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!

    Perfect Wedding Venue

    We knew the first time we went to Live Wire that it was the perfect venue for our wedding. The space, decor, and overall layout were perfectly-suited for both our reception and ceremony. We were drawn to the fact that it's a family-run business, which felt more personal during a time where we were overwhelmed by all of our options. They took time to meet with us on numerous occasions, including meeting with other members of our family to make sure that everything was perfect. Erin was fair and flexible, and did a great job of getting everything organized and running smoothly. Our vendors had a great experience working with them, as did our family members that were involved in setting up the day-of. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and were a huge asset in making our wedding day perfect. As big music fans, their lighting and sound equipment were top-tier for musical entertainment. We'd recommend Live Wire to anyone looking for a fun and intimate setting for their wedding, reception, or both.
