Nestled among weathered buildings, this beautifully renovated space is part gallery, part event space, part nightclub. For events, it has a commercial-grade sound system, a catering kitchen and a 60-foot bar. It also has a bathrooms so luxe that they were in a national contest for America's Best Restroom in 2009. Each of the 11 bathroom suites (there are no stalls) are cloaked with a heavy birch door for privacy, and every fixture inside is completely touchless. Events held at Nova 535 have included everything from art parties to musical performers to a talent competition known as the Big Bang Show.
