Loved this place! Atmosphere and staff were fantastic. Attended the Magic Mike tour and loved it! Now if they could find my NC drivers license and mail them to me I would be even more pleased.

One of the best live music venues in the city, and a great little scene of musicians and music lovers! One of my favorite places in Athens without a doubt!

Last night was the first time I've been to Live Wire since it changed from New Earth and I was really impressed with the renovations and new additions! Sound (indoor and outside patio speakers) and new light show rig are awesome and the whole place feels bigger! Keep booking great folks like Todd Nance, Danny Hutchens, Sam Holt, Jon Mills and friends and I'll look forward to more shows at LWA! More...

It's an amazing space run by some great people. I needed a private event space for a surprise birthday party and Live Wire Athens was the perfect venue for it. They are easy to work with and put in extra work to make sure the party went off without a hitch. Can't recommend them enough. More...

Just played a show here. Really great people that run this place, they care and they treat musicians extremely well. They are so accommodating and kind. Go here. Call them. Give them business. More...

I just want to start off by saying that if you need a place for an event with a large group of people, this is the place for you. We planned a sorority event here for our seniors, and everyone absolutely LOVED it. The staff was so easy to work with even when we weren't. When we began planning our event here, we didn't know exactly what we wanted to do with the event, yet the staff continued to check-in with us, and make sure that our event was going to be perfect. On the day of the event everything was set up for us just as we had planned, the staff made sure that everything went smoothly, and the stage was the BEST part of the night! Great prices, amazing/spacious venue, very professional staff, we will definitely be working with Live Wire again!!!! More...

We have been blessed to throw events for a living: concerts, weddings, corporate conferences, holiday parties, student based events, fundraisers. Who wouldn't love that?

Our father encouraged us to start a business doing something we loved. It began as a A/V production company based out of his garage. From there, we have thrown multiple festivals, opened up multiple venues and expanded our services much further than any of us ever anticipated.

When choosing Live Wire Athens, you choose a family business with an aptitude for producing unforgettable events. The Robertson siblings ages range between 30-40 years old, boasting 70+ years experience in the hospitality and event industries. Each of our different backgrounds provide, a unique perspective and approach in finding solutions to any event needs whether it be in advance or during the event.
