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.

The perfect venue!
Our wedding ceremony and reception at Live Wire were amazing - it was everything we could have ever hoped for! We worked with them for a year leading up to the wedding to plan it all out, and Erin was so helpful and easy to communicate with. The place looked amazing for the wedding, and the coordinator and bartenders were all great. They checked in with us through out the night to make sure we had everything we needed and we're happy with the night. I would highly recommend them for a wedding!Sent on 11/25/2019

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!Sent on 05/20/2019

Having worked with Live Wire Athens through a variety of events, including weddings, concerts, festivals, and corporate parties, we have seen first hand their attention to detail and their willingness to put the customer first. The Robertson family goes above and beyond, not only for their clients, but treats all vendors and employees with respect and gratitude. In the 4 years we have worked with Live Wire Athens we have only had positive experiences. We highly recommend the venue and those who run it, for any of your event needs!
An awesome venue with amazing hospitable owners. A very unique location close to the heart of downtown Athens. Plenty of room for your guests in addition to a world class sized patio and deck outside.
Live Wire is a wonderful space for all types of events! It's amazing downtown location can't be beat, especially when you see their outdoor space. They also have great existing equipment for live music!
