BEST SWANKY EVENTS SPACE: Nova 535

Michael Novilla's Nova 535 has been home to a variety of St. Pete art shows and jazz concerts — most notably its loungey jazz nights with the Helios Orchestra. Its exposed brick walls, great acoustics, sleek decor and roomy-comfy digs make it a pleasure to visit for just about any reason. 535 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. N, St. Petersburg, 727-821-6682, nova535.com.
