History
Originally built in 1954, the Fox Appliance store was formerly a warehouse and showroom. In 2009, the building was transformed into a bar and nightclub then later a music venue. In 2014, the Live Wire Athens company purchased the building and soon after decided to establish itself as a contemporary industrial-style event venue in the downtown Athens area.

    Favorite Venue in Athens!

    I have held several events at Live Wire over the past 4 years. Each time, I am reminded why I continue to book with them. They are helpful, attentive and very friendly. Their patio space is awesome! You cant find this at any other venue in downtown Athens. We held a luncheon for my daughters high school graduation, complete with a taco bar, and photo booth. It was the perfect space for our family to gather for a meal and drinks to celebrate. I highly suggest the venue and their team! You won't be disappointed!
