-changing edifice, which looks like a tornado that froze mid-twist during a rave.

Like “It must have alcoholic slushy drinks, five-rum coconut coladas and cucumber mojitos.” Also: “There should be a pewter bar with built-in video poker.” Everyone’s definition of “unassuming refuge” is different.
