Best Venue Ever!
Nova 535 is everything you want in a venue and then some! The space on its own is breath taking and can work with any theme. Then add in the fact that they provide so many services and becomes a one stop shop for your bar and such you can’t beat them! Our day of coordinator Stephany was a breath of fresh air on a day that can be a little overwhelming. Everyone loved the bartender as well! We could not have asked for anything better. We’d choose Nova again if we had to start over!Sent on 07/21/2019

I cannot day enough great things about Nova 535!
Nova 535 was such a dream to work with, not to mention how beautiful the space is! From our first tour to the day of our wedding, Nova was so helpful and easy to work with. Ruby is amazing and extremely quick to respond to any and all questions. She was always readily available to help with anything that we needed. Ruby was not able to be there on the day of our wedding and we had Maria instead. Maria had been given all of the information for our wedding and she was on top of it! She kept everyone on schedule and made sure that we had no issues the whole day. I did not have a day of planner and was a little worried, but the Nova team went above and beyond to ensure everything that day was perfect. All of our guests loved this venue too. We had plenty of space for our 130 guests and they loved the unique look which includes a great courtyard. If you are looking for a venue that requires minimal decorations, is easy to work with, and provides a memorable space for your wedding Nova is your spot!Sent on 02/18/2020

We love Nova 535! What a unique venue in Historic Downtown St Pete! The courtyard is perfect for a ceremony. The exposed brick and wood floors of the interior are the perfect blend of elegance and industrial-chic. The bar, loft, and even the restrooms are all top-notch.
