The Location

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 Spaces

The Garden Courtyard fuses the beauty of nature and the historic building to create a romantic atmosphere of urban horticulture. The Parlor uniquely features a large bar, with an open floor plan, providing an intimate space for guests to gather. The great barn doors open from The Parlor to Robertson Hall, revealing walls of vintage brick and barnwood. Here, you will find an open floor plan, a mainstage, and access to our modern-vintage privacy suite. The exposed ceiling, and chandeliers, give Live Wire Athens an ambience of warm modern elegance.

Venue for Wedding Anniversary Party

My wife Morgan and I have enjoyed working with Live Wire. We decided to have an anniversary party since we didn't have a wedding due to COVID. After speaking with different vendors it was clear the Live Wire Athens was the right choice. They offer great flexibility and are very responsive to all our questions.

Elegance + Athens Charm = Perfect Venue

We could not be more excited for our big day, and feel that we couldn't have found a better venue for our wedding. As lovers of the Athens music and bar scene, LiveWire Athens offers the perfect balance between elegance and Athens charm. There isn't a venue in the world that is more "us"! Erin has been incredible in helping us customize our day by offering a variety of packages that fit our wishlist for a reasonable price. As soon as Erin gave us the tour and went over their packages, there wasn't a need to look at other venues. Erin is super responsive with communications and so easy to work with. We are over the moon excited for our big day! Thank you Erin, and everyone at LiveWire Athens!
