The Vortex Lounge section of the Common Area is the main social hangout of the Nexus. Attended by bartenders Dutch Smith and Anan T'Mari the bar is also the preferred hang out of Liam when the Tempest is docked at the Nexus.
The lounge is a single large room what appear to be three fair sized fermenting vats against one wall and a semi-circular bar surrounding a gigantic vat. Additionally there is a small stage and dance floor and ample tables and seating for patrons.
- In one of the concept artworks from The Art of Mass Effect: Andromeda, the Vortex was named as "Shifty Cow".
