Live Wire Athens is an event venue nestled in the northwest corner of downtown Athens, Georgia. The character-filled facility uniquely includes three versatile spaces, indoors and out, plus multiple concert stages. Locally owned and operated by the Robertson Family, this former warehouse has been transformed into a multifaceted locale, perfect for any event that ranges in 20-500 attendees. The storied venue is commonly booked year-round for Weddings, Private Parties, Silent Parties, and Concerts. Combining a rich history in the Athens music scene, superordinate event expertise, and state-of-the-art presentation, Live Wire Athens guarantees to leave a lasting impression on you and your guests.
The Garden Courtyard fuses the beauty of nature and the historic building to create a romantic atmosphere of urban horticulture.
