Supernova by Mutuus Studio


Bold enough to take its name from an exploding star, Supernova is the vision of DJ Zac Levine who teamed with Mutuus Studio, GMD Custom, and artist friends to establish Seattle’s most culturally inclusive atmospheric arts and entertainment nightclub.

Supernova’s guiding principle was to create a safe and welcoming environment for women, BIPOC, and all members of the LGBTQIA+ community as employees, patrons, and entertainers.

Catering to diverse audiences, and self-expression, Supernova welcomes everyone to enjoy a night of dancing, music, and art.

Located at the corner of 1st Avenue and Horton Street in Seattle’s SODO neighborhood, 6,500 square feet of a heavy-timber warehouse built in 1937 have been transformed into an otherworldly experience with a capacity of 541 patrons across two floors.

You enter Supernova through graffitied art walls and a fun house-mirrored hallway to arrive at the second-floor mezzanine overlooking the 30-foot-wide stage featuring an 8-foot-diameter disco-ball DJ booth at its center.

From there you’ll experience music, stage lighting displays, reimagined nostalgic treasures and artwork integrated everywhere. Other features include a vintage VW bus bar, a lounge defined by bright fluorescent shapes, and other mind elevating things to discover throughout the venue. Source by Mutuus Studio.
