Supernova is the brainchild of DJ Zac Levine, who joined forces with Mutuus Studio, GMD Custom, and artist pals to create Seattle’s most racially diverse atmospheric arts and entertainment nightclub. Creating a secure and inclusive atmosphere for women, BIPOC, and all members of the LGBTQIA+ community as employees, customers, and entertainers was Supernova’s guiding concept. Supernova invites everyone to experience an evening of dance, music, and art while catering to a variety of audiences and promoting self-expression.

6,500 square feet of a heavy-timber warehouse constructed in 1937 on the corner of 1st Avenue and Horton Street in Seattle’s SODO area have been transformed into an otherworldly experience with a capacity for 541 visitors over two floors.

You enter Supernova through a hallway lined with fun house mirrors and walls covered in graffiti art before reaching the second-floor mezzanine that looks out onto the 30-foot-wide stage with an 8-foot-diameter disco ball DJ booth in the middle. From there, you will encounter music, stage lighting effects, reinvented vintage items, and artwork that is seamlessly blended. Other highlights include a retro VW bus bar, a lounge with geometric lighting, and other fascinating stuff to find all over the place.
