I went to my friends wedding here and was amazed and awed at the uniqueness of the building and how beautiful it was. Food was outstanding as well as the staff! If you ever need to book a venue...search no more.

I don't usually give a 5 rating, but this as close to perfect as can be. The space itself it beautiful, with the exposed brick inside, large enclosed courtyard outside and upstairs lounge area give enough room for mingling with your guests. Michael and his staff were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this event space to all!

Make sure you add NOVA 535 to your Halloween activities! The annual NOVAween Halloween party is one you don't want to miss! NOVA 535 has multiple full liquor bars, exciting entertainment and an awesome costume contest. I love Halloween and look forward to this party every year!

NOVA 535 in DTSP not only caters to any and all private events, but also offers fantastic public events. The annual NOVAween Halloween party is St. Pete's FAVORITE costume party for adults. There are plenty of full liquor bars, great music, awesome entertainment and so many surprises each Halloween. Watching the costume contest is such a blast! Can't wait for... More

Had a great time in St. pete for their halloween party Novaween and also their DTSP events. What a pleasant surprise St pete was so cool. The costume party was great but wish more $. Like us so many people really invest in costumes. Plan to go this year!
