Showers of Compliments - An Eventective User

This is the second time I used this venue. First for a wedding shower, and then I used it for a baby shower. The Live Wire team is very accommodating and thorough in making sure that our needs are met, tables and chairs are arranged accordingly, media is working properly, and the facility is clean. They provide great service. I highly recommend them.

Perfect party venue - An Eventective User from Madison

I recently had my husbands 40th birthday party at LWA and I could not be more pleased!! They went above and beyond expectations with every aspect of the party including hotel rooms, caterers, music, etc... If I have another event I will definitely be using these guys again!
