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.

    A+ venue & staff

    With all the curveballs that COVID threw, Live Wire was excellent working and communicating with us until the rehearsal day was a great success. Erin's attention to detail ensures you will have all the points covered for your event. The venue was perfect and we received compliments from our friends/family on it.

    We've booked our wedding and reception here

    Erin and the Robertson family have been incredibly hospitable and super helpful during our communications. We live in Detroit but will be getting married in Athens next October and Erin has taken such good care of us virtually. She gave us a virtual tour and has been super responsive and informative during the entire booking process. The venue is super cute and a good price for being in the heart of downtown Athens. We were having trouble finding a place that would let our two lab pups participate in the ceremony and Live Wire has been incredibly accommodating and welcoming - exactly what we were looking for! We are so looking forward to getting married here!
