Hi, I'm Michael Novilla and I love throwing great parties! So I traveled the world, gathered many amazing ideas and experiences, brought them home to St. Pete, Fl and built us a unique world class event space called NOVA 535. If you're looking for a unique world-class wedding, party or corporate event; like our wild annual NOVAWEEN party, our weekly Entrepreneur Social Club, and other unique experiences, then check us out online to find out out why people's first expression is almost always WOW! =D

Not an attraction; just a rental space for parties, receptions, etc. Bare brick walls, hardwood floor. Large floor area, cool but not cold, comfortable but not stuffy. Large bar area and 2nd-floor balcony. Acoustics not great.More
