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

This location offers many events for the public along with its own Entrepreneurs Social Club for the thick-skinned. There are some rowdy, rough-tongued scoundrels in the club that can be offensive in the sharing of their unwarranted opinions. But the location is brilliant with its own parking and accommodations for weddings, large shows, dispays, meetings, concerts, etc. The manager, Michael... More

Thanks for your kind words about NOVA! We are primarily a private venue rented for weddings and holiday parties, yet we do have some public events like the ESC, which does offer frank and (usually very) valuable feedback from fellow Entrepreneurs. Thanks again, hope to see you soon! More

My brother was married there. After the ceremony guests had to step out and they turned it into the reception. It was beautiful for both events and plenty of room to dance.

Love this space and the owner is very astute on what is needed to throw a successful event. Multi-media options, lighting options and multiple floor plan options. He has a variety of local vendors to help make your event sparkle.
